    The above posted article says that they don't have very good pictures of her because she had been in the water and the pictures had been taken with a Polaroid. The sheriff also says they have very little evidence.

    I think this is Diana Harris. She was reported missing in july, but too much is matching up. They look similar, and both connected to Trucadero area, AND nails painted, but I don't' see any mention on teeth. Namus has nothing. If you read further on the move from michigan was in end of Feb, body found beginning of March

    Missing Person: Diana Lynn Harris

    Date of Birth: 10-06-1953
    Missing Since: July 15, 1981
    Missing City: No Name Key, Monroe County
    Missing State: Florida
    Age at time of disappearance: 27
    Gender: Female
    Race: White
    Height: 5ft 6in
    Weight: 125 lbs
    Hair Color: Strawberry blonde
    Hair (other): short, natural curl
    Eye Color: Blue
    Complexion: light

    Characteristics: sometimes wore glasses, had full dentures on top or bottom and partials on opposite side, manicured nails-usually painted

    Clothing: no pinks usually, usually blue jeans, sometimes wore turquoise strapless halter top and cut off shorts, dress shirts and t-shirts

    Jewelry: turquoise jewelry, silver

    Circumstances: Diana's daughter last saw her on June 7, 1981 at the Miami airport. Her children were leaving to visit their father. She was last known to live at the end of Tortuga Ln. on No Name Key, Florida, although some sources say she lived at Big Pine Key. The 1995 case files state No Name Key. 1981 case files were destroyed by the Sheriff who held office at that time as told by the the Sheriff in Monroe County today and indicated in the 1995 case files. It is unknown who Diana was last seen with. The family believes her disappearance is linked to Missing Person Tom Stump's case since the same people were questioned in both cases and the same person lived with each when Diana and Tom disappeared even though it the disappearances were 14 years apart.

    I am not willing to discount Diana Harris- but beside the date issue we also have an age issue and the tattoo. It seems like a fairly visible tattoo that Jane Doe had and there is no mention of one on Diana Harris. The dentals are also a big deal-- but these cases (their paperwork anyway) seem to have been neglected or mishandled so who knows.

    Namus UP #7915 for this Glades Jane Doe
    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/7915


    Interestingly, Namus and Charley Project differ in the age range for this doe. Namus is 25-25 and Charley Project says late teens to early 20s.


    Glades Doe was also found wearing jeans, a tank top and fleece lined ankle boots. I wonder if she was not from this area of FL. Fleece lined ankle boots seem out of place in Florida.

    Might be useful to look in the Buckskin Girl thread (OH). Buckskin girl has almost the exact same stats for height, weight, hair color, age, etc. And they were found within 1 month of each other. So likely anyone we have considered over the years for BG might be worth a look for this girl as well.

    They finally replaced the crummy facial recon that they had for this Jane Doe.

    I just saw this newly listed missing person in Charley Project:

    Angela Joann DeLawder

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/d/delawder_angela.html

    There are some discrepancies, such as age, eye color, and she is a little taller than the Jane Doe.

    But the Date LKA is spot-on to the estimated date of death for this Jane Doe, and the resemblance is pretty solid too.
