    SKELETAL REMAINS FOUND IN NORTH MAHONING TOWNSHIP

    12/31/2008

    The skeletal remains found in North Mahoning Township were found in a wooded area near Marchand. Indiana County Coroner Mike Baker said a person walking through the woods discovered the remains Monday around 1pm.
    The remains appear to be those of an adult, and Baker says he will work with a forensic anthropologist to determine age, sex and stature. Then, investigators will compare their findings with a list of missing people.
    The forensic anthopologist assisting the coroner is Dr. Dennis Dirkmaat of the Mercyhurst College Forensic Science Department in Erie.
    The remains have already been sent to the forensics laboratory at Mercyhurst, and Baker says it may take a week before any more significant information is determined.

    Marchand is located along Rt. 119, south of Punxsutawney.

    Rozey,

    The first person that I thought of when I saw this thread was Alicia Bernice Markovich who has been missing since 1987 from Blairsville, Indiana County. She was only 15 at the time she disappeared, but it seems like she is one of the only people that I found from Indiana and surrounding countieshttp://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...ch_alicia.html

    Yep, Alicia is the only one I have found so far from Indiana County. But there are a few other interesting cases from adjacent counties. For instance. Joey Lynn Offutt, Joey has been missing since 2007 from Sykesville in Jefferson County located 20.7 mi north of Marchand, Idiana County. Incidently Rt 119 is a direct route from Marchand to Sykesville.

    Hopefully they are going to be able to make an identification soon, it can give a family closure. It is just so unbelieveable how people go missing without a trace....

    I'm confused - how do you guys know already that the skeleton is female? the news articles said that they hadn't determined age, sex or stature yet.
    Some people do crossword puzzles or Soduko in their spare time...I look at skeletal reconstructions and work on UID puzzles. I swear I'm not this morbid in person!

    Help Fred Murray find his daughter and bring her home. He should not be walking those woods alone!

    I am not sure what sex the UID is, I was just speculating because a few of missing people from the area are females, that's all. We don't have a lot of people missing from the western/central PA area so like I said, it was just a speculation......

    Suzanne,

    I will look and see if I can find any other articles on the UID.

    As of Saturday 1:34am there are no updates on the UID remains found.

    Suzanne ....search Marchand on google maps also on the NCMA site there is a missing adult map.

    We were just brainstorming about local cases of missing adults. There are also several males missing from surrounding counties but the majority are females.

    Here are some possibilities, I went back all the way to 1998 just in case they were off a little bit. I also didnt just pick people who were close to the area because you never know. It would help if we had more of a discription to go on. These people are from 1998-1999, I will search for more on CharleyProject.
