    Thinking of Susan, it's almost 34 years since she went missing.

    According to Charley Project, Susan's boyfriend witnessed her getting into a van outside a convenience store. So, presumably, the two had gone to the store together. Why would Susan then leave with someone else? Did the two have an argument there? Or was there something else going on?

    Did she know the van driver, or did she just take off with whoever was there and agreed to give her a ride?

    Next month will be the 40th anniversary of the disappearance of Susan Earls.

    The latest news clipping I could find dates back to 1992

    I already submitted a Jane Doe that had similar clothing as Susan when found. It's gonna take awhile to get results.

    Do you have a link to the namus or doe network pages of JD you submitted? There are so many unidentified white females in Florida from the 70's and 80's.

    (NamUsUP #1276) https://identifyus.org/en/cases/1276 NO Rule outs yet.

    Like I explained to the manager:

    Why do I think they're a match?


    - When Susan went missing she had a LSW GAUCHO TYPE BLUE JEAN/ORANGE SHIRT AND WHITE (Quoting her namus report) this jane doe had A blue and orange stripped long sleeve shirt anda 32-36 "Maidenform" bra.
    which the Color of shirt has ALSO been described as green and orange.

    - The Jane doe was found in 1982, but she could've died earlier since she was decomposing already. Susan only went missing in 1977.

    -Susan was 18 years old when she went missing. Jane doe had a maximum estimated age of 20. (Same age range)

    - Jane doe was found floating in a canal in 70000 NW 16th Terrace in Broward county. Susan went missing from Forest City last seen getting into a van towards Lake Road which is almost a straight route into terrace. (3 hour drive... according to google maps)

    - Similar face/nose structure.

    I do think they look similar. The casting recreation of JD has a very upturned nose, which I don't see in Susan, but the probably newer sketches, it doesn't look at pronounced.

    There are some rule outs that I see, but none are Susan.

    JD has an estimated death of two weeks before she was found in 1982. It could be off, it could be Susan was alive/held onto for a few years, so it doesn't rule anything out, but interesting to know..

    Some things that would be nice to know to help match: if JD had pierced ears and if Susan had any type of back injury. JD has a 'healed healed fracture in one vertebrae in the back'. Not sure what kind of injury that might be.

    The problem is that Susan does not have any dentals, DNA or fingerprints entered, so it might be difficult to match.

    Yeah, it's gonna take a long time to rule this one out due to the lack of DNA. I'm still hopeful

    Circumstances:
    Susan was last seen shortly after midnight Friday October 21st, 1977 at Forest City Road and Lake Road outside a convenience store. She was seen by her boyfriend getting into a white van that sped away into the right turning lane on Forest City Road heading east towards Eatonville on Lake Road.

    The boyfriend stated he does not know why she got into the vehicle.

    LE ruled out any chance that Susan ran away from home because of what her friends and family had told them.

    The niece posted a petition in 2016 to keep Susan’s case alive, within her posts she mentioned that there were variations of the disappearance of Susan. In reviewing courts records neither of the individuals mentioned appear to be stellar upstanding pillars of the community.

    I recall that I submitted a Jane Doe for this case a few weeks before being hit by Hurricane Maria. I can't see the rules out on the Jane Doe anymore.

    There were (3) rule outs (2) were UID's in VA and from all accounts are a systematic issue within NAMUS as that they have appeared on nearly every MP in NAMUS I've looked at recently. The third is UID OH Belle in the Well UP6259, I'm not sure how NAmUS could compare Susan to any UID's as that she does not any identifiers unless they were able to obtain but have not made it visible pubilicly.

    Is it possible that Susan could be UP1211? There are some resemblances, and I haven't seen Susan on the R/O list for UP1211, but the time between Susan's DOLC and UID's discovery is pretty long (although, UID was skeletal remains and I haven't seen a real estimate for years of death)
