    I got a reply from Pamela Reed that based on the tip, they obtained Karen Tait's dentals and saw similarities that further suggested a potential match worth pursuing. They then escalated the DNA FRS to the national level.

    The CODIS hit came after that. So it was the tip that precipitated the escalation of the DNA profile to CODIS, and consequently, the CODIS hit.

    The news articles don't go into that kind of detail, but I think this is sufficient to classify this as a WS Match!

    CarlK, I have tears in my eyes! I am always so moved when we have a match! THANK YOU and BLESS YOU for the hours and hours you and your team spend here trying to send people home to their loved ones!

    And my prayers to Karen's family as they process this new stage in Karen's disappearance. She's coming home. :rose:

    Nice work, Carl.
    Interesting, that photo of her in orange shorts. It's kinda spooky that they could be the ones she wore when she died...

    Great job. As you say the CODIS hit would have come anyway but we all know how long that process can take. I truly pray for her child and hope her family can get to know Karen's child.
