Could anyone tell me what and where is the photograph that looks like a fountain or a small structure for the drainage of water? I tried to look for it on the US 19 with Google Maps but I didn't find it. Then I wonder if the UID was found right there near this one or far from there. Also someone who has the account on Namus can post the updated list of exclusions?

Thanks @kdg411 could you find the precise point with Google Maps please when you can and you have time?
I'm reviewing Route 19 (Flat Top Road) & by the using the image above it doesn't appear it's on this road but a street off of it because the street markings aren't visible. However, I'm optimistic and will continue reviewing Google Earth & Mapcarta. Do you know if anyone has reached out to Mercer County Sheriff's Department for the gps of this location?

Thanks, no I can't tell you if anyone has contacted or written to the sheriff to ask for information; among other things I wanted to make an account on Namus but since I live in Italy I cannot do it, because I would be forced to enter a state where I do not live and I would declare a false thing or info.

Found this point but I don't know if it is the same as the photo, there may be others


Is another secondary road beside US 19, 242 Co Rte 19/19

That is exactly what we're looking for. It's not the exact one though because the barrier on the right needs to be on the same same side as the alumunim drain.

Did that make sense?

Yes, I thought so too, but what if it were also on the opposite side but covered by vegetation?
The vegetation will probably still be high because it's not a main road. Did you notice the steep hill that it is on? That may be a better way to look fot it too.

Yes I saw, isn't it that you could see it from the perspective of the hill? However, it seems a fairly wooded area to me, but if the exact spot where it was found is there, it could have been noticed earlier, there are houses nearby, unless it was found in the nearby woods or in some other side street since I noticed that there are many.

It would be nice to have more detail on the location, however it has to be close to the location you found.

The Namus contact for law enforcement is Darrell Bailey however he passed away December 28, 2018.

but I clicked on an image and it showed this same image taken at another time/season and the drain IS at the correct place!View attachment 9788

Then probably in that photo the exhaust pipe was covered by vegetation; likely that this UID was found in the woods or in that wooded area around them; profiles missing for this female UID
