    Hello there, everyone! As a member of Redgrave Research Forensic Services, we are extraordinarily proud to have had the privilege of being the genealogists to have worked on Alisha’s case and return her name. Everyone who worked with Alisha treated her with the utmost respect, care, and love throughout our research. Looking at her and her mother's photos is a surreal experience... but I have had nights where I look and weep for them. The events that befell Alisha and Gwendolyn are a tragedy. These two had their lives cut short, one of them before they truly began to even experience life.

    We extend our sincerest thoughts and condolences to their family, as well the community of Pascagoula, Mississippi, to have honored Alisha’s legacy and keeping her in their care the decades since her discovery. The Jackson County Sheriff's Department has exhausted so many efforts over the years to uncover who she was, and today's news hopefully can bring some closure to those who have worked on the case in previous years.

    Sadly, also would like to state that Gwendolyn, Alisha's mother, remains a missing person and has not yet been recovered. We must continue to look for her so that she can be reunited with her family, just as her daughter. Gwendolyn went missing from Kansas City, Missouri on November 24th, 1982. She was 23 years old; standing at an estimated 5’2” to 5’8”, weighing 105 to 135 pounds, with hazel eyes and strawberry blonde hair. Anyone with any information about her disappearance should contact the Jackson County Sheriff's Office at (228) 769-3024.

    I was also apart of the genealogy team and am the personal caretaker for Alisha’s gravesite. Thank you everyone for keeping her in your hearts over these many years.

    Alisha's biological father apparently passed away just days before the family found out. According to a relatives FB post.

    RIP Alisha. Hopefully one day we'll be able to bring your mother home as well.

    At last, Baby Jane has her name. Our names are the one true identity marker belonging only to us. After all is said and done, even after we leave this earth, our names remain. I’m so impressed with the professional members posting in this thread. I feel honored to witness the excitement and pride revealed in your bittersweet announcements. I want to say so much to y’all. Words fail me at the moment...

    Link to press conference in case anyone missed it:

    Her little pic from the 80’s with the classic yellow tint. It’s making me feel all kinds of emotions. Darn.....

    I thought she'd never be identified. Every unidentified now has hope.

    Her Mom is still a MP. I sadly think her body was washed into the Gulf of Mexico. Will Alisha's body be returned to Missouri?
