    Sarah Tokier may have had family that lived in close proximity to where shotgun Jane Doe was shot in TN. I have found records that lead me to believe this but I can not post them here because those records name innocent Tokier family members. Tokier is an unusual last name and there are not very many in the U.S. even to this day.

    It is my belief that Sara Tokier has a twin brother.

    There is an 11 year gap between when Sarah Tokier reportedly went missing and when Shotgun Jane Doe was found. I do concede that this is a very large gap in time for Tokier to have been missing, and off the radar so to speak, but it also does not seem as if anybody was searching too hard for her. I can find no articles or press releases that would lead me to believe that her family (or anybody else for that matter) was actively searching for Tokier. Perhaps they did search diligently and records of those efforts are simply not available online because it was so long ago. Regardless, I can find no evidence (on the internet) of searches that were done for Sarah Tokier or articles that show searches having been done. I plan to contact Television Stations, Radio Stations and newspapers (Where she is reported to have disappeared from in CA) that were in business at the time of Sarah Tokiers (approximate) disappearance in an attempt to discern if there were any notices broadcast or searches announced in the above types of media at any time since Tokier's disappearance. If anything comes of these efforts I will pay for the archives and post them here, with permission from their authors, of course.

    I have found articles and video online about Detectives searching for Shotgun Jane Doe's identity.

    All of the above is only my own opinion.

    Sarah's parents divorced & remarried then divorced again. I looked them up on a family tree site. I think that the family dynamics had a lot to do with no one knowing what was up because they probably didn't all live together.

    Abraham Tokier is her twin brother's name. He was a cop. You can google him; he comes up with a PI agency now IIRC
    Sarah R Tokier event: Birth event date: 10 Jun 1960
    Abraham M Tokier event: Birth event date: 10 Jun 1960

    rest of the search

    *Added to a UP post figured I'd copy here too

    I was checking SJD's new rule outs with the update this morning; now at 220. Sarah did not make the list. I looked at Sarah's NamUs; it said DNA Status: Sample submitted - Tests complete which I do not remember being there until my notation Feb 15th.

    I then checked this post; DNA was in CODIS- so it may already be a rule out

    Sarah was submitted by someone not on WS January 4, 2013
    Email sent to Doe network- March 7, 2013
    From: Rocky Wells
    Subject: Re: Email of possible match

    Hello xxx,

    I can tell you that this passed our panel and was submitted to Law Enforcement. To date I have not received a reply from them.

    This is troubling,check out this story about her Twin Brother-

    EDIT: The link wouldn't post. Anyhow, her twin Brother, a cop,was arrested for domestic abuse & kidnapping. You can google his name.I don't want to post his name here.

    Wow - I sincerely hope that there aren't human remains buried in your hard but if they are then they're someone's family and there's likely someone somewhere waiting for them to come home. Call the police ASAP and keep us updated if possible!!

    So where exactly was Sarah Tokier last seen before she disappeared?

    There is a Montebello in Los Angeles County. Is there another Montebello in San Bernardino County?

    A smaller community maybe that is harder to find on the map?

    According to one site, it looks like Sarah went to school in La Puente, CA, Which seems to be closer to Montebello in Los Angeles County, but I gather her family was from San Bernadino County.

    Is that correct?

    Sarah apparently went to La Puente High School while her twin brother was going to San Gabriel High School about 10 miles away. The schools are listed as public schools. This is all in Los Angeles County.

    Montebello appears to be nearby. Maybe 5 miles from SGHS and about 10 miles from LPHS. Of course, it depends where you choose as your starting point, but it sounds like they were more likely living in LA County at the time, not San Bernadino County.

    But if this is correct, why would most of the missing person notices refer to San Bernadino County?

    One might be inclined to guess that the family was living somewhere roughly between the two schools. Or were the kids living away from their folks at the time? Were there any older or younger siblings? If so, where did they go to school?

    All this raises another question: if the kids were living with their folks, why was the date of Sarah's disappearance not more given with precision?

    My understanding was that the dates given in the missing person's notices were approximate. There was even a discrepancy about the year, if you compare the Doe Network notice to the others. How does that happen? I am pretty sure if my kid or my young sibling went missing, I would be able to supply a reasonably precise date--unless the child had been separated from the family for some reason.

    See my post #6. I feel that her brother most likely became a cop because she went missing, LE most likely refused a report back then because 99% of the time felt that teens ran away

    Hi Roselvr,

    Thanks for pointing that out. I just took another look at your "rest of the search" link. I don't recall if I checked it out before, but it does suggest a bit of a time line for the Tokier family.

    It looks like the parents Dorothy and Morris were married in 1963. They must have divorced, as you said, then the mother Dorothy must have remarried a man named West, whom she subsequently divorced. Then in 1974, she remarried Morris. Interestingly, her name seems to have been Ricketts, Jones, West and Tokier.

    The twins were born in 1960, but it looks like there was another daughter named Rebecca who was born in 1959, when the mother went by the name Jones.

    So, possibly Dorothy and Morris Tokier were still together in 1976/77, but perhaps not. Who knows.

    What is most interesting is that there was an older sibling named Rebecca. She was a bit more than a year older. Where was she when all this happened? Did she go to a nearby school?
