    Ellen Akers stopped by the 7-Eleven on Atlantic Avenue where her mother worked at about 8 p.m. to get money for the movies. It's unknown whether she ever saw a show, but Akers never came home that night.
    Neither family nor friends have seen her since.
    When Akers' mother came home from work the next morning, she realized her daughter was missing. The stepfather reported Akers missing at 4 p.m. that day.
    Police said her purse and eyeglasses were still in her bedroom at home after the disappearance.

    When Akers' mother, Linda Riester, came home from work the next morning, she realized her daughter was missing. Stepfather Phil Riester reported Akers missing at 4 p.m. that day. Police said her purse and eyeglasses were still in her bedroom at home after the disappearance.

    So the mother is working the night shift at a 7-11.She notices her daughter has not been home all night long but she waits til 4 PM til the stepfather reports her missing?Thats fishy.

    What was the stepfather doing during those hours?

    Why was Linda going to the movies supposedly by herself?Surely her friends knew something was wrong!Why were her purse and glasses in her bedroom?

    Things just don't add up here!

    Case History
    The victim was located in a dense wooded area near a frequently used illegal campground on West Summerland Key, just south of the Bahia Honda Channel Bridge on February 15, 1991.
    Windsurfers camping in the area near Bahia Honda State Recreation area, located near mile marker 35 on US 1 in the Florida Keys, made the discovery of the girl. Her body was laying on a dirt trail in a heavily wooded area. She was beaten and strangled to death with her bikini top. Her face was bruised by a beating, apparently when she was killed.
    Investigators believe the victim was raped, but that has not been proved. An autopsy determined Florida Jane Doe had been killed the day before on Valentine's Day.
    Detectives got tips early on and learned that Florida Jane Doe had been seen by motorists hitchhiking along US 1 in the Keys. Because of her clothing especially the sweater and moccasins, she stood out. Based on the information, police determined on Valentine's Day the girl was in Key West and walked northbound on US 1 on Big Coppitt Key, about ten miles north of Key West. She was seen by another eyewitness at mile marker 15 and around 6:30 that night at mile marker 17.

    Her clothing was not typical of someone who was from South Florida, and she did not have any tan lines at all. Another indication she was visiting: She didn't wear tennis shoes or sandals

    This Jane Doe just sticks out to me.If you search for her on the doe network she looks just like Linda and if Linda had ran away and was not murdered then this could be her.

    That is a better picture of Akers.I know there is a site that has the picture in color but I can not find it at the moment.When I do I will post it here.

    Also note worthy is her DNA is not available as well as fingerprints or dental charts.Why hasn't her family entered them into CODIS.Maybe they are not aware of the system?

    Re: Ellen Linda Akers


    Older brother David Akers, now living in Evansville, Ind., near his mother and stepfather, said February is a particularly difficult month for his family, because Ellen's birthday is Feb. 26. "It brings back old memories, and Mom still wants to bake a birthday cake for her," he said.

    Stepsister Joann Woodley said almost everything she knows about Ellen she was told. "I was only 4 or 5 and I have only one memory of her, but I'm not even sure if it was a dream," she said. "I've never been hopeful that she'll be found alive."


    Investigators think it is likely Ellen Akers is dead. They continue to track down clues and explore new leads with the help of new technology. They hope the public will come forward with some new information about her.
