    Thank you. Yes I meant the remains could have been there for 6 years, making the timeline between Suzanne's disappearance and the discovery of the remains a reasonable one.

    I don’t see where she has been listed, but has anyone thought of this girl? I know she is from Puerto Rico...but it’s possible, especially if it was unfortunately human trafficking. Just thought she shared a similar appearance with this UID. Especially the age progression. What do you guys think?

    That's strikingly similar, IMO.

    Do you think I should submit it? I’ve never done that before and wouldn’t even know where to start!

    She would also have been 15/16 in 1978-79, and if she was 5 ft 1 and 125 at 11 years old, it sounds as though she might have had a stocky/muscular type of build. I think you !ight have something here. If so, poor girl....must be a terrible story from 1974 in Puerto Rico to ?

    I was thinking the same thing about her stocky build. I agree though, 4 years and from Puerto Rico to end up here can’t be good. :( she went missing with her brother. I’ll look later on to see if there are any other John does that might have came up around the same time frame that they went missing or even later too. Hmm.

    It sounds like you are correct. She may have run away, but at the moment that is speculation. I am sure as time goes on, we will know more about what happened to Sandy.

    Wow. I didn't follow this case, but it's great she now has her name back. RIP Sandy.
    After reading the article, it looks like she may have gotten lost in the shuffle of her parents' divorce. Her mother moved around a lot, and both parents have been dead for a while. I'm just extrapolating, but it would explain how she may have gone unreported or under-reported. It will be interesting to find out what happened to her.

    I just saw the great news on Fb, and had to head over here to make sure it was the (former) Jane Doe I thought it was! This is absolutely wonderful, but how extremely sad for her parents, who never got to know where their little girl went :( One can only hope they thought she lived a happy life somewhere else.

    From those few photos of Sandra, it looks like the recent recon was pretty spot on, btw.

    Tagging @theshadow45 , since I know this case is close to your heart..

    I think it was a serial killer who murdered Sandy.

    there was some talk it was the green river killer, Gary ridgeway, I thought.

    why was she not reported? Both parents were alive. Makes me suspicious. Also it was not common for fathers to take custody in that era. Lots of questions. RIP Sandy
