    The area code and exchange for the OPP number is right where I live. I think I might give them a call.

    I would have thought SOME submissions may have been made even if they didn't pan out. I wonder if it's because there is an international component to it?

    This thought has always been in the back of my mind, but has been especially nagging at me in the light of recent developments in the Bear Brook case. I can’t explain anything other than the resemblance and possible explanation of why no one has come forward to claim this gentleman...

    The girl in the photo looks so very much like the unidentified child of Rasmussen found in the barrel in Allenstown, NH.

    Sometimes the exclusions are there but the list isn't marked for the public to see.

    More often the list isn't maintained, either because the investigating agency is too busy or just doesn't care.

    So do police forces find our tips more of an annoyance when we resurrect interest in an old case? I understand that old cases are probably low on their list of priorities but a good lead is a good lead.

    It varies. If you look at the cases that have activity and are getting ruleouts, releasing reconstructions, using new technology, and so on, that's probably an agency that's interested in new tips. Medical examiners' offices handling UID cases tend to be more responsive than LE agencies, who are often overwhelmed with everyday work. And in any agency there are detectives who are interested, won't let go, work on their own time, etc.

    In this particular case I'm guessing they just don't have a lot to go on. Speculation about maybe this or that isn't really something they can follow up on and investigate.

    Late to the party, but checking the child's picture on Doe Network -- in the center image, the 'close-up,' it looks like possibly a lower front tooth is missing.

    I know the pic is splotchy, but most North American children loose their first tooth between the 5th & 7th birthdays.

    Hope this gentleman is identified!

    I looked at this again recently, and I did find who Pam's parents were. Her father is definitely not this UID, so I can rule out the UID being Pam's father/the girl in the picture's maternal grandfather. Can't find anything on Dwight's parents, though, so it's still possible that, perhaps, Pam could have been writing to her father-in-law?

    I did find a yearbook picture of the person who I think could be the child in the photo, but I would need to ask for permission first to post it. I still think her facial features are pretty similar, but it would be interesting to see what you all think about it.

    The best course would probably be to contact the UID's Namus people or LE contact with your information.

    Yes, I agree. I've tried contacting the Fulton County ME before, back in December, but never got a response. I'm guessing it's partly because I sounded a bit crazy, and partly because it was around Christmas time.

    I thought she looks like Gracie Reapp, missing from VT.

    She does, but Gracie's chin is a lot pointier.

    Her obit says her father survived her date of death. Jim Brown of Johnston City, IL. With such a common name it's possible that there are more than one James (Jim) Brown.

    It's kind of shocking how many of the family died at such a young age. Children, grandchildren, even the parents aren't old.
