Hi, My name is Ellen
I started this site to help find the missing and give the unidentified of Mississippi their names back.
I have worked with various missing persons groups for over 13 years.
I have helped identify 8 persons and given their families much needed closure. I hope to help more families in the future.
I have lived in Mississippi since 2001.
I was also in the Gulf Coast Search and Rescue, a volunteer 2009-2013.

Hello Ellen,

Thank you for your kindness and humanity. Few give missing persons any thought, But with public awareness sites such as this and with education for the law enforcement community, Hope can be generated for the grief riddle families of "The Missing". I laud loud praises for your accomplishment, and wish for you continued success in your quest for peace(of mind).

My son is a missing person's case in Mississippi (Yazoo county) but he isn't listed here. Then I noticed; "If you have a missing person to report, contact your law enforcement ageny." I did that, They even assigned a case #..(m-p 07-09-644) But I'm pretty sure that's as far as it went.
It's unfortunate that I live in Kentucky(for that reason) If I were able, I would have a second home at the SO in Yazoo. I would know everyone by first name. I would become a fixture.. Till my son was found..

Again Ellen, I thank you kindly, And pray for your success.
Stephen Johnston

This is another of my matches in Atlanta, Georgia, Laquita Smith
Match Confirmed 08-03 2011
This was just a jaw bone located....no reconstruction

http://z10.invisionfree.com/usedtobedoe/in...opic=66923&st=0

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

sorry for the delay. We’ve been trying to catch up with a couple of former UID cases here.



Yes, Laquita Smith was identified as our unidentified case 09-0952 through dental comparison last week. Det. Loy pickedup the dental records from a dentist here in Atlanta and Dr. Mary Beth Hauptle reviewed the radiographs and charting over the span of a couple of days and eventually arrived at the identification.

Thank you for your continued help and suggestions!

Robert Baynard

Match confirmed 9-29-2011

http://z10.invisionfree.com/usedtobedoe/in...showtopic=67438




I am responding to your inquiry about the unidentified remains found in Glendale, Arizona on August 11th, 2011. I receive confirmation via DNA analysis the deceased is in fact Robert Anthony Baynard of Phoenix (ref:Phoenix Police missing report #2004-41218287). Local media outlets were asked to profile the decedent on their websites and newscasts in anticipation that viewers may have information about his demise. Thank you for notifying us about Mr. Baynard, it was invaluable for expediting the DNA process. Your work is an invaluable service to those who are still missing and their families.



Thank you,

After a two-and-a-half-year investigation, Windham police has closed its investigation of a body that was found off Webb Road in 2009 and deemed a suicide.
According to a press release issued late Thursday, authorities were able to identify the body after investigation by the Maine State Police Crime Lab. The body, identified through the process of DNA analysis and comparison, is that of Kevin O’Brien, 29, of West Chester, Penn.

The crime lab issued its findings to Windham police March 9. Since then, Windham police had been in contact with the West Chester Police Department and a member of O’Brien’s family investigating the details of O’Brien’s initial disappearance and how they may have played a part in his death in Maine. As a result of that investigation, the initial ruling of suicide was confirmed.
Both the Windham police and medical examiner have closed their involvement in the case

Spoke to my half sister for the first time briefly last night
It really is amazing how all this is unfolding.

Thank you again for being part of it. It would not have happened without your involvement. I will stay in touch and let you know how it pans out.

My best

Christine Miller case: ( there wasn't any stats on Christine, I went by timing and reconstruction of unidentified)

Hi Ellen-

We received verification in December 2012 that the DNA for UP 8908008 matched the familial DNA of MP Christine Miller.

Thanks for your help and let me know if you see any other potential matches-

Hughes, 45, disappeared from Tiptonville, Tennessee on December 4, 1982. She left home with a male companion, L.V. Young, and never returned. A month later, their vehicle was found in the Mississippi River with Young's body inside. Hughes remained missing until May 2013, when her remains were identified. They had washed ashore on the banks of the river in a small Arkansas town 150 miles from where she disappeared.
