    On the bright side, the person I suspect is alive and well.
    No dates for the photos. If you believe you know this person, can you just ask her or send her a copy of one of the photos and see if it is her. She might be able to remember a lot about that day. We know that he didn't kill everyone he took a photo of, but she looks naked (or at least topless) in a room of some kind, so he could have assaulted her. I'm very interested to see what you find out!
    My book, More Than Just A Pretty Face, about the unidentified photos of Rodney Alcala, will be published in 2017. Please visit and join my Facebook group to get all of the most recent information.

    Thanks for the info. The person I had in mind is actually my mother. I ran it by her and while she admitted there was a strong resemblance, she says it's not her. Also, it turns out she was only in San Francisco for two months in 1976.

    The print in the back (or painting) resembles Picasso's cubism period. I do not think it's a Picasso, but heavily influenced by his work at that time.

    Nov, 1980 disappearance doesn't work well, either. Alcala has been in continuous custody since mid-1979. While he might have photographed her earlier, he can't have been involved in her disappearance.

    Although NCMEC says foul play expected in Robyn's disappearance, quite a few other sources say the circumstances are unknown. Which could make it possible Robyn left of her own accord and somewhere along the way years later ran into Alcala. JMO and

    I was wondering if anyone had compared Andrew Jackson "Drew" Greer Jr., 15 yrs old, missing since Feb 12, 1979 Michigan? I see some resemblance. Still question whether this is a girl or a boy.

    Sorry if i am rather late to the discussion, but i really doubt that this person is a he. Mostly because of the fact that she (I'm going to call her she for simplicity) is wearing make-up. http://imgur.com/GyRTJj9 I would like to apologise for my amazingly poor artistry, but i hope it shows where there is a lack of make-up applied. Now of course this dosent exclude the possibility that this person is a transvestite. However i would imagine that someone that looks between the ages of 14 and 19 (personally i would place her somewhere between a high 15 to low 17) might still be "in the closet" when it comes to their sexuality. There are other interesting elements about this person that are purely conjecture on my part, such as what seems to be mild sunburn on he nose and around the eyes, a red discolouration that isn't there on her forehead over which there is hanging hair.This leads me to assume that this photo was taken either during the New-York Summer or while Mr. Alcala was in California. Which in turn might allow for a more precise placement of the date of the photo. Of course there is always the possibility that this person wasn't killed even though she is in a position of weakness, seeing as another woman was posing for Alcala in the middle of some rather barren landscape that looks like California. Unfortunately i don't have these photos to hand right now but i know that they are on this website.

    As a disclaimer, I am not a woman so have never worn make-up and i have never lived in the United States so i don't know how accurate the statements about the sunburn is.
    PS: I have a bad case of dyslexia, so i would like to apologise for any spelling mistakes.

    CBS is a horrible site. Can't believe you have to click thru 108 photos to get to the ID'd ones. I was looking for another; hope these links work
    Found an easier way, click the gallery in the middle of the arrows on the top right, much easier to sort that way

    The third picture above, discussed in the "Woman on Motorcycle" thread, has been identified by her family as Christine Ruth Thornton, missing since August 1977. The last known picture of her is this one by Alcala. She has for reasons no longer clear been flagged as "found alive," but the police were unable to tell her sister how or why.

    I'm convinced this is the NY appartment. So at the latest in 1971 before him being arrested. Furthermore, I don't think he was dumb enough after the assault of the poor little girl in LA to murder people in his own appartment. Sure afterwards maybe, BUT would any of these girls go with him some place after these photo sessions? I hope not so.

    I think Gloria Reiken kind of looks like her, but I dont think it is. http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/3429dfmn.html
