On April 27th, 2004, Olga Ponomareva was last seen walking away from her mothers home in Clackamas county where she was living. Her mother reported her missing the next day. Olga, who was 21 at the time, had left all her belongings behind. She had no identification on her and very little money. There has been no activity under her name, meaning she hasn't gotten a job, she hasn't renewed her I.D., she has done nothing that any of us need to do to lead a normal life. After 4 years time, we can safely assume Olga is in serious danger or dead. Is she an unidentified Jane Doe somewhere? If so, we haven't found her yet. DNA from her mother provides some hope that through the CODIS DNA database she could be matched to any Jane Doe who's DNA has been submitted there. But there is plenty of Jane Doe's who's DNA isn't there. Olga is 5'1", 115 pounds, has brown hair and brown eyes. Her case can be found along with others that are on the Clackamas county website linked below.

Ross Center Shopping Center, 11211 SE 82nd Ave

It should have taken Olga approximately 6 mins to walk from her residence to the shopping center.

I have been following this case, especially considering this occurred about less than five minutes from where I live in Oregon. I did a drive through of her route recently and as you mentioned Scorpio, it would not taken her long at all for her to get to Ross and back. One thing I did notice from a discussion on her at WS, was that there were time differences. One suggests she disappeared in the early evening hours, and another suggests a nighttime situation. This is perhaps one of the most baffling cases I have come across.

Another thing: A user from WS mentioned that there was a tip submitted that she may have been seen in Massachusetts living with someone that could be her husband, and she took his last name. I'm not sure what to make of it. I would love to get a copy of this report.

Also, its worth noting that Foster-Powell neighborhood in Portland has a high number of Ukranian immigrants that live there. The Multnomah Cemetery located there has a lot of Ukranians buried there too. I wonder if she may have family or associates that live in that neighborhood.

A friend of mine was supposed to help me put a flyer together in the Ukranian language so I could post them around, but I haven't received it yet.
