    Notice that the age progression has what seems to be a mole on Anna's left cheek. She had a mole near her eye on the right cheekbone (barely visible in the kindergarten picture), but none on the left cheek. She also has a smallpox vaccination scar on one upper arm.

    I asked Anna's Mom to tell us what she thinks Anna may look like as a grown up based on family likenesses, etc. This is what she replied:

    Please note: This is absolutely a guess
    about 5'8"
    130 pounds
    light brown hair with blonde highlights
    and probably glasses.

    Maybe athletic (though I'm not, and I'm a lot rounder than I was at 38!)



    Note: Thank you again Anna's Mom for this info!

    Save me some time here....somewhere in all these posts I remember reading something about a possible medical condition that was never posted. Annasmom or Dr Doogie, could you send me a message what this might be?

    I am not aware of Anna having any medical problems, though I may have missed it myself in all the posts. Annasmom might be able to give you a definitive answer on that.

    No, there was no medical condition. Maybe you are remembering that I said she had a smallpox vaccination scar on one upper arm (and I don't remember which one).

    I thought it might be a good idea to post the timeline for the day that Anna disappeared here for quick reference.

    Timeline at Ranch on 1/16/1973



    7:00 AM- Joe left for work

    7:30 AM- Anna and brothers on bus to school

    7:45 AM- Annasmom feeds chickens and animals

    10:00 AM-Rooster attacks horsewoman, Annasmom brings her to house,

    hysterical

    -another horseperson arrives at Ranch

    -horsepeople return to horsebarn together

    -rooster attacks woman again

    -horseman kills rooster and tosses in creek

    11:00 AM-Two friends with infant arrive from SF for visit with Annasmom

    Noon – Joe returns – construction job shut down due to rain

    12:20 – Anna arrives on school bus

    12:40 – Anna goes outside to play in yard, puts on red coat and rubber boots

    1:30 PM- Ranch resident (family friend) comes in back door for visit

      • Anna comes back in house
      • Friends from SF finish visit and leave
      • Resident/friend goes to road to collect previous day’s mail, returns
    2:00 PM- Annasmom hears Anna in bedroom/porch, talking (to cats?)

    2:10 PM- Carpenter friend of Joe arrives for visit

    2:15-2:20 PM- Annasmom, no longer hearing Anna-sounds, becomes

    alarmed. She had been monitoring sounds as mothers do-

    back door opening and closing, Anna playing in yard

    2:20 PM – Annasmom panics-she, Joe and the two friends rush outside to

    look for Anna, shouting her name

    2:45PM – After a frantic search of the creek area and outbuildings, Sheriffs

    Department is called

    3:15 PM- Sheriffs Deputies arrive, blast siren. Formal search begins of ranch

    and creek

    *** Sometime later Joe’s friend reports that while coming up Purissima Rd,

    that he stopped and got out of his truck to admire some horses grazing.

    While there he was passed by a westbound van with two people inside

    that waved to him. He also said that when he arrived at our house at

    2:10 PM he saw Anna at the front of our house, said hi to her and came

    in.

    In the younger pictures of Anna, she appears to have unusually curly hair, a little less so in the last picture, but still curly. In the snap shots taken was her hair "curled" via hair rollers, or was that natural?

    Anna had naturally curly hair.

    Please anyone who has been closely following this case - take the time to post a summary about her case. I came here as a result of Jaycee Lee Dugard being found and I'm sure that many other's will as well. Do a summary "sticky" , something that is easy to digest and relatively quick to read...Anna deserves a few minutes of time! I am not well versed enough in her case to do so but would gladly participate in any activity/attention that would result!

    It's very frustrating to come here and to spend time researching Anna's case only to find that there are virtually NO PICTURES available online. Nothing. All of Doogie's links to pics are no longer available and virtually anything else that has been posted leads to a "not available" link. Why? I would imagine that any pics that could help in this quest should still be accessible??? It's really difficult to follow or research many of the possible leads discussed here without them!

    Just My Opinion.

    ETA - Even on SearchingforAnna.com - there are virtually no images apart from the ones that are readily available on the Charley Project site. Why not set up a link (a STICKY) with images of some of the documents found in BFH? Why not find and post (still linked) images that describe the area? Maps? ANYthing visual that is potentially helpful. As I've already stated, I've read through virtually every thread on this forum and have found that for the most part (90 percent) of the image links don't work!

    If you look at Annasmoms profile, she has an album with several photo's of Anna.

    Doogie had the photos at yahoo at one time, and that closed down... and went to where-ever yahoo sent those. I'm unsure of the current link.

    Yosande, I think I have all these pictures and more in my album on the forum. I don't remember whether I captioned them or not, but I'll check on that.

    Yahoo pics became Flickr, so I will need to update the links to the new site. Sorry.

    Thanks for the link. The pics are beautiful and give a sense of her personality.

    annasmom, I can't even begin to fathom how you cope with the not knowing.

    My thoughts are for you.

    I found it!

    Here is the link to the flickr photo album which contains the photos where the above yahoo links are broken.

    (If I had only thought to quote doogies old post to see his yahoo id sooner. :doh: I wasn't adding the f to the end of the user name. )
