    One wonders why bar patrons wouldn't have noticed someone barefoot in the cold, and wearing pajamas? They just let her leave?

    I have seen the Jane Doe case profile before, but was not familiar with Rene's case.

    As mentioned, estimated age of Jane Doe would be off by ten years or more, but that alone should not rule out a possible match, since other physical features are close.

    The biggest problem that I see in trying to connect is the separation in time of a year and a half. It is known that Lamanna/Renee disappeared in January 1994. The unknown girl was found in July 1995, and had not decomposed much. The fact that investigators could determine her eye color and describe pierced ears, no tattoos, etc, is an indication that she may have been killed close to the 1995 discovery of her body. The question which would have to be answered would be how to reconcile that time lapse.

    Lamanna was last seen inside the Waterfront Bar in Somers Point, New Jersey at approximately 9:00 p.m. She has never been heard from again. Her coat was discovered two blocks from the establishment shortly afteerwards. A sheriff's department bloodhound traced Lamanna's scent between two homes on Central Avenue in Ocean City, but there was no other evidence of her at the scene. Authorities are uncertain if Lamanna has remained missing of her own accord or if other factors are involved in her case. Her disappearance remains unsolved. Some agencies state that Lamanna vanished from Ocean City, New Jersey.


    It does'nt mention her ears being peirced , missed that.
    It also says she did'nt drink but she was last seen in a bar too. Maybe she used the phone there to call someone. She left in her socks , no shoes on too , says she didnt do drugs, wonder if she left the hospital because she refused treatment.Anxiety is a horrible thing.Could have been a disgreement that set her out the door in socks. No mention if she took a suitcase either.
    You think she would have shown up with one.
    The eye color is off but could be a type O .

    I spotted a case lastnight where the missing is listed then they used a different last name in describing the circumstances , i was tired I have to go back I think its in a Pa listing for a boy.

    I'm taking a shot in the dark with this one but what about this woman found dead at a bus stop in Atlantic City in 2007? The side view of her nose seems pointy at the tip the way Renee's appears. Also, she matches the age range that Renee would have been in 2007. Both have bushy eyebrows. I know weight is off but as an older woman if she was living on the streets she may have become heavy or had intreated medical conditions such as diabetes. Sommers point is very close to Atlantic City and she may have been living homeless there for years undetected.

    Update: I've reported this comparison to Pamela Reed with NamUs in hopes she can help. I'd like to get the unidentified woman a NamUs page at the very least.

    This case does make me wonder how many of our missing who may be like Renee, still alive but unaware (for whatever reason) that they are missing.

    A 53-foot-long Road Scholar Transport Inc. trailer with photographs and other information about Renee LaManna is set to hit the road. The trailer will travel mostly in the area of Virginia and North Carolina, including Interstates 85 and 95, where Ms. LaManna has been spotted a number of times since last fall. In addition to photos and a description of Ms. LaManna, the Road Scholar trailer includes a new toll-free telephone number — 888-RENEE-11 — where sightings can be reported, along with a message written in the first person: “I can’t remember who I am. Please help me find my road home.”

    Road Scholar will also promote the search for Ms. LaManna on the back doors of at least 50 other trailers, beginning next week.
