This is a list of known missing females, where there is no photo available.   Having no photo eliminates the possibility of any facial recognition being used to help locate them.

I’m putting this list out there, in the hopes that someone may have access to newspaper articles or yearbooks which might contain photos, or even personal photos of the person.  If you are able to help with access to a photo, or have information to add to their profiles, please click the “Contacts” tab on the person’s NamUs profile and send them what you can.  Thank you!

Most of these cases are on NamUs, although some are listed on Law Enforcement websites, or have been posted by family members.  My list is not meant to be a comprehensive list of ALL missing persons with no photo, but I’ve listed as many as I could find.

I am going through the states alphabetically, then listing missing persons by date missing under each state.

4 thoughts on “List: Missing Persons with Photos Needed Pt 1

  1. Lina Barcelos Borges who missing from Santa Cruz, California on 3/21/1984 now has a photograph on her NamUs webpage.

    But since you originally wrote this blog entry more than two years ago, you may already be aware of this by now.

  2. Marjorie Joan Linehan who is missing from Sacramento, California (your entry says San Francisco) on 10/1/82 now has a photograph on her NamUs webpage. It is interesting that under the “eye description”, it states “beautiful”.
