    She sure does look like her; the only difference is her hair color and the fact that she would have been slightly older by 1968. I hope they look into it.

    This case breaks my heart. I do not know how to find any missing toddlers from that time frame. Likely, she was never reported missing. Going to see if I can find anything today.

    I was sent a pm photo of this little girl, and asked to do a reconstruction.

    Here is my estimation of what she looked like in life.

    The photos don't give any hint of her hair length or style, so the dual pigtails are my artistic license.

    You've been working so hard! What an adorable little girl. She looks so different from the NCMEC composite, much more lifelike. Poor, sweet baby girl!

    Wow, Carl, this portrait is amazing. I think pigtails are realistic for a girl with long blonde hair in that era--even if it's not her regular hairstyle, it's likely she wore them at least some of the time.

    It's about 30 miles downriver from Clark Bridge, where the little girl was found, to the Jefferson Barracks Bridge, where the adult woman was found. Forty miles or so by any of several highway routes.

    The girl is estimated to have died about a month before she was found in Feb. 1968, which would put her death in January 1968. The adult woman was found in May 1968, but her date of death is also estimated as "Estimated Date of Death: From January 1, 1968." So that fits.

    You'd think they would have checked.

    Interesting that both bodies were weighted down.
