    I see a resemblance, definitely.

    Also, she was found in Atlantic Highlands, NJ, which is only 10.7 miles (per Yahoo) away from Eatontown, where she lived.

    Does anyone know if the folks at doenetwork crosscheck their cases before they're posted? I'm not sure how that works, exactly.....

    The victim was estimated to have died sometime around 1973 to 1975.

Items found near her body included a portion of one pink rubber thong-style sandal; and a leather-like shoe or small boot with a picture of a football scene on the side, stitched in red and white.

    mere, you may have a match. I've highlighted the similarities, and if they were indeed less than 11 miles apart, you really may be on to something, here. Contact the folks at Doe right away with both links, ok? Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions.

    smile22, I would contact the Doe Network directly with any questions, and send both links. If you need a contact there, feel free to e-mail me at HelpForTheMissing@yahoo.com

    amandab, I have no idea how their system works, but you could ask them. I'll be happy to direct you to the one who is in your area, as well, if you'd like.

    With HOPE, Lanie

    I'm a member.... I'll go see if they've been cross checked prior. If not, you can submit it or I can or whomever.... IT LOOKS very good. Good catch

    EDITED:

    SADLY, she's been ruled out through DNA..... my goodness that looked good.

    Blueclouds thanks for checking so quickly. It seemed too easy. We all know it is not.

    Blueclouds - this really looks like a match. How reliable is DNA, considering this girl vanished 20 years before DNA analysis was reliable?

    Did they check her dental records? Really intriguing.

    It was a recent DNA test....since they have the "unknown" victim and the Missing child's family........ it was negative.

    I suppose they can & do make mistakes. I can only hope they are very careful when it comes to identifying missing children.

    I agree... it does look very good. I thought for sure it'd be one to send in. I also know DoeNetwork keeps good records and their 'potential match' database is done with double and triple checking with Law Enforcement.

    YOU WOULDN'T believe how many other cases look so good and come back negative. It's heart wrenching

    Doenet work and matches

    I can vouch for the Doenet's careful record keeping. These things are very carefully checked with LE. I am actually on the panel that votes on Potential Matches. This was a good looking match, so good that it has actually been made (as has been stated) and already ruled out. But keep looking. And do consider joining us there...

    Sorry...

    If I'm not mistaking dna was already done on these two girls but unfortunately there was no match. I remember a couple of months ago several people at the Doe network site posted the resemblence between these girls via the guestbook.

    Monkalup - do they do dental matches, do you know? It just seems like that would be 1000 times easier, and in a case like this, more accurate. If they have good dentals on the victim . . .

    Reading the little blurb about this missing girl her family situation seems unusual - she was a young teenager living with her married sister. Could they take DNA from a man who thinks he's her father, but in fact he wasn't, and that could possibly throw this off?

    Bless you for working with the DoeNetwork. It's just so intriguing, and sad, how many people are missing and how many bodies are unidentified.

    I know DNA is an excellent, usually the best, source for a match, but mistakes and errors are made all the time. I agree with you Katherine, in cases where matches are this similar a cross check with the dental seems necessary.

    Mere - I agree with you, DNA is almost always the best and most reliable.

    In cases where there is a possibility that the parents aren't the parents (I don't know this girl's case at all, so this isn't about her specifically). Cases where teenage girls have babies, and the grandparents raise them as siblings, rather than admitting their daughter got pregnant.

    Maybe I just want it to be her so the mystery is solved.
