Circumstances of Discovery

The victim was located in February 1980 in a wooded area of Clark County. A father and son were mining for gold along Fly Creek, just south of Healy Road, when they stumbled across the partial remains. At the time, detectives combed the area and investigated all the missing persons cases, but came up empty.

In 2005, speculation arose that she may have been Jamie Grissim, who vanished in 1971. Some of Grissim's personal items were found near the area where the remains were found. DNA results indicated they were not the same person.
