Were there ever any answers about any of this?
Thank you oh so much theshadow45!! I am excited to be here and hopefully help out those who don't have a voice.
They had cadaver dogs on the family's farm. She isn't there.
Jan Cotta was added to the rule out list for Atlantic Highlands Jane Doe just recently https://www.identifyus.org/en/cases/1458.
Bumping for Jan, today is her birthday.
Very little to go on, but this UID's skull (believed to be female) was found in a barn elsewhere in Monmouth County less than 16 miles from Wall Township in 2006. Doe Network: http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1017ufnj.html and NamUs: https://identifyus.org/cases/1445 pages.
they both have dental records available, you could send a note to NamUs or Doe to see if they've been compared.
Jan has been missing for 45 years today.
This UID was found pretty close to whereJan went missing as well. Unidentified Person Case
Jan has been missing for 46 years today.
I continue to update her family as each rule out comes in.
There is a Jane Doe on Virginia that is going to have DNA testing done soon that looks like she should be compared.
That's good you stay in touch. Do you know if their DNA is on the genealogy sites in the off chance Jan's baby survived and was adopted and may be looking for her family?
I'll ask about the DNA sites. I post all the time about them, and the cases that are being solved by them, so I assume the family is aware, but it doesn't hurt to make sure.
Nothing. I thought that there was a Jane Doe that was found floating in the ocean back in the 70's that I think they were going to DNA testing on that I am waiting to hear about. I'll check on the rule outs again a little later and post any additions after I am done babysitting tonight.
As of today 3/2/2020, there are 21 unidentified persons exclusions listed on Namus: Weirdly, for UP1567 and UP6629, Jan appears in the rule out list for the UID, but they are not listed on Jan's exclusion page.
