Please click on link for details of this female.
Estimated age is off a little, but couldn't help but notice the hair pulled back. Height and weight are good. This young woman went missing two years before UID found. Possible??
Susie, I think that's a pretty good match you found. Hopefully you've already submitted your find.
I did submit the young woman as a possible. Hopefully, they will let me know one way or the other.
Thank-you very much for your help. Can you please keep us updated about your submission?
Nothing new on this?
Feb. 28th is coming up soon. She was found Feb. 28th 1977.
Thank you Dark Shadows for bumping this. I'm sorry, but I have not heard anything from the contacts. My Dad passed away on New Year's Eve. He and my mother were married for 54 years, so I have been spending all my spare time with her. She is so lost. I will try to re-contact next week and see if there is anything new.
My dearest Sugie,:blowkiss:
I am so very sorry that I missed your post from months ago. I am so very sorry for your loss. Please forgive me for not being on this thread in so many months.
I called a reporter recently about this case and another case. She returned my phone call, but it was a voice message, I missed her call. I called back last week and left another message and then called again and she was out of the office. I am going to try again on monday and I hope that I can speak to her on the phone. I will post here when I am able to speak to her.
So much Love and Respect,

no DNA, no fingerprints so we are left with dentals. according to the dental section "Teeth 8 AND 9 PR0TRUDE ANTERI0RLY". would that make her buck toothed?
