    Here's a new addition to NamUs:

    Greta Laura Riles
    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/19128/0

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    * Timeline: LKA June 21, 1991 - Within estimated postmortem interval (1990-1992)
    * Location LKA: Tulsa OK - Same City where UID was found.
    * Age: 22 to 23 - In the middle of UID's estimated age range (18 to 26)
    * Height: 62" (5 feet 2 inches), shorter than height estimate (5'4" to 5'6")
    * Resemblance: She has a very similar facial shape.


    The one negative is height. However, I've seen enough botched height estimates that I don't think this is too much of a negative, considering that everything else seems in-line.

    CarlK, did you submit this one or hear back on it? I thought the two profiles were worth looking into so curious how it panned out. Thanks!

    Tests are still not complete for this JD's DNA.

    Depending on lab backup, it could be years.

    If anything, they would have put her on some kind of a "Fugitive" list. Families/friends probably wouldn't report someone missing if finding them means that they'd have to go to jail. That's probably why there are so many missing persons that aren't ever reported as missing.
