GA GA - Gloria Baird, 23, Atlanta, Dec 1969

I think this is the 71 case they are talking about. I think Gloria Baird was looked at as a possible person, but we have DNA in CODIS now. She needs to get her DNA submitted just in case there is a match out there somewhere. I think the height is off, and I think our Jane Doe had brown eyes.

Please call if you need any help - George Loydgren is the detective on this case. We would love to put a name to our girl. You can email also if you don't feel comfortable calling. Gloydgren@hernandosheriff.org. I think it is on the flyer too.

That is wonderful that you have your DNA in CODIS. More and more agencies are putting the UID in CODIS. It is very expensive for some to get the DNA from remains and submit them, but in FL we have USF and they help us with this. So hopefully if she is out there somewhere, it will happen. I also know that the search for matches is a process as it cycles over and over. This way new submissions are always looked at, but it takes time.
 
Hey there, thanks for checking in. I hope things are going well for you otherwise.

One of these days we will find her. Maybe this year is the year.
Thank you. I am doing well. Getting a bit older since I first joined this group. I am so grateful for you all who spend your time helping me and others with lost loved ones. It would be nice to know the truth behind her disappearance before I get too much older. The truth will show itself one day.

Yes. I was fortunate to have a medical examiner help me get my local police department involved so that I could create a missing person's report done (once I learned no one had ever taken the time to do that - don't get me started), and to get my DNA into CODIS. :)
 
Mysterious WV just uploaded a video on youtube about:

The Rawley Springs Jane Doe

I Googled a bit on missing women in the 1960's and found Gloria Jean Baird on the Charley project Gloria Jean Baird – The Charley Project.

When you search for:
ROCKINGHAM COUNTY JANE DOE: WF, 20-28, found near Rawley Springs, VA - 14 November 1980

on: crimewatchers net forum(the link doesn't work)
When I look at the list of missing women that were excluded regarding the The Rawley Springs Jane Doe, I do not see Gloria as being excluded.
The date's, age and having given birth could fit. There are 3 different facial reconstructions/drawings and they all look different so I don't know how accurate they are.

I have not read everything about Gloria yet, so I apologize if this has already been discussed. But I felt like I had to post this. Especially after I read (in post #5) she was in contact with someone (Buster) from Norfolk, Virginia.

Thank you DutchTreat! I have seen this possibility before. I haven't ruled out Buster. All of the stats match between the Jane Doe and Gloria. I will reach out to see if they could double check my DNA to this Jane Doe. I would think they would have already tried to match the two since I am in CODIS, but I will find out.

I see Gloria's mouth in the pencil drawing, her jaw in the black and white reconstruction and the cheeks in the last reconstruction.

It is eerie isn't it. All the data fits. Do you know IF they actually did check the DNA?
 
If Gloria's father was a dentist, are there any dental records of her?
Those could be compared to this Jane Doe as well? This Jane Doe had dental work done.
 
Looking in the Doe Network The Doe Network: Case File 231UFGA I took your mother's pic and put beside Jane Doe and they look so much alike. Her skull was found in McDonough, Henry County, Georgia in 1973. Has your DNA been checked with hers?

It's worth sending in. Nobody has apparently been ruled out as the Jane Doe, according to NamUs.
