    Hi there Al Ka. Thanks for the question.

    I Guess I should've mentioned that. Well let's start off from the beginning a little bit.

    I am on a few pages. Some Facebook groups and the like. I came across "NY DOE" as I am in NY and that's just one of the areas I look in now and again. (There are a few local places near family or where I grew up that I try to keep an eye on.) I also remember reading about the missing person in TN. I believe that one came up because of something similar. I originally was looking to gather some additional info on a different case (veteran doe). (I look at some cases for either something local or maybe no reason at all.) I also forgot that I still had my login info for here. I looked them both over from here and had my doubts but seeing that DNA and Dental Charting is entered...

    Anyways as I dug thru I noticed a few things:

    The DOE had a similar look to Patricia. Sure that's not a lot to go on but it is a starting point. (Gotta start somewhere.)
    Then I started to go down the list of things. Dates seemed about correct time wise.Patricia went missing Aug 19, 1983 and DOE was found May 13, 1984. Ect ect. so this lead me to think well maybe... But lets wait a second here. I want to run down a few things just to clear them up for you and me.

    Doe:
    NamUS 9736 Case# FMSP 84-296
    Found: May 13, 1984
    Location: Harriman State Park (Rte 6 also mentioned in some sources) Central Valley, NY
    Height: 5'0" - 5'4"
    Weight: 100 - 140 pounds
    Hair color: Brown (some have listed as dyed with natural gray)
    Eye color unknown (possibly due to decomp)
    Clothing: Gray shorts
    Jewelry: An pierced ear earring, 2 Rings (1 mother ring that had 2 stones and 1 possibly missing)

    Patricia Louise Kelley
    NamUS 12568
    Date Missing: Aug 19, 1983
    Height: 5'6"
    Weight: 135 pounds
    Hair: Brown (doesn't mention if dyed or had gray)
    Eyes: Blue
    Clothing when went missing: Gray shorts
    No jewelry mentioned however she has 2 children. Married or recently divorced. She is reported to have pierced ears.

    She was thought to have gone to several places but I can not find that they ever tracked her down to these places. One was FL but if they never had another sighting of her from TN for sure she could've ended up anywhere and NY is just as likely as FL at this point. They both have DNA profiles and to the best of my knowledge neither has been reviewed against any other profiles. Dental charting is also on file for both and so I said I just need to call and have the comparison done as this isn't something I can do or I would have. (lol) So its a long shot but I guess if nothing else it will cross off one more potential off the list, but I am hopeful it brings some closure to someone. This one is a little harder because there is really almost nothing I could find to pin more or less to either. Patricia's family doesn't seem to have a website for her for me to know if she would have had the means for such things like a costly ring, or slightly expensive jewelry, or more info on the hair or anything else like her children's birth month's' to compare to the mother's ring, so I figured let the pros decide. That's it in a nut shell. I will update you all if/when I hear back.

    Thoughts?

    Still waiting. When I'm better I will attempt a follow-up call. I've heard nothing and having only my phone I have no access to the other services.
