Had a little trouble emailing the submission, so I looked up their facebook page and messaged them. The wrote me back and asked me to call an investigator in the coroner office. I did and she hadn't heard of this girl and thought it was promising enough that she already (before I called) to gather more information from the Fort Lauderdale Police. Will keep you posted..

Got a response, UID not Sophie Reeder..
Subject: Jane Doe #62 "Brazil" has been identified



Good afternoon all,



I would like to inform you that the Los Angeles Medical Examiner-Coroner has positively identified Jane Doe #62 as Ranata, a 14-year-old girl missing out of Compton, CA since May 2018.

Since Ranata’s death on 8/5/18, the Identifications Section reviewed over 30 missing person reports from 20 law enforcement agencies in 7 states. We also contacted several programs that work with sexually exploited minors, multiple county children and family services departments in two states, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. In mid-October 2018 I received Ranata as a possible missing person match from California DOJ and met with her father a week later. DNA results confirming her identification were received on 12/7/18.



I want to thank all of you for assisting me with Ranata’s identification. I appreciate all of you taking the time to help me by viewing our Jane Doe’s photos, producing artist renderings, reviewing your reports and files, contacting family members and reporting parties, obtaining dental x-rays, and additional actions that are too numerous to name.

Callahan Walsh hosts an hour-long special spotlighting missing persons cases with IN PURSUIT: THE MISSING.

Callahan travels across the state to Ft. Lauderdale and immerses himself in the 2017 missing persons case of then 15-year-old Sophie Reeder, who snuck out from her father's home in the late evening hours on Friday, May 19. When his investigation takes a turn into the shadowy world of the dark web, Callahan takes a deeper dive into the epidemic of human trafficking, and uncovers clues that Sophie might have fallen in the hands of those who perhaps groomed and targeted her.

few clues are left behind, leaving Callahan to conduct boots-on-the-ground investigations into these disappearances. Speaking with law enforcement and the victim's family to understand the circumstances surrounding the fateful day they were last seen, Callahan works to reveal any leads or information that have been unearthed since they've been gone and asks viewers to call if they have information on the cases.

"I went into her room. I saw a candle burning and her computer on her bed, but she wasn't in her bedroom," Patrick Reeder, Sophie's dad, says in a new episode of an Investigation Discovery show called In Pursuit: The Missing. The one-hour episode, which is bringing renewed attention to Reeder's disappearance, will be available to stream on discovery+ this Sunday, March 7, and will air on the Investigation Discovery channel on Monday, March 8, at 9 p.m.

Sophie, who was 15 years old at the time of her disappearance, left home in the early hours of May 20, 2017. She was captured on security-camera footage walking along West Davie Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale with her headphones on. She hasn't been reported seen since.

In a teaser for the show, her father tells host Callahan Walsh that Sophie had a calendar on a wall in her bedroom with May 19 X'd out. That seems to be one of the only clues the teen left behind.

A Fort Lauderdale police detective told WSVN-TV (Channel 7) last year that Sophie had visited "sugar daddy" websites and might have been in contact with older men.

"The grim reality is she could be in a very dark situation right now, which is why we're hoping for any tips or any leads that could get us information so that we could locate her safely," Fort Lauderdale police detective Jennifer Saint-Jean told Channel 7 in October.
