    Details of Disappearance
    Carla last seen in Clearwater, Washington on July 1, 1981. That night, she left her family's home to babysit an infant at a house ten miles away. When the baby's mother returned home that evening, Carla was gone and the baby was home alone. A broken, blood-spattered Galliano liquor bottle was on the floor. Carla has never been heard from again. The blood at the house matched her type, but DNA testing was not available in 1981 and so the stains were not definitively linked to her.

    Authorities have a suspect in the case, a transient logger named Ken Barry. Bloodstains and broken glass from a Galliano bottle were found in his pickup truck. Barry died suddenly of a heart attack in 1986 or 1987. He was never charged in Carla's case. Her disappearance remains unsolved.

    Wondering out loud.

    The digs mentioned in this article took place in 2007.

    10 years later, and with the advancements in DNA testing technology, could LE revisit their evidence?

    Blood found on glass at the home young Carla disappeared from?
    Blood found on glass in the pickup truck?

    Did LE ever try utilizing trained dogs in the area they were digging in?

    So sad. One more child that needs to be returned home. IMHO
