OR LINCOLN COUNTY JANE DOE: F, 6-10, found near rest stop in rural Lincoln County, OR - 10 Dec 2020


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.

Over 180 tips received after girl's remains found in rural Oregon
Oregon State Police said they have received and investigated more than 180 tips from the public, law enforcement and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children after a girl’s remains were found in Lincoln County in December.

According to Oregon State Police, investigators have been able to exclude 61 individuals from being the child whose remains were recovered.

Investigators say they are still actively working to identify the girl, and are reviewing information regarding missing children. Several different investigative efforts are underway, including DNA analysis, according to OSP.

Officials say a sketch with the updated race and genetic details will be released when the DNA information is released.
Well kudos to them as they seem to be actively checking and excluding, etc. I hope whoever is responsible for her being there is sweating bullets.

In an effort to refocus the public’s attention and reduce duplicative tips, OSP is now prepared to publicly exclude the following reported missing children from our investigation:

• Dulce Alavez, age 6, from Bridgeton, NJ
• Addyson Gibson, age 12, from Portland, OR
• Noelle Johnson, age 7, from Portland, OR
• Niayah Bylenga (AKA Niayah Crawford), age 7, from Pendleton, OR or Ritzville, WA
• Tarie Price, age 8, from Gretna, NE
• Breasia Terrell, age 10, from Davenport, IA

In addition to this list, her NamUs Profile also rules out Serenity Dennard and Alicia Navarro.

I believe the only children still missing from the above list are Dulce and Tarie. The rest have been located.
