Human skull near Butte, Montana

They found a human skull near Butte, Montana last week. So far little information has been determined: the experts are saying they can’t figure out the gender, the age or how long the person may have been dead, and it looks like the rest of the body is missing. The article mentions three missing people in the area whose skull it might be. Two are profiled on Charley: Helena Gracia, missing since May 2008, and Brandy Christiansen, missing since November 2007. There are over 40 other missing people from Montana profiled on my site as well. Some have been missing for over 30 years.

    Another set of skeletal remains were found at St. Mary’s Peak, near Stevensville, MT back in July.

    The article above mentions Barbara Bolick, who is profiled on Charley, but they don’t think it’s her.

    A few weeks ago, I called the Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office to see if they had any additional info yet on the vital stats, and basically, I got the “who the h*** are you?” bit. I said that I was a private citizen working online with other volunteers, and I would like to make the information available to families of missing persons.

    He said that if I know any MP families, I should tell them to put their DNA in CODIS.

      I have asked about this many times. Mostly to my forest service friends. No answers – I know what law enforcement will say. No need to even call them. Seems the only report is this one !! Very strange

    Does Helena Gracia have a head injury in the first photo on Charley? Makes me wonder what was going on in her life.

      It’s hard to tell. That could be just a scrape. She sure doesn’t look happy in that photo though.

        If that was me that went missing and such an unflattering pic of me got around, I’d come back just to find out who gave the cops or the news people the bad pic. And if I was dead I’d come back to haunt them as punishment.

        I saw a movie once where the main character was walking along in an airport or something when he glanced up at the TV and saw that he was wanted for murder (which he hadn’t committed) and they were publicizing him and asking the public to help find him. He said, “That’s my driver’s license picture. I HATE that picture.”

They believe she has been at the location from 3 weeks to 6 months. The article states that they have ruled out 4-5 missing teens.

    keep on it people. Likely police in Montana arent used to communities caring about this kind of thing. Missing people desrve to be found and their tormentors jailed, period. We are sick of criminals having their way. The more criminals that are put away the better our quality of life and safety

    I have a missing brother that was heading to montana after visiting family in Minnesota in 1979. He lived in Livingston in 1977 and Hamilton/Hughes Creek from 1974 to 1976. Maybe you could put him on your Charley Project. His name is David Thomson and his information can be found on
    Thank you so much!
