    June Clonch saw the blurb on her daughter when the magazine hit newsstands Wednesday. On a page adjacent to her daughter's photograph, June noticed a picture of Elizabeth Smart embracing her parents.
    If I'm reading correctly the Clonch's weren't even contacted before People Magazine ran their daughter's picture.

    Samantha has been missing almost 11 years. Come home soon sweetie.

    I had seen it mentioned previously on Websleuths that Samatha shares many characteristics to this unidentified female found in Oklahoma. Samatha is not on the list of NAMUS ruled out. https://identifyus.org/cases/5192 Someone in my missing Facebook group pointed out the similarities today.

    DNA for Samatha now says "Sample submitted - Tests complete"

    Also, only other stuff I can find is that Samatha's father Richard died when she was 6, so that explains why he's not really mentioned in any articles.
