    GA - McDonough, WhtFemale Skeletal 231UFGA, 18-40, off I-75, Nov'73

    Sleuthers, I need your help please! Could you have a look at this link re. Gloria Jean Baird, where I have posted regarding a UID that was added to Doe Network the other day & which I'd like to look into further, but I really need more feedback. I've never done this before, so any and all feedback would be appreciated. Of course, I'll read up on the rules, if it's decided that I should submit. Link:

    Thanks all!

    ok, I'll make this easier (hopefully). Here are the links to Doe & Charley:

    UID caucasian female

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/231ufga.html

    & Gloria's Charley Project:

    http://charleyproject.org/cases/b/baird_gloria.html

    and attaching a side-by-side I made.

    thanks, all!

    By appearance, TOD, and location, I say this is a good match. Hard with only a skull, because age, height, build, and possibility of having giving birth can't be narrowed down. I think the UID looks very much like Gloria. I would call and see if she has been ruled out preciously.

    Not a lot to go on, but they do look similar.

    yes, agreed...it was the shape of the face that got me. I looked at the UID pic & immediately thought, 'that woman in Georgia...'

    I live in Scotland & ringing isn't always convenient, due to the time difference, etc. I shall e-mail LE and ask.

    thanks!

    I think you should submit it, at least to see if the UID has been compared to Gloria Jean Baird. According to google maps, Atlanta and McDonough are only 31 miles apart and the reconstruction really resembles Gloria Jean Baird. Although, the estimated date of death is 1973, the skull could be older, in my opinion.
    I would say: Go ahead!

    A run-away may leave on purpose, but that doesn't mean that they are able to get back home.... Never stop searching.
