    Denver Colo. (AP) The mystery surrounding the disappearance of a Wyoming girl from a Connecticut summer camp 10 years ago defied solution again Sunday.

    A dental surgeon, Dr. avid N. Berman, and a pathologist, Dr. George I. Ogura, said an examination of bones found near Arizona's Grand Canyon in 1958 indicated they were not the skeletal remains of Connie Smith, grandaughter of former Wyoming Governor Nels. H. Smith. They said undersheriff Clark Cole of Coconino County, Ariz. concurred in their findings.

    Connie vanished from camp in 1952 at the age of 10.

    Her father, Peter Smith of Newcastle, Wyo. said he had felt that Connie was a victim of amnesia and would someday turn up alive.

    The girl's mother died last December, apparently of a heart attack.

    The undersheriff arrived in Denver Saturday from Spearfish, S.D. with the skull of the skeleton found in Arizona, 2,500 miles from the Connecticut camp.

    So, about 41 kids would have it in 8200.... or 1 in 200... If I did my math right (no telling.... Ha!)

    Her choice of clothing, if it was her choice, confuses me. If she was from the area, was it just chilly enough to make her wear the sweater ?? The capri pants I relate with warmer weather, but weren't they in style then, so the younger girls would wear them even if they froze to death, right ??

    Would it be safe to say that Little Miss X was established to be
    Caucazoid-Mongoloid? Dr. Turner came to that conclusion based upon
    the skull which is now mostly missing. Sheriff Guilliland's cold case
    group has sent hair and a piece of the skull off for DNA sampling for
    comparison with a Native American family who said that a member of
    their family went missing in 1958. The member was of the right age.
    It will probably take a while for the comparison due to the low priority.

    star2 Help Sought !!!! Newport, Rhode Island

    On the off chance, and it is unlikely that this coould be her,but last night I was looking in some old newspaper archives (big surprise there) and I seen an article about people missing in Newport, Rhode Island. It mentioned a 13-year-old girl that went missing there in 1958 that was stillmissing when the article came out in 1973. Need to find out what that girl's name was please. I know nothing else about it as of right now.
