    There is also Shonda Stansbury who is missing from Roanoke Rapids, which is only 30 minutes from here. I wish they would release more info on this. I was reading the comments and a lady said that her son is missing and they called and confirmed to her that it was not him.

    The first person I thought of was Jamie Fraley, who is missing from Gastonia North Carolina (which is about 4 hours from where the remains were found..but I think it's a possibility)

    Here's some other possibilities:

    Clarence Jenkins missing from Tarboro (20 minutes outside of where the remains were found)

    Leah Roberts missing from Raleigh (an hour outside of where the remains were found)

    Shonda Stansbury missing from Weldon (45 minutes from where the remains were found)

    Joy Marie Winters missing from Goldsboro (an hour from where the remains were found)

    Dont forget Travis Baker, missing from Claremont, NC, about 215 miles,but you never know. His family is waiting on the results from some remains found closer to their home, but anything is possible.

    The link in OP is gone but I expect it's this Feb 2009 case:

    Posted: February 13, 2009
    Rocky Mount, N.C. — Police were investigating skeletal remains found Friday along Melton Drive in Rocky Mount.

    City personnel on clean-up duty found the human remains just before noon near a wooded area, police said.

    RALEIGH -- It was a copy of a 2002 CAT scan that finally put a name, a face to the bones and mummified remains found eight months ago among the decaying leaves in a thicket of woods north of Rocky Mount, where six women have been murdered.

    Elizabeth Jane Smallwood, 33, of Rocky Mount was no longer a lost person, thanks to a world renowned expert and a program at N.C. State University that is pioneering the use of forensic science in crime scene investigations. Using specialized computer software, forensic anthropologist Ann Ross was able to match the unique features of the weathered skull to Smallwood's old CAT scan - a three-dimensional X-ray.

    Smallwood's body was one of six found since 2005 in the rural, swampy corner of Edgecombe County about 60 miles northeast of Raleigh. The first five already had been identified as poor African-American women. Flummoxed by the lack of clues and suspecting a possible serial killer, Rocky Mount police requested a task force to be formed in June to assist in investigating the deaths.
