    I was thinking this missing person may be possible- Mary Little a white 25 year old woman. She disappeared October 15, 1965 from Atlanta Georgia after having dinner with a coworker. Her car was later found in the parking lot of where she had dinner. Inside the car was her under garments and spots of blood were present. Her card was used the next day in North Carolina and signed with her signature.

    “The gas station attendant in Charlotte recalled a woman with a cut on her head, trying to hide her face, traveling in the company of a man who seemed to be giving her orders. In Raleigh, the attendant told of a "bloody woman," with blood even on her legs, traveling with two men.“

    The Doe Network: Case File 556DFGA

    It seems they were traveling north. If they kept going they could have reached Pennsylvania.

    A couple things though that might not line up is the time the body was found unless they kept her alive for a few months. Also the undergarments on the body- Little’s were found in her car. Possible though that in that time frame they bought her some.

    Replying to myself to add that the height is a match. The weight is off a bit, she is listed as being 120lbs.

    There’s a lot of detail related to her disappearance. People out looking for her right away. Is it possible to test for DNA from the clothing? What about fingerprints?

    That is true, they were looking right away. I’m not too sure if it’s still possible to test the clothes. Doenetwork states fingerprints available for Little. I can’t find on namus if this UID has fingerprints.

    The grey pubic hair makes me think this may be a missing person towards the later end of the age range though.

    That’s a possibility unless it was premature gray. I want all these old cases DNA tested so their families can have peace.
