    At first glance that looks like a very good potential match to me, and the timeline works.


    PS: Welcome to WS! Great first post!

    chin doesn't look right to me, but it's very close and worth sending in.

    Chin doesn't look right to me either, nor the arch of the eyebrows.

    Barbara Jean Monaco, missing from Virginia Beach, VA August 20, 1978. 18 YOA

    This picture in particular looks similar to our red sweater girl (then again, maybe it's just because she has on a red sweater, lol)

    Alcala was back on the east coast in 77, was he still there in August of 1978? Wait a minute, one wouldn't be wearing a sweater there in VA in August of 78 would they?

    This looks like one of the few sets of pictures that were done as a modeling session, not a candid snapshot. If so, her sweater might have been chosen for it's looks regardless of the time of year.

    Could this be Robin Ann Graham, Missing Since: November 14, 1970 from Los Angeles, California ? The girl in the red sweater and Robin's facial features look very much alike. Look at the eyebrows, almost exact!

    Yes. Also, That's a very thin sweater -- so thin I'm surprised they didn't crop it. I remember when those were in style, in about 1972. We wore them in all but the hottest weather.

    I'm not sure what web site you found this on, but the one you linked to is one of the ones WS policy doesn't allow direct links to. That's why it shows up with asterisks. Is she on one of the regular missing persons sites?

    Couldn't get your link to work for me. Funny, but I think it's the eyebrows that are one of things that would make me think it's NOT Robin. Robin's go straight across and the Alcala gal's definitely go up and arch. JMO

    Welcome! And thanks for suggesting Robin. She looks pretty close to me. I attached thumbnails for comparison. If you go to the large picture at http://cnnnancygrace.files.wordpress...0/03/00781.jpg and zoom in on the sweater girl's eyebrows, you can see a LOT of cosmetics and grooming went into those pretty perfect arches, so I wouldn't rule it out on just that.
