The clothing doesn't look like something a 40 year old woman would wear.

FL-Sarasota Jane Doe - Feb. 2007
The victim was discovered on February 6, 2007 in Sarasota, Sarasota County, Florida.
I searched and feel that this person is a possible:
Melissa's hair is lists as blond but looks strawberry blond in the photos.
Different clothing than listed.

I think that Melissa Anita Walker is a good possibility. She resembles the sketch, the timeline matches. Height,weight and age also match.
What I find problematic is the location (Texas - Florida), but the distance could be an explanation why no connection was made between the UID and Walker.
There is not much information about Walker: Did she have breast implants like the UID? Have her nose and right wrist been fractured some time in her life?
I don't think that Ashley Baker could be a match because she is too young (15). The UID's age range ist 30 - 45 years."There Is a Light That Never Goes Out." (The Smiths)

Texas and Florida aren't so far apart.. Melissa Walker's picture does bear an eerie resemblance, and I agree, most of the information does match..
I'm also curious about the implants.R.I.P Jenni-Lyn Watson

I will contact LE tomorrow regarding Melissa.

i think melissa is a good possible. i was looking into this before i found the thread, and i was thinking Heather Jean Johnson: http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/2156dfmd.html
was a good possible due to description, breast implants (also date they were manufactured in UID was a year before she disappeared), and lifestyle
the height is off, but that doesn't worry me after years of seeing discrepancies on that. the age is a little more concerning...
fwiw, jules if you get in contact with the LE you might want to suggest heather as a possible.'Nothing clears up a case so much as stating it to another person.'

Melissa definitely looks like a good match. Everything about the bone structure of her face corresponds perfectly -- cheekbones, nose, distance between nose and upper lip, and overall shape of the face.
Even though there is no side view of Melissa, you can see that her chin juts forward just as Jane Doe's chin does, and the width of her chin matches also. The crease below her lower lip is spot-on.
Good find, Jules.

I was looking at this case earlier and found some things on The Charley Project and NAMUS. Her page on NAMUS was last updated on Dec. 24, 2009 and Tina D'Ambrosio from Arizona was a confirmed rule-out. I did find the case of Tamara E. Toy on The Charley Project as missing from Bradenton, Florida on May 6, 2006. She was believed to have been killed by her boyfriend. He later confessed to some other sources that he buried her body in Eastern Manatee County and then committed suicide at the jail where he was incarcerated. I think the area where this body was found was about 30 minutes from Western Manatee County in Sarasota.
The Doe Network lists her age range from 30 to 45, but NAMUS lists them as between 36 and 45. On Feb. 5, 2010, the Sarasota Herald published an article on the Jane Doe and listed the age of the remains as between 30 and 40. I will place the link to that article below. Tamara's stats were 5'06, 150 lbs, blonde hair and blue eyes, age 44. But it looks as if in one of her pictures, her hair was a longer reddish brown color, not to mention in the Sarasota article it stated that while the vicitims hair was reddish brown, there were also blonde streaks found in it, too.
I'll post the pictures below, too. What do you guys think? I wish that you could email tips in Florida, however all internet communication with public offices in that state is public record. So in order to remain anonymous or to stay off the public record, you have to call the tips in.
