    Richard, do you have any more specifics on Diane's case? I remember the name but I don't remember very many details and there is not much available on the web. Did anyone ever conclusively rule in/out the Princess Doe connection? It seems to me that I saw Diane's case featured on TV some time ago, maybe Unsolved Mysteries, I'm not sure though.

    I read somewhere that Diane was supposed to have run off from home because her parents were having marriage problems and that a friend bumped into her at a mall and Diane was supposed to have told the friend she didn't particulary want her parents knowing she was still in the area. How true this is, I don't know...

    While the story may have some truth in it, Diane was only 13 years old at the time, and hardly of an age to fend for herself and make such decisions. The fact that it has been 26 years since her disappearance would lead most to believe that some foul play took place.

    Diane Dye was ruled out as Princess Doe (from Blairstown, NJ) via DNA. I have confirmed this with local LE.

    I happened upon this today and this young girl has an uncanny resemblance to the young girl found in the NY cornfield in Nov 1979. I've notified both authorities so that they can confirm or rule out. Prayers for closure. Truly sad. Here is the young girl found shot to death that looks very similar.

    I have always felt with Diane that there actually may be a chance (albeit a slight chance) she is alive and does not want to be found.

    I think she could have gone into prostitution to support herself and got mixed up with drugs, the wrong pimp, etc. In that world a person can disappear and no one notices, cares or is too afraid to do anything out of fear for their own situation. A pimp can get away with murder pretty easily - so can a serial killer.

    I saw Diane Dye mentioned on another thread and had a good feeling that she could be alive still. I checked knowx and found a Diane G. Dye marriage record in Cali. Im going to search intellus and see if she's the same age.

    Found the husband on the marriage record, he's 47 so its possible. Couldnt find her or a divorce record.

    What would really help in these situations?? If we had a parent name so we could reference on people search sites that way. I have actually seen a missing person listed under their mom with a different last name before after all those years.

    Will keep searching, the curcimstances regarding her disappearance and then sighting almost 2 years later really makes me think that there is a good probability that she is alive.

    That and the fact she seemed to leave on her own makes me think the same.
