Here is a list of missing children to consider:
Sarah Avon, Tammy Belanger, Tracy Byrd, Debra Cole, Amy Fandel, Christine Farni, Ann Gotlib, Raylene Helsley, Holly Hughes, Tricia Kellett, Charlotte Kinsey, Marjorie Luna, Sherry Marler, Toni McNatt-Chiappetta, Elizabeth Miller, Colleen Orsborn, Cindy Pallett, Tiffany Papesh, Dean Pyle Peters, Emma Vaughn.
I underlined the ones I thought were closer matches and put in bold the three I believe look most similar to the reconstruction.
Without more information, it's very difficult to find a match. Any unusual teeth? Any gaps? I wish there was more information about this child.

Sherry Marler was 13 years old when she went missing on June 6, 1984, from Greenville, Alabama. This is about 400 miles south of Campbell County, TN.

Raylene Helsey was also 13 years old when she went missing on January 5, 1983, from Ruston, LA. LE believe she was killed by her father and buried close to home. He claims she ran away after he admittedly beat her.

Charolette Kinsey was 13 years old when she went missing on September 26, 1981 from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She went missing with a friend after they attended a carnival. She had silver caps on her lower front teeth, so she could be ruled out easily if there were more information about this Jane Doe.

TN looks for identity of female child skeletal remains from 1985

Our local news had this story, they have managed to do a facial reconstruction from some remains found 23 years ago. Investigators estimate this girl was 11 to 13 years old in 1984. The bones had been in the elements for a year at the time, which puts her born somewhere 1971-1973 according to their estimates. This girl would have been a year or two younger than me.

I thought I would post it here in case any of you guys have any thoughts.

Skeletal mystery: TBI seeks help in identifying girl





The article says "Found with the remains were a bracelet, plastic buttons and some scraps of clothing."

Just an FYI

I did call in a possible match of Raylene Hensley with this unidentified girl and was told that it is not a match.

It is hard to believe that a girl this young is is not identified. I can't wait for the day that there is a a complete DNA database to match the missing and unidentified.

Had some contact with LE. Sent in three names, Raylene Helsley, Sherry Marler and Charlotte Kinsey. The reply was that two were eliminated and the third needed to be looked at. So if one of those eliminated was Raylene, who's the other one? I sure think the composite looks like Sherry. Now we just wait and see on this one.

Duplicate thread w/ "Unidentified White Female, 1985 Texas connection? "

Should we try to get these 2 threads merged?

Question Ellen Linda Akers....is there a connection?????????????

Has Ellen Linda Akers been eliminated as a possible match to the reconstruction of this victim located in April, 1985 in Tennessee? I see in the post above that her description is listed but do not see any updates after that. Both Ellen and the reconstruction are very similar in appearance.

Hi Intuition, I can't find where Ellen has been eliminated in either this thread or the other one. I haven't seen any new updates on this case at all recently here in TX.

Jules190osu,

Try and contact Rocky Wells with the Doe Network, he will respond back to you within a few days. (his email is in the contact info on their website) I actually turned in Cherie Mahan from PA on this UID and Rocky told me she was already ruled out.
Good Luck!!

Chaddylex :-)

I was looking at this UID tonight and found the following information:

Melinda Creech has been ruled out for this child.

http://s10.invisionfree.com/usedtobedoe/ar/t29264.htm

...and according to another post on a messageboard, investigators will consider someone missing since 1979.

http://s13.invisionfree.com/PorchlightUSA/ar/t3461.htm

If that's the case that's a lot of missing children that could be a possible match.

TN- UID Female 482UFTN, Campbell County, 1985 to: FL- Peggy Rahn, Pompano Beach, 1969

I didn't see any previous posting on this one. I realize there is a big gap in missing date and estimated time of death, but the reconstruction is very close.

but they may not belong to the victim and a few scraps of clothing

Circumstances of Disappearance
Peggy and Wendy Stevenson vanished from Pompano Beach on December 29, 1969. They were last seen walking toward the beach parking lot to buy ice cream cones.
A day later, a clerk at a nearby convenience store reported a man buying ice cream for two young girls on the previous afternoon. The clerk identified photos of Peggy and Wendy, describing their companion as a white man in his 20s, six feet tall, around 200 pounds.
Serial-killer Gerald Schaefer was a suspect in the case. He was never charged, though prosecutors publicly accused him of the crime in 1973. Schaefer denied the slayings publicly, but later confessed in a letter dated April 19, 1989.

The boots detail for me rules out two cases to be this girl - Colleen Orsborn and Marjorie Luna. I saw Marjorie Luna's case at my work (I work at Wal-Mart, and they display profiles of lost and exploited children), and through that case, I found out about Tammy Belanger and Colleen Orsborn. Of those three, only Tammy Belanger was described as wearing boots on the day she disappeared, but since she was only 8 at the time, this would disqualify her. Someone contacted Colleen Orsborn's family a few years ago and confessed to killing her and burying her in Florida, so in my mind, that would eliminate her as well. I would further eliminate Ann Gotlib from the list, as an inmate who served time with Gregory Oakley Jr. told police that Oakley had admitted to kidnapping Gotlib and later killing her by an injection of Talwin. Police have said that if Oakley were alive today, he would most likely be convicted of her murder with all the evidence they now have against him.

I also checked out the names that Zanko underlined, particularly the bold ones, and again, only one of them was described as wearing boots the day she disappeared, that being Raylene Helsley. Assuming the boots did belong to the victim, it seems Helsley would be a likely candidate. It's too bad we have so little to go on other than that and the facial reconstruction. It would help to know what those other scraps of clothing that were supposedly found were.
