    Hi Laughing. No, I've never seen this thread. Thanks for tagging me.

    ETA: Oh, I see this is an entire forum. I don't know how I missed this case forum before. It will probably take me a while to read up on her case.

    these threads used to be super active in the past and then they just get a hit or to every so often we all need to brainstorm and go over the threads and seer if we can get some fresh eyes and new people interested in her case.

    im not sure who we could add to the search i used to be super active on the forums my interests are cases from Connecticut and new england and anything 70s 80s and 90s from all over the usa and abroad and now i log in every so often. but i plan on logging in more often now.

    its 2019 its time to solve some cases and bring some closure to families

    Disclaimer: I have not read the threads. I have only read the Charley Project Page to get a quick summary of the case. I noted this: "Anna's mother and stepfather believe she is still alive and may not know she is a missing child."

    Has Anna's mom submitted DNA to the all the major commercial genealogical DNA websites? (Ancestry DNA, 23 & Me, Heritage DNA, Family Tree DNA, Etc)
    I would start by doing that to look for any DNA relative matches. Then upload the zipfiles from the tests to GED Match as well (GED Match is another place to find genetic matches and is used by LE-- be sure to "opt in" to allow LE to compare your DNA profile to Doe cases).

    Anna may not know she is a missing child but if she is alive she may have been told she was adopted. Or even if she was not told she was adopted, she could have had children and grandchildren of her own by now. Chances are that someone closely related to her may eventually be curious about their origins and upload their DNA to one of the commercial DNA websites. Anna's children or grandchildren would show up as close relatives of her mom.

    Anna's Mom posts here. I believe she has submitted DNA via the companies, with no results so far. As you've mentioned, lots of material to wade through.

    Thanks for checking in & adding to the discussion!

    Thank you for your interest. My DNA and that of Anna's brothers has been submitted to the national data base as well as to Ancestry. I think many of the sites dealing with this case need to be updated; Anna's stepfather died some years ago.
