Unidentified Female Found May 30, 1980

Near Blue Earth, Minnesota














The following names and links are a collection of missing persons cases that, based on the information contained within that particular posting, flyer, or web page, could not be definitively ruled out as a possible match for our Blue Earth Jane Doe. They are in alphabetical order, and although some are clearly better possibilities than others, I felt it was imperative not to exclude any case that I found that may even have the smallest possibility of being Jane Doe. I also did not exclude cases based merely on height, weight, age, or hair color because I found this data to often be an estimation or may have changed between the time of disappearance and time of Jane's discovery. In addition you may see cases where the date "reported missing" or the date "last seen" does not specifically coincide with Jane Doe's discovery and may appear to rule out the possible match. Depending on the particular source of data, case details, etc, I sometimes made the decision to keep these cases as possibilities because in my research I have found that often the date "reported missing" and the date "last seen" are frequently confused and/or may be incorrect, or based on recollection. Please always consider the possibility that a "date reported missing" may not mean "date last seen"  and vice versa. There could be as much as "years" in between.  Any notes regarding DNA comparisons done with Jane Doe's DNA may no longer be valid and should be reconsidered pending the new tests once they have been completed!

My heart aches with the knowledge that I may have looked right at Jane Doe and clicked to the next page, simply because a particular piece of data was incorrect or I interpreted it incorrectly. (This page is updated on an ongoing basis)
