    Maria Reyes
    Missing since March, 1976 from Pompton Lakes, Passaic County, New Jersey.
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Vital Statistics
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 48 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 80 - 90 lbs.
    Marks, Scars: She had recently undergone a mastectomy.

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Reyes was reported missing by a close friend on March 22, 1976. A housekeeper said she missed her doctor's appointment on the date she was reported missing. Her husband who is now deceased, told police she packed her things and left home but investigators thought she would be too weak after her recent surgery, weighing only 80-90 pounds, to do so.

    The case is unsolved and her body has never been found. Reyes has ties to Chile and relatives there but authorities in Santiago, Chile said she had not re-entered the country during the time period she was missing.

    Investigators
    If you have any information concerning this case, please contact: Pompton Lakes Police Department

    While looking into the possibility of a serial killer working Rt 80 from NJ into PA, I found the following report....

    1990-partial skeleton of 20-30 year old white female found in Wayne NJ, believed deceased in 1985

    As I recall, authorities had difficulty dating the remains, but believed them to have been at least five years old. Wayne is about 8 miles from Pompton Lakes.

    There is an UID in Texas that was found 22 yrs after Ms Reyes went missing. The reconstruction looks possible as a match to her. What do you wonderfully talented comparison sleuths think? I'm not very good at this.

    The reconstructions of the Jane Doe do look a lot like the photos of Ms Reyes. However, Ms. Reyes would have been 70 years old at the time of the death of the woman in Texas.

    Next Month marks the 40 year anniversary of Maria's disappearance.
