Roxanne is a little bit taller than the listing for this Doe but not enough to rule her out IMO.

Is anyone going to / has anyone submitted her as a possible match?

NamUs case manager is Jessica Hager
Oregon Medical Examiner - (971) 673-8200
I have already sent an email to Dr. Vance last week concerning this. I am hoping to hear back soon. Kinda hoping Roxanne has dentals. Otherwise we will have to wait until we get the cremains and hope for a viable DNA sample from them.

Nothing Jason, maybe the link we leave it available for those who want to try with Doe, is always useful.
Oh of course! Haha I won't deny anyone the opportunity to use it if they must. DN is a great website; but I may still be a bit jaded after they handled my tip work during my Lake City John Doe years lol.

She looks eerily like that recon, for sure! But Nancy had left a 4 year old behind. Unless she was pregnant when she went missing, I have a hard time thinking they are one and the same.

and evidently very visibly pregnant or recently was if it was full term baby. Something tells me this doe was either not reported missing or went missing before pregnant or visibly pregnant.

There are no news or certain sources that this girl has currently disappeared on any site, if we exclude the links we say unofficial, however the similarity is great
Oregon’s medical examiner Vance is quite proactive for UID cases here. Surely she knows about Pem!
