    Very similar (especially the tatoo's description). Please update if you hear back from the authorities.

    I did speak with the sheriff in Tennessee. From the description, he says it certainly sounds like her, and he believes that the hwy where she was found runs through the state where she went missing and the state where she was found. He said he will keep me updated. He gave me more info that hasn't been posted yet and thanked me for my help. Encouraged me to keep searching. I wish there was more info on the missing.

    Just out of curiosity, isn't there someone assigned to cross reference these missing and unidentified found ppl? Or is it left to chance and the public?

    Way to go, princess! That is an awesome match. You are an angel to have spent the time to research this. I've been spending some depressing time banging my head against the wall on the Anna Nicole thread and this information makes me proud to be a Websleuther again.

    Prayers for this woman's family and may she soon rest in peace.

    Nice job! Bless your heart.

    I hope this woman's family can have some sort of peace knowing she's been found. It's always sad when it turns out this way.

    Usually if there is an unidentified body found police will look at missing in their immediate area. They may notify others in the region. But that is about where it goes. That is why Doe Network got started, to provide a place for families who are searching to have a place to look.
    There really isn't any excuse. If someone snatches someone or murders and wants to dump a body , for instance, they could be taken two states away in less than 4 hours. Within 24 hours they could be taken to a whole different area of the country. But no one would look outside the immediate area.

    I think you found a match. I'm anxious to hear if it's her. If it's not, I'll be floored.

    GREAT find!! Now maybe a family can have the answers it's been waiting for over ten years for.
