    This is a hard one because of where the remains were found-- they are practically on the coast.

    Tarren Wolsmann fits age-wise. She lived a transient lifestyle camping various places. Last confirmed location was in Medford, OR, about a 3 hour drive from Gardiner.

    Tarren was arrested and released by Medford Police in December 2015. She is being sought by them and some people say they have recently seen her in the area.

    Thank you for thinking of Stephanie, missing 3 years 3 months October 4. It is our fondest wish for her remains to be found so she can be returned to her family and so there can be an arrest and conviction. Her boyfriend and the suspect, Lennie Ames used her car for several hours from late July 4 to early morning July 5, 2013. I don't think there was time for him to make an almost seven hour round trip. Further information is available in the links in my signature.

    Thanks for giving more info on Stephanie's case!

    We don't know exact location the remains were found or even if they have an entire skeleton. I'm guessing since they have not estimated height for this one they may only have partial remains. I don't know how far a body could travel in a winding river. Umpqua looks like it is quite long though. Here is a map showing where Gardiner is located and you can see how winding Umpqua is: https://www.google.com/maps/place/G...4113ca492f2d5c!8m2!3d43.7302934!4d-124.110418

    The Umpqua crosses hwy 5 at several points. The northernmost crossing is 108 miles (abt 1 hour 45 Minutes) from Ashland: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/43....8782df1ad!2m2!1d-122.7094767!2d42.1945758!3e0

    The southernmost crossing of the Umpqua and Hwy 5 is abt 98 miles (abt 1 hour 23 minute drive) from Ashland: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Ash...df1ad!2m2!1d-122.7094767!2d42.1945758!1m0!3e0

    While it's not impossible, I think it's a stretch to say she was put in the river and traveled almost to the ocean. Maybe if there was flooding or heavy rains?

    Also, I'm not sure which direction the Umpqua flows, this is all assuming it flows toward the ocean.

    According to the article, one of the 47 missing Oregon women in the age range is from Douglas county.

    http://www.nrtoday.com/news/human-r...cle_62214df4-9b9c-5544-bc90-36c2901287de.html

    Looking through NAMUS listings for Oregon, I guess we need to go outside the three years because a person could have been missing for several years before dying. I certainly don't see 47 listings in the past three years.

    Renee Zeller, missing since early 2012, left a suicide note and said she may go to the Oregon coast.

    I agree about the Umpqua after checking a map and deleted that part of my post while you were writing your post. :) You'd think that I'd know this, living in Oregon! Wishful thinking, I guess.

    Renee Zeller looks like a good guess.

    I don't see that many missing that fit the criteria either and criteria is rather broad considering they don't have a race or height/weight.

    The other problem is that this could be a woman visiting from another state. I guess we wait for the DNA and dental record results to come back and hope they identify the woman. Based on other cases, I'd say we're looking at many, many months.

    The Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office will continue its investigation in an attempt to identify the remains through DNA and dental records. This process, according to the sheriff's office, is expected to take a significant amount of time.

    I agree it could be a long wait for DNA. When I saw how close it was to the ocean I thought someone could have brought her there by boat. She could be from anywhere.

    It's driving me crazy that I can't read all of the words on the water bottle!

    In the picture of the other objects found, the yellow cylinder in the upper right is Burt's Bees lip balm and the bottle just below the sunglasses is Bach's Rescue Remedy (flower essences meant for stress reduction).

    There's another site with info on Teresa. I can't post it here, but it comes us when you search for her name and click on one of the pictures.
