    YW! Let me know what you think after you check it out. There are so many links on that one site that are related to MP and other topics that we deal with here.

    There were links to suspect composites, victim tattooes, Doe clothes & jewelry, MP sites that I had never even heard of. I was on there for a few hours checking out all the different links.

    I thought I started a thread a while back so when we come across an interesting site that would be a good resource, we could share with one another... When I searched for it yesterday I couldnt find the thread!! My memory aint what it used to be so maybe I didnt start a thread but had intentions to. :confused:

    just bumping for Melissa and her mom. I was thinking about her mother this morning. She must feel awful over all of this and I cannot imagine her pain the past 35 years. My heart breaks for her.

    It's good to know that DNA testing has already been done - kind of gives me hope that these cold cases are being seriously looked at by LE. Keep those eyes open, Scotch! Obviously you have a good eye for these things, as you're not the only one that thought this was a possible match.

    Does anyone know if they ever looked at the mom's roomate? To make sure that the child was actually handed off to a sitter?

    I set up this MySpace page for Andrea. And yes, we waited 6 months for DNA results. It's been since last March that I've been helping Andrea find her birth family and still looking. Ironically the woman who raised Andrea looks exactly like the composite drawing of the woman who took Melissa. We have determined that Andrea is 2 years older than Melissa.

    So did I, I thought the composite looked like Les Nessman from WKRP dressed in drag.

    Through the MySpace page I set up for Melissa the other day, I was contacted by Jannel Rap, who does the G.I.N.A. webcast concert for missing people (http://www.411gina.org). They want to feature Melissa on their May 19 webcast for National Missing Children's Month. I wrote back to her and I'm waiting for a response.

    I have always had an underlying feeling that the roommate should be questioned again. Not necessarily to make her a suspect, but I think she may have information that at the time, she didn't even realize was important.

    I heard back from Jannell - she would like to talk to Melissa's family prior to the webcast. I'm going to send her sister an email via WS - I see she has posted here before but hasn't in a while - hopefully I can get in touch with her via email. The webcast will be on May 19th.
