The aforementioned Kelly Murphy brought this to my attention: Elizabeth Gill vanished fifty years ago today. This appears to be a case of stranger abduction. Elizabeth could well be alive today, a middle-aged woman, maybe a mother, perhaps even a grandmother by now, who doesn’t know who she really is.
Just realized it’s been 14 years this day that Jason Jolkowski walked out of his Omaha, Nebraska house into the void. His mother, Kelly Murphy, founded Project Jason in his honor. Project Jason is a great organization; I refer a lot of MP families to it. Kelly is an amazing woman and I admire her ability to bring something good out of this tragedy in her family. I hope this year is the year that Jason gets found.
The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department recently posted several new/old missing persons cases on their site (under the unsolved homicides section). I added/updated some yesterday. I noticed something:
Joyce Harper was previously listed on Charley as missing since January 1, 1975. I found out from the San Diego site, though, that the actual date of her disappearance is unknown because she wasn’t reported missing for 20 years. Meanwhile, Kimberly Cozart was last seen sometime in February 1977 and also wasn’t reported missing for a very long time: eighteen years. In fact, those two were reported missing on the same day: December 15, 1995. And it says Kimberly may use the last name Harper.
They vanished about two years apart and lived in different cities in San Diego County, but I wonder if there’s some kind of connection between the cases or between the MPs anyway. I suppose I won’t know until I get more information, assuming I ever do.
