I found a description of the clothing and belongings in this article:

Medical examiner seeks help identifying woman found dead near Springwater Corridor in Gresham

She was found wearing several layers of clothing including black gloves, a black knit cap, blue jeans, a white shirt, and two sweaters - one black with Pacific NW on it and one with a flower pattern, according to the medical examiner’s office. She also wore a black jacket with the handwritten words “Patricia G” on it.

The unidentified woman was found with a TriMet day pass, black and gray lunch bag, black lanyard and a blue rain poncho.

Patricia Gomez was 23 when she was last seen in Belvedere, CA headed to San Anselmo in 1979. Her Charley Project profile mentions LE believe she jumped from the Golden Gate Bridge but I didn't find that info in any other profile I've come across, including Patricia's CA DOJ AG profile. Her name and initial would match with the handwriting on JD's jacket ("Patricia G"). Patricia's current age would be at the upper limit of the age estimate. Although the height and weight are off a bit (see below), I see a resemblance when comparing the photos of a younger Patricia with JD's composite. I wonder whether JD's nose could be described as "Romanesque"? MOO

Age 45-65 Years (PG Current Age 65 Years)
Height 5' 2", Measured (PG 5' 6")
Weight 120-135 lbs, Estimated (PG 100 - 110 lbs)
Hair Brown (PG Brown)
Eyes Brown (PG Brown)

Is it safe to say Jane Doe had no tattoos? Clothing description wasn't added to the Namus file too. Did this woman gave birth in her life? It would be a very good means to rule a whole lot of women out. Did she had piercings....pierced ears?

To me this is a good possible. When you google Springwater Corridor Trail it is known for having a homeless population.

Her Charley Project profile mentions LE believe she jumped from the Golden Gate Bridge but I didn't find that info in any other profile I've come across, including Patricia's CA DOJ AG profile.

I'll try my best to get answers from the ME when they return my call. ;)

Tatttos?
Births?
Piercings?
Dentals?
Surgery?

Ricki @ ME's office couldn't release any info other than what's previously been released. She asked specifically whether Patricia's ears are pierced (they are) and if she has tattoos (tattoos aren't mentioned on her profile). The answer will hopefully come quick because Patricia's fingerprints and dentals are on file according to her profile on DoeNetwork back in 2018 (See post #2 in Patricia's WS thread). Her current DN profile states dentals are available but fingerprints & DNA are unknown. :confused: Also, apparently I was incorrect above; Patricia's eyes are hazel/hazel-blue, not brown. I have no clue what I was looking at Saturday when I posted above. :oops:

Ricki said she'd contact me back if it's not a match. Now we wait. :)

Can't let this lady go. The Springwater corridor trail had homeless camps for ages...some people lived there for years and years. It was "cleaned out" a couple of times and people camping out there had to move (to?), so it seems. I wonder if this woman just arrived there (day pass TriMet....does it have a date?) Were people asked if they know (seen) her (before)? (I understand that most people living of the grid are reluctant to share information, but most keep an eye out for others) Where there any outreach workers down there who could have known her (lunch bag?) Did she have money on her? Was there a tent, some kind of shelter to keep her warm (it was cold in February) or was she found with only the clothes on her back....As a woman she must have been hardened in a way but extra vulnerable for violence. Maybe she was disabled...had brain surgery or something the like, big head wound....?? Who knows... she could even have underwent some electro-convulsive therapy (ECT) The Patricia G. writing on her jacket could be a red herring, but could also mean she was in some kind of institution... and went missing from there....just thinking and rambling.....
