    Timing, age and some details are right on. There are so few details on Linda, it's difficult to put it together. Can't hurt to try!

    I wonder if the sketch was done from photo of victim or computerized reconstruction?? I wish they would state that, it would make it a bit easier!

    Here's a side by side of Rachel Pleva and NM Jane #1982-03859 for ya!

    I don't see a resemblance other than the nose & vital details. From what I can tell, the jawline and browbone are both VERY different. But the picture of Linda Pleva is pretty grainy and poor, so it's possible.

    According to this article, authorities may be close to ID'ing this Jane Doe. She is thought to possibly be a 39-year old waitress named "Margo", who was a friend of Stewart Simmons. Simmons was recently ID'd as being a John Doe found in Archuleta County Colorado in 1992.

    No, not my tip.

    No, it is clear from the article that they already know about Margaret Walden. It is the info in the article that led me to finding Walden.

    Stewart Simmons NamUs MP # 717 Google cache DNA Status: Sample is currently not available - Dental information / charting is currently not available - Simmons was in the United States Navy in 1982 and was stationed in San Diego, California. He got into a minor altercation and was sent to the brig for a short time. Simmons was granted temporary release to locate his vehicle; he disappeared during this time. Three weeks later, his military identification was used on the base to rent camping equipment, but it has not been established that it was Simmons using the ID. He has never been heard from again.
    Simmons resided in Georgia at the time of his disappearance; his family also lives there. He has ties to South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee and Mexico as well. His family filed a missing persons report with the Roswell, Georgia police in 1999, seventeen years after Simmons vanished.

    I suppose I could make an entry for Margaret, but I'm not sure I understand why it's important to do. Is it for completeness' sake, or something else?

    I came over here to mention Margaret Walden and I see this is already being looked into. In my opinion it is highly likely. I will be shocked if it's not her.
