    The sketch is excellent and the tattoo should help a lot in identifying this person. I wonder if there shouldn't be another avenue to post this info...i.e. Fox News or CNN online or one of the cable shows. I guess what I am saying is the flyers that came in the mail for years looking for the missing but proved ineffective after time due to the bad photos or sketches. A new way to help even a small box in a corner from the major publications would get attention if someone knew the people.

    This artist was very good with detail and presented a real person vs. some of the more flat sketches we have seen. I wish I knew this person as I would be on the phone but how many people have seen it?

    There is a way to make this better for the families of the missing and for the victims to receive justice. I think we need to talk about this more.

    Looking at the photo on the DPS website, it appears she was found alive (in the photo, she has been intubated) then died later. I'm assuming a victim wouldnt be intubated if they were declared DOS or DOA.

    No they wouldn't be intubated if they were DOA. I didn't see that link until you posted. I still think this girl can be identified. I find this very sad and I am sure someone somewhere is looking for her.

    I agree, she was found alive and died later on that same day.

    I agree that she should be able to be identified. I wonder what the best avenues would be to getting the sketch of her out in the public? Do you think any of the major news media would be willing to put her face on their news sites?

    I would try Nancy Grace or Greta Van Susteran as a quick hope and a quick pic. It won't get more than seconds but that could be all that is needed.

    Then I would ask Fox or CNN to have a small spot on their online pages to view UID's. I know a lot of people don't even want to think about this kind of thing but for the families and for LE searching it could be an answer. I think our US communities need to get more in step with each other and help with the missing.

    There are some definite similarities to the CT runaway...Height, weight, and the "Jamie" tattoo. Eye color is different, the UID entry makes no mention of the other tattoo, and the CT girl doesn't have freckles (can freckles develop over the course of a year?)
    I think its worth contacting authorities in CT, just to get their opinion.

    Not a match

    I received this from OKC police..

    Thank you for contacting us. We have been able to rule this person out. Up till now this has been the best lead but it did not pan out.

    I found this possible - a missing teen from VA

    Kelly Bitner, VA
    Appears to have blue eyes in the pic but the link says her eyes are brown. She went missing on 6/20 and the OK girl was found on 6/21. Could she have made it from VA to OK that quickly? http://www.missingkids.com/missingki...archLang=en_US

    It looks like a good match. Age, hight and weight are a bit off - but face, lips and eyes looks very much like Kelly. I think you should turn it in.

    I think the age is the only thing that is really alarming. Even that is only off three years. Plus if they don't know who she is how do they know she is 20-25. She could be younger based on her picture, IMO. Kelly looks like she could weigh more than 180. I wonder where they got that from. I know I was heavy growing up and I never would have shared my actual weight with anyone. Plus the height is only off by an inch. Maybe the Jane Doe was 5' 4.5 and they rounded it up. I'm actually 5' 3.75" but I always say 5'4" but I've had nurses call it 5'3". The JD may not be Kelly. It's hard to say. They don't seem like a perfect match but very similar. I'm not comfortable calling it in because I hate talking on the phone. However, if anyone else thinks it's a good match and wants to call it in, please do so. P.S. The sketch of the doe has moles on the side of her face. Kelly appears to have moles as well but higher up than the sketch. I can't see the moles on the actual J.D. because of the medical tape or whatever that is. In any event, thanks for your opinion.

    Jamie Michelle McChurin

    Sorry i dont know how to link this page....

    Here is another Link to her...http://www.nampn.org/cases/mcchurin_jamie.html

    Height and weight are a bit off but she could have gained weight.. the composite and picture is what struck me. They look very similar. Even the freckles on her face look alike.

    ETA... Ok i received a response back and it doesnt look like Jamie McChurin is this UD.
