    There is very little information on this case. Although the date specified below is 1 January 1969, that is not confirmed in the case information. It may be the last time that Patricia's family saw her, and that other details have become lost.

    She would be a heck of a long way from home it's over 5000 km from Vancouver BC to Provincetown, Barnstable County, Massachusetts but I guess you never know.

    I just came across that doe link and thought sounds so much like her, I'm glad someone else pointed it out. Did you ever call it in?

    Unidentified
    5'7
    140-150 pounds
    long light brown hair
    Age: early 20's

    Patricia Diane French
    5'7
    130
    *Blond hair (Although the picture shown makes her hair look light brown)
    Age: 18

    Not only is it eerie typing the locations into goggle maps, but it leads right to Calgary. She probably took HWY #1 which goes right past the body and into Calgary.

    I wish I could display the map but my computer is acting funny.

    The problem with this jane doe being Patricia is that five years had elapsed since Patricia went missing. The Jane Doe story does mention that she had been there for a while and was in a state of advanced decomposition. But I think that the remains would have been skeletal if it was Patricia.

    I wonder if Patricia's disappearance might be related to the following Cold Case involving an unidentified girl referred to as Lompoc Jane Doe...

    Another girl from British Colombia was murdered in the same general area only a few weeks earlier - probably by John Norman Collins of Michigan.

    ----------------------------------------


    Unidentified White Female
    Located on August 3, 1969 near a quarry on Highway 1, south of Lompoc, Santa Barbara County, California.
    The victim died from multiple stab wounds and a slit throat.

    Vital Statistics

    Estimated age: 16 - 25 years old
    Approximate Height and Weight: 5'4"; 125 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Shoulder-length brown hair dyed a reddish blonde; blue eyes. She had pierced ears.
    Dentals: Available. She had current dental work and "buck teeth". 19 fillings done within the year or two preceding her death. Based on her dental work, investigators surmised that she may have come from abroad.
    Clothing: She was wearing sandals with a gold colored buckle, a blue blouse and what appeared to be homemade white pants decorated with a blue floral print, they were hip hugger bell bottons. The clothing appeared consistent with that worn by youth during this time period. She wore horseshoe shaped gold earrings.
    Fingerprints: Available. (Poor quality)
    Pants Daisy Pattern and Victim's Bucked Teeth

    Case History
    The victim lay a few feet down an embankment, her body dragged there across dust and scrub brush and dumped behind a cluster of rocks within sight of old Highway 1.
    Investigators believe she was killed there. She was stabbed numerous times.
