I was going to mum about this, not to cause stirr unecessarily, I have been in contact with a TV station on the west coast. They are going to see (hopefully) in the next few days if they can write a story about Anna and air it. I feel that we need to take advantage of the media, the larger the better hence television which reaches the masses.

A month ago there was a story about a girl who was kidnapped at age five, they aired her story and with God's grace she was reunited with her family!

Annasmom and I are in touch with the Producer and will followup this week as Christmas approaches, my hopes and wishes are they air it before the big day!

Fingers crosssed everyone!

~ well, sadly they cannot do the story but will let me know if things change.

~ I immediately sent another email off to another TV station in the Bay Area, I haven't heard back yet.

~ I have emailed the SF Chronicle as well, in hopes they can see it in their hearts to write a little story about Anna.

Best, SK

Today is the 37th anniversary of Anna's disappearance. Thinking of Anna today, as I do everyday. Praying this is the year we get this mystery solved.

The pictures in this one look EXACTLY like actress Crista Flanagan. I mean..exactly. Not that I think it's the same person, but as a person who is very good at identifying nuances in faces, just remembering that will trigger my memory should I come across anyone who resembles Crista (I live in the Bay Area, so fairly close to the original city).

Hi sfbaynancydrew,

I googled CF and noticed she has blue eyes, unless there is more than one CF actress.. ..

SK, yes she does, it wasn't the eye color, it was the black and white sketches that were posted. Just saying the likeness was uncanny. Again--I don't think that's HER obviously, just saying if I'm scanning pics of people, it's a good reference.

Her bio puts her nine years younger than Anna. What a pretty girl, however.

Annasmom, thanks for responding. I feel like I set up my observation incorrectly...I was not implying that the actress was Anna. What I was saying is that in people's scanning of pictures it can be hard to remember the original face you're looking for a resemblance in. But having a memory to draw from that is familiar makes it a lot easier. In those black and white sketches I was shocked at how those sketches looked EXACTLY like the actress, who I've watched a zillion times on MadTV. Did I think it was her? Not at all. Her age and other identifiers were wrong (no mole, wrong eye color, too young, seems to have an established history, etc). However, now that I have it burned into my memory, should I see someone out in public who makes me go, "wow, that person looks just like CF the actress!" I will immediately look for a tell tale mole and any other signs that it might be Anna, because it will be burned into my memory. Without that reference, I wouldn't associate that person with Anna. Does that make sense? She also resembles the "So You Think You Can Dance" judge Mary Murphy. Both women share very similar bone structures and features.

Visit and Recollection

Today a former WS member who was active a couple of years ago was in the area for a convention and wanted to look at the house on Purisima Creek Road. We drove out there--you can't see much because the present owner has put up tall fencing all around--but on the way back my visitor asked what was my intuition right at the time Anna went missing. She said that a mother's intuition is seldom wrong. I told her, as I have always told people when they asked me this, that I really had no idea. I said we had gone to look at the creek because we (I) thought that if that's where she went, we didn't have much time and that we should look there first. Later on, though, after the visitor had left, I remembered exactly the sequence of events. I was sitting in the living room and sensed a big silence. I looked in the back yard, then I went out the back door and up the left (west) side of the house toward the road, calling and calling. I don't know if this has any meaning or not, but it is the first time I recalled standing under the trees in the westmost corner of the yard, calling, when Joe came up to me and said "She's gone."

Identifinders

I just want to let everybody know that Colleen Fitzpatrick, a forensic genealogist (http://www.identifinders.com) has been very actively researching Anna's case after reading Searching for Anna and in the past few days has sent us a great deal of information about sources she's looking at. I have forwarded these documents to DrDoogie, SherlockJr and Cubby. For one thing, she has access to a national database which lists every "Anna" born in September of 1967 and also every "Christiana" born in that month and year. Her working theory is that adoptees rarely abandon their birth date and usually also hang on to their first name, or something like it. You will recall that one of the names Brody wanted us to give Anna was Christiana.

I received the info on the databases Annasmom. I need a few days to sort through it. I'm ecstatic Colleen is interested in working on Annas case with her incredibly succesfull track record!

I recommend those following Annas case take a look at the identifinder site Annasmom linked and read about some of Colleens successfull searches and accomplishments. Hopefully she will be able to add Annas case onto her list of succesfull cases!

Okay, folks, I need your help recalling something: Italy has been mentioned as a possible place where GW and GB may have taken Anna. Why did we suspect this? Did GW travel there around 1972-73? Some other reason to suspect an Italian connection?

Please help me out because my old brain does not work like it used to.

Search Tip

This may be unneccesary, but since we have had so many comments about difficulties searching for information regarding Anna's case within this forum, please do not utilize the search threads option of the search this forum feature. Searching threads only reads the thread titles- at least that I have found. Thread titles can be easily scanned reviewing pages 1 and 2 of this forum.

It is much easier to find things when utilizing 'search this forum' (which appears at the top of the forum when you open this forum and before you choose any individual thread) and the 'search posts feature'. That way ALL threads with the keywords you are searching appear in the search results. Or if you are searching for something within an individual thread, open that thread and use the search this thread feature still choosing the search posts feature rather than searching threads. I almost never use the search threads feature/option as opposed to search posts feature/option

hth!

ETA: Make sure you go to the very bottom of the advanced search option and click show results as posts. Otherwise the results are still buried within the lengthy threads.

As we are making timelines and lists, did we ever have a list of the restaurants the two G's frequented? It might be worth revisiting the restaurants and seeing if we can sleuth out anyone who worked at those restaraunts during the time periods the two Georges were 'regulars'. Or anyone who was also a regular there at the time, though employees would be most likely to recall the two G's.

Dear Annasmom,
following Anna case all days... I no missed, I was busy for another free search, ended with success, but I had only great ingratitude and also some troubles.
Abt GB, I already replied abt Italy Consulate and the possibility that Anna can be in Italy. Sure all is possible... but is a very far possibility..
I believe that GB and GW had not the necessary support for to send Anna in Italy by some way..
What, instead, let me think, is that no TWA trips for GB; only GW..... now I know not the GW life before that Anna missing, if he was a usual customer of TWA, or, instead, if this travels are really some link with Anna disappearance.
Second my opinion the trips have some link with Anna disappearance.
Going back to Italy Consulate, seeming to me that a person that contact the Italian Consulate in foreign country, well it must be of italian heritage in some way..
So I also analyzed the possibility that GB (false name) was in some way of italian heritage, the Italy Consulate on Squibb booklet, and the picketing of GB abt JS in article of 1941, and JS was also of italian heritage, so maybe the Italy in some way entering in Anna search.. in effects, why GB picketing just a italian barber?
I searched the peoples with similar name (GB) in italian spelling and residing in California and I found one record, but the person died young, so it cannot be our GB,and I abandoned this trace...

Sorry I missed this question yesterday, all my Squibb notes are at work, however from reading the Squibb notes, I am assuming Waters jotted down the 'Italian Consulate' entry around 1970/71 when all the Squibbs were written, so, before Anna disappeared. I can post the page Monday. ( I didn't have time to post on Friday ).
