    Based on info I've seen on a UID thread, Tommi may have also been known as Tommi Ford who was in 7th grade in the 1973 Pinole Junior High School yearbook. Her mother, Lorna, was married to a Paul A. Ford from 1972-1975 in Contra Costa Co. And if so, this may be a picture of her.

    There is a discussion on this case in relation to a Jane Doe at https://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...o-Oct-81/page2 . Unfortunately, whilst it adds a little information it does not take the case any further forward.

    Interestingly on Ancestry, there is a Tommi L Eaglin in Terre Haute, Indiana with exactly the same DoB (15 March 1960) as our missing. However I cannot find further information to indicate any connection (or lack of).

    Yes that's where I got a lot of this info from.

    I think that Tommi Eaglin is maybe a coincidence as her middle name is Lou not Lee but are there any related family member names to Tommi Eaglin that you can give me (I don't have ancestry) and I can look into this more?

    I wonder if she is a victim of Shermantine and Herzog?

    I have submitted Tommi as a possible match for a UID found in Yosemite. https://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...as-Victim-1983

    Reasons she may be a possible match as follows:
    - Age MATCH: Tommi 21 years old when disappeared, Jane Doe estimated age 20-23
    -Hair MATCH: Tommi's hair was described as frosted brown, Jane Doe blonde to light brown
    - Height WITHIN RANGE: Tommi 60 inches (5 foot), Jane Doe 5'05" to 5'06"
    - Weight MATCH: Tommi 95-100 pounds, Jane Doe 100-125 pounds
    - Circumstance/geography WITHIN REASON: Tommi went missing from Rescue near Sacramento in Northern CA, however she was believed to have been possibly travelling towards Reno NV or Oakland CA. In conclusion, her actual intended destination was uncertain so for her to be hitchhiking near Fresno (within a 5-6 hour drive from Rescue) is a reasonable scenario.
    - Timeline MATCH: Tommi missing July 1981, Jane Doe estimated date of death fall 1981 to Spring 1983
    - Physical likeness MATCH: please see attached side by side comparison pic
