    glitter2 Huntington Beach hit-and-run victim remains Jane Doe after 25 years




    You’d think with so many clues, we’d know who this girl was.

    But we don’t.

    She was found dead just minutes after being struck by a car on the Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach. She had no ID on her.

    According to news coverage that followed her death on April 1, 1990, there were at least two individuals who recognized the girl as “Andrea,” but they didn’t know her last name or birth date.
    They recalled she mentioned being adopted, and that Virginia was her home. But despite significant efforts over the past 25 years, law enforcement has been unable to find out who she was.

    Some of the clues Jane Doe left behind are unique. This is what was found with her that night:

    A ring of human hair on her left pinky finger
    An orange plastic hotel-like key tag imprinted with “218” in white with one gold key attached
    A black rock, a leaf and a lock of human hair in her pocket
    An Orange County bus route schedule for the 64 and 64A bus from Santa Ana to Seal Beach


    Jane Doe had short, wavy brown hair and brown eyes. She had slight acne scarring on her face, her ears were each pierced and she had black polish on her toes.
    All four wisdom teeth were missing and she had porcelain crowns on her top center four teeth.

    She was found wearing a black dress, a red, long-sleeved top and a hot pink sweater. She had on black, fishnet stockings and hot pink pumps.

    Investigators have chased down scores of leads, but nothing has panned out yet. Twenty-five years later and this girl still remains nameless. If you have any information regarding Jane Huntington Beach Doe, please call the Huntington Beach Police Department at 714-960-8811, the Orange County Coroner at 714-647-7400 or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).

    The article above was released by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

    Accident victim 4/1/1990 Pacific Coast Highway west of Newland, Huntington Beach CA







    FEATURES: Black dress, fishnet stockings, pink sweater, black nail toe polish, 40D Bra, size 6 shoe size, human hair ring on left ring finger, acne scars/ face, restorations on back of top front 4 teeth. Her teeth showed signs of previous orthodontics and she had received dental care shortly before her death.

    This unidentified young woman died around 10 pm on April 1, 1990 while crossing Pacific Coast Highway west of Newland, Huntington Beach, California. She died at the scene of a broken neck.

    She was Caucasian and estimated to be between 18 to 30 with a closer estimate of 17-21.

    She had brown hair and brown eyes, was 5'4" and 122 lbs. She had acne scars on her face, was well nourished and large breasted.


    When found she was wearing a pink sweater, a red long-sleeved shirt, a black cotton dress, fishnet stockings, a 40D bra and size 6 pink shoes.

    She had a ring made of human hair on her left ring finger.




    Dental information: PFM jackets on back of #7-10. Restorations #2,15,19,20. Missing #6,11,21,28-spaces closed. Missing wisdom teeth. Porcelain dental work. Prior orthodontics.

    After her sketch was published in a local newspaper, two men came forward saying they had met the victim a couple weeks before her death. Both said they only knew her by her first name, Andrea.

    According to them Andrea said she was from the East Coast.

    The first man said he had befriended her two weeks before the accident. Both had shared the same car while hitchhiking on Pacific Coast Highway.

    He was 100% positive that was the same person. He said Andrea told him she was adopted and trying to find her real family.

    He added that she told him she was from somewhere like Virginia but told a woman she was from New York. Though she claimed to be 25-26, he thought she appeared as young as 16.

    The second man said Andrea spent one night at his house. He said she had no place to stay at and no money for food or clothing so he let her use one bed room, fed her and gave her some money.

    Andrea then bought clothes at a Goodwill store, including a pair of shoes for $19.95 that she was wearing at the time of her death. He said she had told him her parents were pretty well-known but she didn't want to say who they were and that she had been adopted at a very young age.

    He also said that the ring made of hair she had was of her own hair that she had cut in front of him and then placed on her finger.

    Maybe they should check if Ilene Misheloff could be a match, although she was a bit younger. She looks like the sketch, had braces and also has missing teeth next to her 4 front teeth.

    "He also said that the ring made of hair she had was of her own hair that she had cut in front of him and then placed on her finger."

    Did forensic experts check if the ring of hair was made only from her own hair?
