    I couldn't find any info on Emma really except this listing in an old missing persons site(its now closed but the pages are still visible)

    It says Emma may be in the company of her half-sister Rhonda Cannon , which is weird. I checked and her sister is not listed as missing.............

    Heres the site http://www.angelfire.com/mi3/mpccn/vaughn.html

    This is her Doe Network entry. OBT(Orange Blossom Trail) is notorious for prostitution and drugs- over 70% of county 911 calls are for a 4 mile area of OBT. If she were around that area... keeping her trade, she would have had contact with the authorities already. The police in that area are always arresting people. There is a reward.

    It sounds like Emma might have run into trouble with one of her customers. It really makes me sad -- that she was in that life, and she was so young. I mean, no one should be a prostitute but especially not a fourteen-year-old.

    # Unidentified White Female Located on July 10, 1991 in El Dorado, Union County, Arkansas.
    # The victim died the same day that she was discovered.

    Vital Statistics

    * Estimated age: 18 - 21 years old
    * Approximate Height and Weight: 5'11"; 150-160 lbs.
    * Distinguishing Characteristics: She had brown hair at the time of her death; however, it had been previously dyed blonde, as the photos above attest. She had blue eyes. She had a small birthmark or scar beneath her left breast; she also had freckles.
    * Dentals: Available
    * Fingerprints: Available
    * DNA: Available
    * AKA: Cheryl Ann Wick, Shannon Wiley, Kelly Carr, Mercedes

    *****************
    Possible match?
    1. If you put the photos of Emma and Jane Doe side by side there is a very strong match, especially in the nose and the chin area.
    2. Jane Doe is estimated to be 18-21, Emma would have been 24 - one of Jane Doe's multiple ID's said she was 24.
    3. Emma is listed as 5'3", Jane Doe is 5'11", this is a huge discrepancy but when you think that Emma disappeared when she was 14 it is possible she was actually taller than 5'3 and grew a little more during her teenage years?
    4. Jane Doe told people she was originally from Florida, Emma is from Florida.
    5. The scars/birthmarks don't match up in the descriptions but Jane Doe was frequently beaten and in the Emergency Room. Could she have had plastic surgury to cover the injuries/marks? (this is wild speculation on my part).
    6. Both Emma and Jane Doe were prostitutes.
    7. Bothe Emma and Jane Doe had brown hair and blue eyes.

    This is another possible match as it matches the height more. This Jane Doe might have been a prostitute. She was in New York. Her hair was light (or reddish) and Emma's seems to be brown-reddish in the photos. When you do side by side photo comparisons it kinda matches to the sketch but the nose is wrong and it throws it all off... I don't think its a match but still putting out the possibility

    This month marks the 25th year since Emma Lorene Vaughn disappeared.

    I have often wondered if she might be the unidentified girl known as Blairstown Princess Doe. I was told that a dental comparison ruled it out, however.

    There was a Jane Doe found off I-59 in December 1988 whose sketches are similar to Emma. I-59 Jane Doe was taller than Emma, but since Emma was a young teen she could have grown more after disappearing. Additionally, where Jane Doe was found was near a truck stop, and only about 15 minutes from the GA/TN state line.

    I'm sorry I don't have what it takes to look at Doe Network this morning, but if someone searches threads started by me here, there's a link to my Jane Doe's page in a thread I started on her. If anyone wants to compare.

    Nice pictures of Emma here. Very clear.

    Article above is a news brief that I can't snip from without violating TOS because it is so short. There was a canine unit searching the area that a courthouse had been built upon a year prior to 2003. The search was about Emma.

    Archived article for her sister-in-law that posts here in case she doesn't have the article themselves and wants to have them. (linked below, very short bio with a picture of Emma)

    Those are rumors which might not be true, according to a family member who posted here a few years back.

    Unfortunately, not much is really known for certain about the circumstancess surrounding the disappearance of this little girl.

    This coming July will mark 30 years since Emma went missing. Perhaps there will be an anniversary article in the media.
