HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Every day for the past 37 years, Cathy Blevins Howe has wondered about the whereabouts of her 27-year-old sister, who vanished from her Charlotte, N.C., home in July 1975.
Howe had long accepted that her sister, Priscilla Ann Blevins, was likely dead, but was afraid she might go to her own grave without the opportunity to say goodbye. The reality of that fear deepened when her parents, Bob and Sadie Blevins, died in 2002 and 2001, respectively.
The waiting and the fear finally came to an end last month, when the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department contacted Howe and said her sister's remains had been found at the state medical examiner's office in Chapel Hill. The remains, initially identified as "Jane Doe," had been in storage at the facility for more than 20 years. click here to read more
