    Amy has DNA entered according to NamUs, as does Jane Doe. She should be an automatic comparison but I'm still hesitant to state that as an absolute without knowing which kind of DNA each woman has entered. I believe if Jane has both types, and Amy only has a single type, it still will trigger a potential match, just not a positive match.

    Amy has been missing for 24 years today.

    I just have to wonder about the body that was found in Hillsborough in September 1990. I know it was a few months before Danielle supposedly disappeared, but given that the missing persons report wasn't accepted right away, is it possible that the dates got confused in the report? Danielle is not listed in namus as a rule-out for this UID and that exit in Hillsborough is not far down I-40/85 from Greensboro. Just seems like such a coincidence that she disappeared the same year that this UID was found, and the UID sketch looks a lot like Danielle's age progression, which leads me to believe that the underlying bone structure must have been similar.

    Investigators estimate that the UID is between 15 and 25 years old. She was wearing a shirt with bunnies on it, which suggests to me that she was closer to 15 than 25.

    Here's an article originally published on 1/10/1994 that mentions the Hillsborough UID, written in 1994; it also discusses a number of other cases:http://www.fayobserver.com/news/loc...cle_ec46f363-b283-569e-9b0a-5b123e82787f.html

    Below is some information about her disappearance from an article (snipped to avoid violating copyright) in the Greensboro Record on December 5, 1992. Apparently it was very strongly suspected that she was voluntarily missing (I think that was misguided, but hindsight is 20/20). I wonder if the boyfriend was a suspect.

    I see Amy hasn't been excluded. .I know the dates SEEM wrong, but I wonder if she had been missing for longer than what the parents stated. She had run off before but had been found quickly in those cases. Maybe the parents put off reporting her because they figured it would turn out the same as before? Has anyone suggested this this UID to LE?

    She left "to walk up the street"- what's that supposed to mean? Surely there's more to it than that.

    I agree -- especially if you google map the location. There is nothing up the street -- it's a semi-rural area, even now. There is, however, a main road leading to I-40 nearby.

    Okay, let me preface this by saying that I am married to one of Amy's cousins and know her mother and siblings well. Her mother did not put off reporting Amy missing. While I don't know for certain, it's entirely plausible that she was walking to a nearby gas station, or to a neighborhood friend's house. I personally believe Amy is dead, but I don't know that for 100% obviously. I do know that she and a neighbor girl were fighting and the night before Amy vanished, she had snuck into the other girl's bedroom while she was asleep and cut off all her hair. This girl is/was Lumbee Indian and had several siblings who could've been involved in her murder. Amy's mother has received anonymous phone calls saying Amy is in the lake close to the back of her house. Amy's mom lives in the same house, she still puts out a stocking for her every Christmas. Wherever Amy is, dead or alive, I hope she's found one day to give her family the closure they need and deserve.

    Welcome Tedophile!! Thanks for your post.

    Has her family ruled out, in their own minds, the girl (listed as being between 15 and 25) who was found down I-40 in Hillsborough? As I've said above, the body was found a few months before the date we are given for Amy's disappearance, but I have always wondered if there was a mix-up in one report or the other. It just seems too closeby and other than the dates too good a match not to at least give it a good look. Of course, it's possible that it's been given a very close look and it's been determined not to be a match. What a sad story. I'm so sorry for her family -- it must be so hard not knowing.

    Was the lake behind her mother's house ever checked? It seems the answer would be yes, however, I had to ask?

    Did the police ever get any answers or feelings from the siblings or the girl who got her hair cut off? That definitely would be the first place ti look and be a motive.

    I am sure the heartbreak for all these years has taken a toll on the whole family. My heart goes out to each of you.

    The lake was checked, but not well. He mother has requested it be checked again, but the police refuse to "waste resources." As for the neighbor girl, she was never questioned.

    I honestly do not know. I will ask my hubby his thoughts and if he's unsure also, I will try to broach the topic with Kathy, Amy's mom, the next time I speak with her.
