    Yet another missing young woman/teenager with strawberry-blond hair.....Laurie Sibrell
    from NAMUS: https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/28556/3/

    Laurie is listed as being quite tall - between 69-73 inches. Strawberry blond-hair, blue eyes.
    No photos that I could find. No FP, no dentals, but DNA is in the system.

    Laurie "was last seen leaving CY Market at 1600 hrs on 11/5/78, walking on Hillsboro Road. " according to NAMUS.

    "1600 hours " would be 4:00 pm, according to my "raised as a military kid" husband.

    I could not find Laurie on Doenetwork-I will submit her.

    She was just entered this last summer. No pictures yet. I'll add her to my watched list so if they load any images, we'll know right away.

    On second thought, I won't be doing that as I'm only registered on the UID side. :doh:

    I added Laurie to my case tracking on the MP side.

    I discovered some "interesting" things today regarding MPs with strawberry -blonde hair. Between 1-1-1973 and 12-31-1978, there were 57 females with strawberry-blonde hair that went missing. The majority of those 57 seemed to fall into 3 groups according to where they went missing: Northern CA, a second group from OH/PA, and a third group from FL, 3 missing from the Ft. Lauderdale area alone.

    From 1/1/1967 to 12/31/1972- there were 18 missing females with strawberry-blonde hair. They also seemed to fall into groups: PA/NJ, northern CA/WA, and FL again.

    I will look at 1978 forward tomorrow.

    Okay now that's just WEIRD! Being a strawberry blonde myself I can tell you that's a HUGE amount. Only 3% of the world's population have red hair.

    It gets worse, a lot. Between Jan 1, 1979 and Dec. 31, 1984, there are 157 cases of missing people who have strawberry-blonde hair. Of the 157 MPs, 103 of them are female. WTF!!!???!!! I am looking at Namus in 5 year chunks. Once again, lots of strawberry-blonde MPs from Northern CA, plus several from southern CA; PA (again); FL (again)

    I haven't even started on the red/auburn MPs yet.

    There are between 20-25 strawberry blonde females per year listed as MPs. The exception is the year 1980. In 1980, NAMUS lists 7 females with strawberry -blonde hair as MPs. I haven't looked at the MP males yet. From 1990-1995, there are 114 MPs with strawberry blonde hair. Once again FL, PA and northern CA have a lot.

    Looking for information about Lori Sibrel, went missing in Franklin, TN. in 1978. Walking from the CY Market on Hillsboro Rd. Only one photo and no other information available in Lori's case. Please if you know anything, have any photos, OR if you know someone that grew up in the Franklin area please feel free to post and help spread word. Someone is missing this girl and we'd like to bring her home.

    Lori was just added to the Doe Network today. There is very little information online about her.

    In the Facebook link above someone suggested Lori could be a match for El Dorado Jane Doe

    I think this looks promising. Jane Doe was 20-30 when she was killed in 1991. Lori would have been 28. Also Jane doe was extremely tall, 5'10 to 5'11

    Lori was 5'10 when she disappeared.

    It gets worse....

    From 1978 to 1992, many, many women, mostly unidentified, and most with red hair, were found dead along freeways around the general area of Knoxville, Tennessee.

    It seems a trucker had a thing for redheads...
