    I wrote up some of my thoughts. I also found an unblemished bottle of Rescue Remedy if someone wants to read the wording (I did a video up).

    Good thinking about the empty wallet....Gardener ones said, maybe she was brought there by boat....according to the Rescue Remedy and the production date..you suggest she went missing in or after 2011. Thanks. This case is still puzzling me.

    Teeth UID.PNG Donna van Zandt.JPG WA - WA - Donna Van Zandt, 33, Quinault, April 2014
    Someone in the thread for Donna van Zandt suggested that this UID could be her. Comparison of the teeth.

    Although Donna didn't go to the University on the waterbottle, but another one this looks very interesting.

    Teeth look very similar Bit of Hope! The glasses she is wearing are not the same as the UID but I looked through her flickr photos and she has some different glasses. It's possible by 2014 when she went missing Donna had new glasses not in those photos. The style of hat found looks like Donna's style based on the photos (but I don't see the hat either). Interesting she is on a boat in many of the photos.

    Definitely believe it's worth a try with Donna. I've been following along on this case. I am from the PNW and the Umpqua River is near and dear to my heart.

    I have taken your picture of the teeth and used photshop to make the picture smaller to see if the teeth matched.
    Here are those pictures. Please remember i'm not a proffesional or anything.
    And the only thing i did was scale down the photo and removed the area around the teeth nothing more.

    For the record. Renee Zeller's MP file in Namus is "down". Could that mean she is found, identified? UID's is still "up" in Namus.

    Gardener, I don’t know how good DNA is from the bones, but in Donna’s case, DNA identification would be possible. I think the teeth looks somewhat similar.

    Hi Bit of hope,

    As far as I know LE are trying to get a sample from Donna's family to do a DNA test.
    So keep your fingers crossed.

    It isnt a given, but the maple leaf on the small pouch in her possessions could give an origin of Canada. I had a look through Canada missing persons, there are a few cases that stick out but nothing solid to go on. Might be worth sending her dentals to be compared with Canadian missing persons.

    I can't see any posts inside this thread. Does anyone else have this problem?

    I wonder if this article from February 2018, when this thread was created, was the one in the OP:

    'We know so much, and yet we're missing just this one key little part: Who is she?'

    If this is the case, I think this UID has another thread open - OR - OR - Female, 30-45, Umpqua River near Gardiner, 1 Oct 2016

    Seems like this case is gone from Namus. Was she identified?

    That would be great. I searched a while for some kind of confirmation in the news but couldn't find anything yet. The reason could also be that they are working on the case/updating it and took it down temporary. Hope we will know more soon.
