    Lekisha Allen went missing from Detroit a month earlier, in September 2015. She's 5'7" (exact) and 170 lbs (within 10 lbs.) The photo shows probable pierced ears. Differences in hair and grooming could be explained by a month on the streets. Resemblance? I'm bad at that, but here's a side by side.\

    Lekisha is said to be bipolar and schizophrenic, and she had a caretaker.

    The main thing that gives me pause is that Lekisha is described as having a missing finger, which is not mentioned for the UID and seems like a pretty major thing to leave out.

    What do you think?

    She looks like a good possibility.

    Doesn't look like they have any way to rule either or? Since she only went missing a year ago it must be something they could follow up if you send it in.

    The NamUs page has been taken down. I am trying to find out if they were identified.

    It doesn't appear to be any of the women suggested in this thread, and I can't find that an announcement was made.
