The Doe Network has a new listing for Valerie Ann Larkin. She went missing in 1985. It is classified as voluntary missing. She was 38 at the time. http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1812dfca.html There is a bellydancer who is quite celebrated. Based in Dublin, she has travelled to many countries dancing (she never mentions the U.S. specifically). She claims to have gotten her dance instructor accredidation in 1982 and the photo below was taken in 2005 ... its possible she is the missing 58 year old Valerie??? I read a whole bunch of articles about the dancer and they don't mention her age (although they do mention that she began to lose her eyesight around 1992). One more reason why I think its possible.... They are both petite (Valerie the dancer is a size 8) Valerie the missing is " Female of unknown race", which I found odd as she looks caucasian... maybe this was noted because the missing Valerie had an accent... maybe an Irish accent? To read more (and more photos) of Valerie Larkin from Dublin go to: http://www.ncbi.ie/news/artical_viewer.php?issue_id=7-2&artical_id=42 or her personal site: http://www.bellydanceireland.com/ (text and photos appear to be from 1995-2000) Photo taken of the dancer Valerie in April 2005: <<< photo taken of the missing Valerie Ann Larkin <<< File photo of the dancer I'm wondering if I should send an email to the dancer asking if she was ever in the States in 1985? What do you guys think? Do you think its possible its her?
