    If there is a thread on this I can't find it...

    "Authorities in western Iowa's Pottawatamie County announced today (Friday) that skeletal remains have been found north of Council Bluffs. Officials say the bones were found May 6 in a fifty-five-gallon barrel located in secluded area..."

    hi, many had thought that they were the remains of amber harris or tracy trilbble. It has been ruled out in both cases however, the remains in a park near by have not. I pray that they result in a negotive conclusion for both, but i still wish the families of the unidentified will find their closure... if you can truly lable it as so...

    Apparently, around the area that Tracy Tribble and Jessica o'Grady disappeared from.....

    ****************

    A body has reportedly been found on the Missouri River.

    There is no confirmation of these reports yet, but police are on the scene, near the Veteran's Bridge, investigating.

    There is no word on whether it is the body of missing Council Bluffs woman Tracy Tribble or UNO student Jessica O'Grady.

    We have a crew on the scene and will have more information as it becomes available.

    Ok, according to the Omaha World Herald a body was found near the Veterans Memorial Bridge which "links Council Bluffs and south Omaha". I believe it was found today. Sadly on a separate note, the remains found in Hummel Park were that of Amber Harris (age 12) and her death is being considered a homicide. So now we are waiting on the ID of the bones in the barrel. It is so crazy, sad and upsetting that so much is going on.I posted the following on the Amber Harris thread (Harris kin await word on id of remains):


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    OK, tennessee had inquired if anyone had looked at the photos of those missing in Nebraska listed on my previous post. Here goes (I am including description of the females only because there seems to be some significant similarities between some of the women's physical descriptions):

    Sheila Dawn Thompson age 20 missing since October 2005--caucasian, at time of photo--medium length brown hair, hazel eyes, 5'2, slender build; classified as Endangered Missing

    Lisa Dixon age 19 missing since October 2005--caucasian, at time of photo-- appears to be medium length brown hair, brown eyes, 5'8, slender build; classified as Missing

    Casandra Flynn age 18 missing since June 2005--caucasian, at time of photo--medium length brown hair, hazel eyes, 5'3 larger frame; classified as Missing

    Mary Hoesing age 19 missing since June 2005--caucasian, at time of photo--appears to have long brown hair, blue eyes, 5'6, larger frame; classified as Missing

    Michelle Lee age 22 missing since October 2005--caucasian,at time of photo--medium length brown hair, brown eyes, 5'7 larger frame; classified as Endangered Missing

    Teanna Rock age 18 missing since June 2005--african american, brown hair, brown eyes, 5'4, larger frame; classified as Missing

    Mary Ryan age 46 missing since June 2005--caucasian, at time of photo-short brown hair, brown eyes, 5'2 slender build (she looks very young for her age)

    I am also adding the following individuals missing from NE:

    Mary Howland age 19 missing since November 2003--caucasian, at time of photo short to med length brown hair, hazel eyes, 5'9 larger frame

    Melissa Ann Schmidt 15 missing since September 1995--caucasian, at time of photo long brown hair, brown eyes, 5'4 slender build

    As we all know, many of the missing leave of their own accord but there are some striking similarities --med to long brown hair, brown eyes and similiar age range. Hopefully all are safe and will return soon.

    I can speculate what is going on there. I believe there is perhaps more than one serial killer operating out there. Being a city, I'm sure that there is lots of traffic that flows through there. Perhaps someone is moving through often enough to stay under radar.

    I found this blurb: http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_pg=1636&u_sid=2174154

    "Council Bluffs authorities were investigating the discovery of a body today near the Veteran's Memorial Bridge. The body was found south of the bridge, which links Council Bluffs and south Omaha, according to the police dispatcher. It is not known what time the discovery was made. "

    Since it was three sentences didn't just snip anything.

    Thanks for the info, mysteriew. I was not aware that the remains were fully skeletonized. Can I set up a separate thread for the missing females in Nebraska? Thanks if you can help, I am pretty new to the site.
