    Does this ring a bell with anyone, in the description of someone missing? A body was found locally(Western NY state), female 25-45 years old, 5'1"-5'8", 105#-125#, dead 1-5 years. She was wearing a size 6 tan boot with red flowers embroidered on them.
    That's a pretty unique boot. I hope this will job someone's memory.
    Here's a news link:

    TAN boots not ran, sorry

    Go easy on me....this is my first time starting a thread.
    An unidentified female's remains have been found in Western NY State. So far, investigators believe the female to have been between 25-45 years old, 5'1"-5'8" tall, 105-120#. She was wearing some very unique tan suede boots with flowers appliqued on them. She is believed to have died 1-5 years ago.
    Corrie Anderson and Lori Ceci-Bova from Jamestown have been ruled out.

    I did a search through NCMA and didn't find any. You may want to also post this in the unidentified forum so more people will see it.

    The weight seems a little off but the age and height are possible. I wonder what she was last known to be wearing or if she owned a pair of shoes like that.

    I noticed the weight discrepancy, but the missing persons report emphasized "thin build" and I'm not sure how accurate a weight estimate is from a skeleton.

    I definitely think it's worth it to email them. Better to be safe than sorry.

    A friend and I were discussing this being a "drive by dumping" of a body, this morning. I don't think so. I'm pretty familiar with the area, but couldn't get to where this woman was found without good directions.

    Michelle was supposedly "travelling" from St. Mary's to Buffalo. I believe they'd get off 86 at 219, far East of the reservoir, if that was the case.

    The time line and body type fit what we have been told.

    I definitely agree. I have NO faith in those working the case (or Corrie's, or Lori's, or any of the other women missing from this area)!

    I emailed the chief of Police for St. Marys, with a link. I'll let you know if he responds.

    I think she is a viable option. I hope they are better able to narrow down something on that description. I realize they don't want to exclude any possible matches at this point, but geez, could they at least describe the boot a little? Does it have a heel? and if it does how high is it? Was it an ankle boot? Was it leather? Was it suede? Was it pleather? Was it a winter type boot? Lined with fleece? Was it a narrow heel or a square heel? Pointy toe or square?
    She must be skeletal, but how much of the skeleton was recovered? Hopefully, they will release a little more info in the near future.
