    Bump! The June 1, 1989 date is the date she was last known to be in Georgia - she left Washington around October 1988.

    NamUs has Misty's LSA date as April 1, 1989. So now we have April '89, Oct '88 and June '89.
    Using the NamUs date - today is 25 years Misty has been missing.

    https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/842/15

    Dental Status: Dental information / charting is available and entered
    DNA Status: Sample submitted - Tests complete
    Fingerprint Status: Fingerprint information is currently not available

    I wonder why fingerprints aren't available if she was last seen being arrested.

    Hi everyone, I am new here so please excuse me if I do this wrong. This is my sister Misty. I would like to clear somethings up about this case. Not that it would make to much of a difference in the case. ( I am not sure anyway)The last time I seen Misty was Jan 20 1988.
    I don't even remember where she was going to be honest. I know it was January 20 because my son was 10 days old and it was the first time she had ever seen him. We got a call from the police in or around Oct through Dec of 1988. They said she was drunk in public they were going to have to hold her in an office space, they only had a mans jail? Sounds crazy I know. They said she looked possibly pregnant, looking maybe 5 months or so. I was 5 months pregnant at the time also. The police released her after she sobered up and took her off the missing list. So we had to redo that whole thing again down the line somewhere.
    With that said we don't know if she was pregnant or not. My guess is that bad livers could make a person look pregnant. I am guessing here. It could have been anything. Also I am inclined to think Misty may have had Polly cystic ovaries. One because she had done plenty to get pregnant in the past and she had a hair problem. Hairy back, arms etc...That is a symptom of this disorder.
    Also she was 4'10 1/2" tall not 5.0 She had had dental work and had fillings but had a prefect smile. She had a small chip on a front tooth but it was not noticeable (to me anyway) She wore a smaller sized shoe like 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 in tennis shoes maybe lager in dress type shoes. Also she mostly wore nice type clothing with hills. I did not see her in tennis shoes very often. Her pants size ranged from a 0 to maybe a smaller 5.
    One more thing the police do have finger prints of hers but they are most likely under my other sisters name. Due to Misty giving my other sisters name when she shop lifted once. I am unaware if GA took prints or not.
    I guess that is it for now. Anyway my name is Benita I am not only here to help with anything if possible but I would like to find my sister also. Happy spring everyone!

    Question Question, failures to input info??

    Sorry if I am doing this wrong. Here is my question if anyone knows the answer I would be grateful. I believe I found my sister on namus. Here is the thing. This case just appeared on namus not to long ago, as I am always looking.Why now appear? There is no composite? The case its self does not list likelihood of finding identity (in stars) plus it says there is no DNA or dentals??Why would that be? Case number 2187

    Hey bigsis, is it the Gilmer County, Georgia Jane Doe?
    http://identifyus.org/en/cases/full_report/2187

    If it is her Doe Network page says her dentals are available. I would give the case worker or agency working the case a call if you feel that it could be her. I'm not sure they would have done a DNA profile back in 92 but if they didn't maybe they could exhume the remains and do one if they feel they had a good chance identifying her. This is all guesswork on my part maybe someone more knowledgeable will chime in, good luck to you.

    Her Doe page,

    I just looked up the Georgia Jane Doe the sister found & Misty has been ruled out as a match. I hope the family can find some answers. I cannot even imagine going through something like this. Sad.
