A stray thought

I was going over some old cases and NCMEC cases and stuff (and phoned in a tip to their hotline; I found a missing kid’s equally missing mother on Facebook) and noticed that on Amber Crum‘s casefile I’d written,

In 1986, investigators checked the fingerprints of a girl who was abandoned in California that same year. The girl matched Amber’s general physical description and was about the right age. Their fingerprints did not match, however.

I wonder, now, if that abandoned little girl was Denise Beaudin‘s child, Dawn/Lisa? Dawn was about the same age as Amber would have been, and she was abandoned in California in 1986.

I suppose I’ll probably never know. But it seems moderately likely.

    That’s an interesting thought. One would like to believe that abandoned children are rare. With that thought in mind, it seems possible, even likely.

    Denise Daneault has a Namus page now. You mention her briefly on Laureen Rahn’s page.
    Of note: When she went missing she lived on the same street as Bob Evans in 1980, the man suspected in Denise Beaudin’s disappearance and the Bear Brooks murders.
