Unidentified remains of a young girl found in the Lincoln County woods​

The remains of a girl between ages 6 ½ and 10 have been discovered along the H.B. Van Duzer Forest State Scenic Corridor in rural Lincoln County, Oregon State Police announced Tuesday.

Detectives are seeking the public’s help identifying the child. Her remains were found in the area of the scenic rest stop along the heavily wooded corridor, which winds through Oregon 18 from northwestern Polk County to Lincoln City.

Authorities say they are unaware of any reports of missing children matching the girl’s description.

The girl was about 3-foot-10 to 4-foot-6-inches tall and her hair was long and either dark brown or black. Her race or ethnic origin has not yet been determined. The results of a DNA analysis are not yet complete, state police said.

The condition of the remains suggests the girl had been dead for at least 30 days before being found Dec. 10. State police have not released the cause or manner of death.


“It is very rare to find a child that law enforcement cannot identify very quickly,” said Carol Schweitzer, supervisor of the forensic services unit of the center.

She said instances of unidentified remains of children under age 11 typically don’t have associated missing persons reports.

“When we are talking about children under the age of 11, we find the biggest hurdle to get over is they are not reported missing the majority of the time,” she said. She cited several reasons, such as the potential involvement of the child’s caretakers or custody arrangements where the non-custodial parent may be unaware the child is missing.

“There are a lot of family dynamics that may be involved,” she said.

Even if there are, and they haven't been written over, are they gonna investigate every car that drove by for the past 2 months? They have no idea when, or what, they're looking for.
She was found on December 10. Believed to have been dead for at least 30 days.
True. Hoping I guess, like maybe if she was dumped recently but killed that long ago. I guess too many cases, like Letecia who moved Gannon later. Or that guy who traveled with a body in suitcases on a bus wasn't it?

They definitely have a challenge to figure this one out.

I have no idea how I missed so many posts on this thread. That happens every once in awhile, must be my settings. I only mention it because I did not mean not to respond. Current news does that to me at times too.

Yes it was a man on a Greyhound with his dismembered girlfriend in a suitcase. He went home to visit his family. They didn't even know at first.
That was a strange one. Just imagine finding out later you were on that very Greyhound. I think just the thought would freak me out.

Mystery of girl’s remains generates 150 tips: ‘We are hoping there is somebody that misses this kid’​

Oregon State Police have received nearly 150 tips about the unidentified remains of a young girl found in the woods of Lincoln County, but investigators have no solid leads nearly four weeks into the case about the child’s identity or how she ended up along a muddy riverbank.

Six state police detectives and a sergeant are working full time to piece together details about the girl but much remains unknown, said Lt. Cord Wood, who is supervising the team.


The child’s remains were along the banks of the Salmon River, about 75 to 100 yards from the rest area parking lot on the eastbound side of the highway.

“The biggest challenge is trying to identify who this little girl is,” Wood said. “We know more about her today than we did on the 10th when we found her, but it’s a very slow process and based on her condition there (are) just certain things we don’t know about her yet.”

The child was between ages 6 ½ and 10, was between 3-foot-10 and 4-foot-6-inches tall and had long hair that was dark brown or black. She was dressed, but investigators declined to say what clothing she was wearing.


Wood said investigators have not determined whether the girl’s remains were left at that location or left elsewhere along the river and then drifted to that spot. They don’t know where she died or whether she was submerged in the river at any point.


Detectives are combing reports of missing children but what they need is information about kids whose disappearances have not been reported, Wood said.

“There is a chance that nobody other than whoever put her there knows she was missing, but we are hoping there is somebody that misses this kid,” he said.

He said investigators need the public’s help.

“We need information, we need that tip, that piece of something to help us figure out who this little girl is and where she belongs,” he said.

It is interesting they don't share what she was wearing. It would seem it might help identify her to someone.

So she could have been already dead and placed there, killed there, floated down, etc. for all they know right now.

I know they can't know for sure but a six year old and a ten year old is a fair age range for people to think about who they know that might be missing. If someone dumped her out of her own state, that will be even more difficult for anyone to connect her with a tip. And having no time period of when this happened just another complication for people to connect it.

I wonder with Covid and schools having been in flux if maybe she has not been missed by for instance teachers as this age range is school age, IF she attended school, like someone who all of a sudden moved or is not attending online schooling. Man, where would they even start? And then how do you verify it is the one someone may suspect it is... DNA of course but how do you get the DNA from someone to match it just on tips of possibilities...

Sadly, there have to be some never found children reported in the country that may match her general description to check but it sounds as if they are leaning towards someone never reported missing that no one knows is missing but the probable perp...

I’m wondering why they think she floated there? I live by one of the larger rivers in the state and it is full right now and hasn’t subsided at all.
They didn't say whether they think that or not, just that it's possible.

Also from the article:

"The Salmon River is swollen now, but the river was lower on the day the girl’s remains were discovered, Wood said."

I wonder if they are sure the dark hair was natural color? I imagine they can tell? Because Serenity Dennard comes to mind. She is the right age. Probably very unlikely but one of those I despair of ever being found I guess.

I have a strong feeling this girl hasn’t been reported missing.
I think you are likely right but I am happy they are checking others against her like Dulce and Breasia, etc. Maybe if she was not reported, one day someone will realize there is a child, neighbor, niece, student or someone they have not seen...
