    I don't like those sketches. The sketch on the left looks nothing like the one on the right. There is a photo in the middle, I wonder where they got that? The sketch on the right more closely resembles the photo than the sketch on the left, IMO. It is a shame they haven't been unable to identify her. In the 22 years since she has been found, you would think that some relative would report that she hadn't been seen. She was a cute lil darlin'.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I was under the impression that the "photo" in the middle, was actually a sketch also....
    It's sad that this child has gone unidentified for this many years ! Someone has to miss her !!

    OMG what a cute little girl! I can not believe that her parents aren't looking for her!! It makes you wonder if they were involved.

    My gosh! How do you just toss a child out the window like she was garbage? That's a shame this case is unsolved and that no one ever came forward to claim this precious baby. It makes me wonder if the mother might not have been murdered too or maybe she's the murderer. I just can't believe no one else ever reported her missing. It's like no one even knew she existed.

    She could be from anywhere considering where she was found. The area is an easy, possibly, short drive from the New Orleans area, Mobile, Florida, or any part of MS.

    It seems strange that the baby was wearing something completely different from what she was reportedly seen wearing.

    Is it possible that they were hit, in the dark, and the person just drove off? It seems like they could have accidentally, even unknowingly, been knocked off the bridge.

    If both mom and baby are missing all this time, that's more believable that no one really knows what happened, than if just the baby went missing. If this mom was a transient type her family may not even know she had a baby.

    Sure is a sad story, and a sad way to go, so anonymously.

    Okay, so the truck driver (in the linked newspaper articles) says he spotted a body in the river of an adult wearing a blue plaid shirt and blue jeans. The police discover the body of a baby 10 miles away wearing red plaid. They search and search for the adult body, who they assume is the baby's mother, and they never find her.

    Where did she go?

    Somebody suggested the mother and child were hit by a car, but I still don't understand why the bodies would be so separated. And I can't figure out why they would search extensively for the body the trucker said he saw, but never find it.

    I wonder if the child's mother was a runaway who maybe was pregnant when she ran away, and that is why nobody is looking for the child. They don't know she existed.

    That trucker knew an awful lot about a submerged body under a bridge he was crossing - right down to the shirt and the pants it was wearing. How can you cross a bridge, spot a body possibly caught on a piling, slow down, focus in, plainly see it and an ice chest from a semi? And, then, BAM, the body disappears? That sounds like a really strange story.

    Also, wonder how hard they worked on finding that pick-up truck she refused to get into? Maybe she was running from someone and that someone was in that truck.
