    This would be one hell of a coincidence! I wonder if this has ever happened before, a doe nickname matching the real name.

    I am right there with you. When I read the article I had been up 21 hours so I was a little dismissive of the article.

    Then I woke up and re-read it, and also looked at messages Gwen, my Cave Junction Contact, sent regarding the message and everything just clicked. Gwen did some heavy research on the Lehman’s last night and she got pretty deep.

    So personally, I’m pretty convinced we found Annie. Literally. If not, back to the drawing board we go.

    The only one I can think of is Spring Dawn Jane Doe who was identified as Dawn Birnbaum.

    If Annie Doe is identified, and it comes to light that DDP was the people responsible for locating Annie’s sister, then this will make Identification #8 for the DDP, since last night’s announcement made John Clinton Doe #7. Also another fun fact: this would also be the oldest case that DDP has assisted with and solved should she be identified in a few weeks.

    DDP is on a huge roll with the identifications. I believe that it should be unanimous that forensic geanology really and truly works!

    NCMEC just recognized the Annie Lehman lead on their “Help ID Me” page. Sounds like Annie Doe will be heading home soon.

    I hope that with more of these cases coming out, more families will check to make sure their missing loved one is still entered as a missing person. Or, report them, if they were never reported.
    Unfortunately, prior to very recently, it was common practice to not take a report, or purge a report after a certain amount of time (especially if the missing person disappeared as a teenager). And many records were "lost" or destroyed while changing offices, crossing jurisdictions, upgrading to computerized files, etc. Or a family didn't realize that they could actually report a teen or adult missing.

    Annie Lehman may or may not have been reported missing (she's not currently in any system). The young man who was hit by a car and unidentified for more than 30 years (Matthew Wolf / Covina John Doe) ...WAS reported missing at the time and was even on milk cartons, but was not in any modern system.

    With all of the AMAZING things DNA Doe Project is doing, Doe Network, NamUs, etc... it would be EXTRA AMAZING if, when these news stations picked up the story about them being identified, they also spread the word about verifying missing persons reports filed decades ago. It would make the work DDP et al are doing so much easier.

    I received some inside info, and the info is that there could be an announcement this coming week. Fingers crossed!

    THIS. I recently helped a lady who had a friend who went missing about 30 years ago simply by telling her about NamUs, and how it works. She had never heard about it, but got very excited and said she would talk to the missing friend's family about getting them registred there. It really just seems like these international and national resources aren't known at all by most people. I have even registred several friends and families of MPs using rather obscure and not-known-at-all websites instead, which are seen by like 2-3 people max.

    Fantastic! That's the best way to do it too, keep everyone informed.

    So glad that her family has answers! And after nearly 50 years. Amazing.

    I will need to say this: I am shocked that Carl’s version of Annie didn’t come close to the real deal. He’s usually spot on!
     
  18. SheWhoMustNotBeNamed

    SheWhoMustNotBeNamed Administrator Staff Member

    Yep. I said pretty much the same in the comparisons thread. He's usually very, very close. Unfortunately, I don't think ANY of Annie's reconstructions / drawings / clay models / etc. were close.

    I want to let everyone here know that me and a friend who lives in Cave Junction and had been researching her case are planning to put together a memorial program for Anne-Marie in Cave Junction soon. We are working out location details right now but we are planning for possibly Anne-Marie’s program to be at Wild River Brewing and Pizza on Hwy 199 in Cave Junction, however this can change.

    We plan to invite everyone involved in this case and invite the public to attend, should anyone on CW be inclined to come. If you live in Oregon or close, we encourage you to come!

    Details are forthcoming. Stay tuned.
