Is it just me or…

I was thinking of making Contina Venice Patton tomorrow’s MP of the week. I Googled her name to see if I could find anything new about her and came up with these mug shots for a Contina Venise Patton in Fulton County, Georgia, eight years after Contina Venice Patton disappeared from Flint, Michigan.

It’s really hard to tell with faces, but I think the mouth and the nose are very similar.

[UPDATE: Yeah, I called it in to the Flint Police. Of course I got an answering service cause it’s Memorial Day and all but I left a message explaining that I didn’t think Contina was really missing anymore and they ought to take her case off NamUs.]

    I think it happened to me too at least once when I was google a missing persons name – you never know….

      Well, once the hour is decent I’m going to give the Flint PD a call.

    I just took a look at the “Help find Contina Wilson-Patton” Facebook page:

    https://www.facebook.com/HelpFindContinaWilsonPatton

    There was a comment from January of 2013 that indicated she had been located – a family member replied that they were aware that this was the case. I’m guessing that this case can be removed from Charley.

      She’s still on NamUs, though. Someone should tell them. I think I’ll call the Flint PD anyway and ask them to ask NamUs to remove it.

        Or email the links you found to the PD. It does appear it is the same woman, the clincher too would be the bent finger mentioned in your case file. However the mug shot was from 2012, with low bond. She may no longer be locked up and may not have any contact with family or could be homeless.
        At the least it needs to verified and then removed or updated on NamUs. However, that may take awhile. I notified my state FBI to update their page for a girl’s remains found more than a year prior as they still had her listed as missing.

    I would say based on photo number 2 where she s calmer–it seems to be her. Hope you let us know what the Flint PD says.

    Sadly, she was beautiful at one time. Its clear to see she’s an addict….so sad.

    • Meaghan May 25, 2015 / 8:30 am

      I don’t know if she’s an addict or not but the years have clearly taken their toll on her. As they do on us all.

    I wouldn’t post anything else until the confusion is cleared up. That is an accident waiting to happen. Feature someone else, not that this case hasn’t gotten attention now, and let us all know what may come of your phone calls. You never know, wouldn’t it be nice to have a resolve?

    • Meaghan May 25, 2015 / 8:41 am

      Yeah, I have already chosen someone else to post — one of those “few details are available” cases that needs some attention. You’ll see who it is tomorrow.

    Checked out the other links. I think it is her. Problem with having unique names like that is all it takes is a letter change and you have a whole new file. Hope her family really did find her. Nice to have an ending that could be nice!

    I also believe that is her….she has lead a troubled life it seems.

    • D'Lil May 26, 2015 / 6:10 am

      Yes, some kind of hardship. In earlier pictures she took care of her hair. The two mug shots show that was no longer a priority or no funds possibly for the upkeep. I’d think if she had some contact with family, they would’ve notified NamUs. Unless they weren’t the ones to submit it. The family may not even be aware she is listed on the site.

    Ok im a little confused, is her last name Venice-Patton or Wilson-Patton? They look the same to me, sorry if thats a stupid question

    • Kat May 26, 2015 / 6:51 pm

      I would assume Venice is her middle name, Wilson-Patton last name. Though I’m not totally sure, someone else here can help you I don’t doubt.

      • Marcy Potter May 26, 2015 / 7:20 pm

        I just read somewhere she could be using both
