Back in the early 2000's I turned in this Jane Doe as being a possible match for Cherrie Mahan. I believe I contacted the Doe Network since it was before NamUs was a thing. They told me she was ruled out but she still isn't on the NamUs rule out list.

The only reason I said this might not be Toni, is because this is a local case to me, and it has been said that they believe her remains are local, maybe ever buried close by, but she has never been found, and her step father is a suspect.

I am one to usually say, hey, it can't hurt to turn in the possible match, but I was just stating about her step father being the suspect, so you do you. We are here to support each other to give these Doe's their names back.

I guess my implicit thought was that the stepfather could have taken her a bit farther than they thought. Is the Charley Project summary more or less accurate?

The Charley Project Summary is pretty close to what I have read, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette had a article about her disappearance a few years back, but you have to pay to read it now. ( i was going to copy and paste it.) It was just a little bit more in depth with people stating that they believe he buried her close to home. (but that is just speculation of course)

I appreciate your thoughts on it! I'm new and trying to learn, so I value what y'all say.

Bumping this thread up a little. I submitted a candidate who wasn't reported missing until 2019. I guess I'm exhausting the list of potential candidates.

It's this girl: Charlotte Erdman

I submitted Erdman because her head shape and nose looked similar to Jane Doe in my opinion. That coupled with the fact that she was a runaway. Maybe Erdman traveled around the country? That letter postmarked from Illinois is proof enough for me. She was also 15 which puts Erdman at the high end of the age range.

She's a great candidate for Lady of the Dunes too right up there with Patricia Newsome

Her "button" necklace looks like the plastic version of the Hawaiian puka shell necklace. I think it is listed as plastic. By the 1980's puka shells were fairly expensive for a full necklace. Typically this style was worn by guys, popularized by David Cassidy in the 1970's. In the 1990s it became the "bro" necklace that we know, but in the 1980s, the popularity would more be west coast, ocean communities, etc. Not a standard female type of jewelry.Thoughts?

It certainly looks like one of these. My sisters and I used to get them on vacations to Mexico.
