    Barbara Bruno's clothes are the same style as the Jane Doe's clothes and they said she might of went to California which is in the right direction.

    I wish there was a better photo.

    The stats do fit, but generally the 18-22 age estimate is likely accurate, with the possibility of the UID being a bit younger or older.

    I don't see her in the 1979 Chelmsford HS yearbook.

    "
    Yeah, that appears to be the case.

    Chelmsford is a small town on major commuter routes. It has a fair amount of apartments and rental housing, popular with young professionals and students, mostly from out of the area. Even if she was living in Chelmsford, she could be from anywhere.

    CarlK, other towns you might want to check are Westford, Lowell, Carlisle, Tewksbury, Tyngsboro, Nashoba, Littleton...

    There's also a college in Lowell. In 1981 I think it would have been the University of Lowell. It's part of the UMass system now but it wasn't then. At the time it had a lot of evening/commuter students.

    I wonder if she worked in the high tech industry. That was booming in 1980-81.

    I was thinking she was either estranged from her family or was originally from outside the US, since it seems as though she wasn't reported missing. (I don't see anyone who looks close on Namus, Doe, etc.)

    ETA: actually, I think Deborah Diane Owens resembles the girl in the photo, but that might just be the hair: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/o/owens_deborah.html

    Just because she's not in national databases doesn't mean she wasn't reported. Even today very few MA missing people are uploaded unless there's reason to think the person left the area. I'm not defending them; that's just the reality. Even if family reported her missing the odds are local LE just wrote down the information, told them she was an adult and could leave if she wanted, and tossed the report in a file drawer.

    Also, mobility at the time was extremely high. If somebody didn't show up for work and somebody else said, "I think she got a job in CA," nobody would have blinked.

    I spent last night staring at an image of "Lisa Joy White" missing from Connecticut in 1974. I did my head in and had to step away from the laptop. Back and forth on that photo and then the computer generated image of this doe. I started losing it. I still think there is something there or i have an overactive imagination. (more likely the case)

    I think she's going to be another that has not been reported missing due to being classified a "runaway" or adult that walked away. I could be wrong; not that familiar with the case. Has anyone dropped the image in google? I'm not gonna be near a computer today
