I mentioned these remains on Tammie’s thread, she disappeared in 1984 about 90 miles away. The Missouri River connects the two cities but that’s the extent of my knowledge on the subject. :D

We are on the case. Working with SEMO Anthropology:

Crowdfunding now to fund the casework. Updates to come.
Great to hear! Best of luck.
 
Help us fund this case and share the case with others! We are giving away free Othram pins to folks that contribute $25 or more to this case so we can get it to the finish line!

 
I wonder where her remains apparently where all that time..washed up from a shallow grave somewhere? Could she possibly be a drowning victim whose remains never turned up back in the day? That happened in the case of the vast majority of remains found in Lake Mead in Nevada last year, although in that case it was drought, not flooding that turned up the remains of known drowning victims whose bodies were never recovered.
