    I absolutely can not believe that this woman isn't on Websleuths, but I searched and couldn't find her.

    So here is my little list, I've only done Washington and Oregon Missing persons, and also I have the hardest time seeing an Asian woman in their reconstructions.

    Dianne Robbins
    [​IMG]
    Otherwise known as the only Asian that had similar stats
    Charley Project
    Pros: She's the right ethnicity, she's also really close in height,
    Cons: She would have been 15 if she had stayed alive until 1987, which is three years young. Also her friend was found dead in Washington a month later. And she wasn't living a high-risk lifestyle, according to family she probably would have gone home if she had the chance.


    Doris Lavonne Mulhern
    [​IMG]
    Charley Project
    PROS: Age-range fits, height is close, time-frame fits.
    CONS: ethnicity doesn't fit, and Idk if Dayton ever went all the way up to Seattle to pick up girls, I think he went straight from 82nd Ave to the Mollala forest.


    Linda Louise Jackson
    [​IMG]
    Charley Project
    They claim she was last seen in 1983, but she was literally never reported missing. She could have realized how scary it was to prostitute out in Seattle and moved to a quieter Portland. There's just no proof that she died in 1983, if at all.
    PROS: age range, I don't know what the Dr. meant by Indian, but people call Native Americans Indians all the time. Occupation
    CONS: height is off, and time-frame is a little bit of a stretch


    Alexis Christina Owens
    [​IMG]
    Charley Project
    PROS: Height, time-frame, and she was in California after she was last seen, she could have been hitching her way back up to Washington and met her fate in Portland.
    CONS: Two years too young, and the fact that she was arrested in Cali after she was last seen probably would throw off the timeline a bit.


    Pollyanne Jean Carter
    [​IMG]
    Charley Project
    PROS: Age and possible prostitution
    CONS: Timeframe is a bit of a stretch (But not too bad), and height


    And my "Probably not but I'd kick myself if I didn't add:
    Elizabeth A. Eisel
    Wendy L. Aughe
    Carlota Maria Sanchez or her cousin Elsie Eldora Luscier

    Here's a new addition to NamUs:

    Tawnia Jarie Johnston

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/21450/0

    Although her Age LKA is listed in NamUs as 20 years old (on 01-Apr-1987), she is listed in Ancestry.com with a DOB 07-Sep-1968, meaning that she would have been 18 on 01-Apr-1987.

    There is a Tawnie Johnston who went to Churchill High School, Class of 1987. This appears to be the same person as the "Tawnia J Johnston" listed in Ancestry, and probably the same person as the "Tawnia Jarie Johnston" listed in NamUs.

    Here is her Sophomore photo from the 1985 Chruchill HS yearbook.

    Notice the misspelled names in the article. Wonder if that had been problem in the past?
