    Link to Gertrude Bishop. Not a whole lot to go on as far as height, weight, etc, but a very clear college graduation photo is posted. The photo was taken about 7 years before she disappeared. Gertrude worked as a nurse at the time of her disappearance. Her family did not report her missing immediately, as Gertrude in the past had left for short periods. They also apparently did not want her disappearance reported in newspapers of the time. This time she did not return. It appears she was born around 1920 if her estimated age is correct.

    WS member Taramarie and I have started picking our way through a site that lists the "missing missing"- MPs that are not listed in NAMUS or other missing person databases. Many of the "missing missing" are pre 1970. A few are after 1970. If it is OK with the mods, we will begin posting them in this forum. I could not find a WS thread for Gertrude, so I am starting this one.


    Side Note: before posting Gertrude, I did an obituary search and found no one that matched her background as a nurse.

    Could you tell me the site of the "missing missing?" I look for a MP that went missing around 1970 and could use the extra info.

    Could this be the Christmas Tree Lady / Annandale Jane?
