Exclamation update on Renee Lamanna

Wow. I didn't think the odds of her being alive at this point were too good, considering she's been missing for over 20 years and disappeared under-dressed in below freezing temperatures, but apparently there have been many recent sightings of her in Asheville, North Carolina (same area Zebb Quinn disappeared from).

Here's a link to her updated CP page. She was also suffering from anorexia nervosa at the time of the disappearance. I have 2 loved ones who suffer from that and know firsthand how much it can take a toll on a person's physical and mental well being.

From one of the Facebook posts I read, it seems she wandered into a gas station in Virginia and told them her name was Renee Laman.

She also told people "I have been looking for my family for a long time. I don't know why they can't find me." She had a suitcase full of worn maps from different states, She also said she's hitchhiking to Florida because that's where her family lives. Her sister, Margaret LaManna, lives in West Palm Beach Florida.

Here are the two photographs of Renee taken.

^thanks for that, the pics of that woman do look like the age progression photo. It has to be her. I'm guessing because she's in a different state than the one she disappeared from and she left off the last two letters to her last name, that's why they had trouble making the connection.

It looks like she's been eating well. I was concerned there as she was only 100 pounds when she vanished.

I feel this case is definitely solvable. Sad to hear she's been looking for her family all these years and couldn't find them. Hopefully they can positively ID her and she can be reunited with her family. She may also need mental help.

This is confusing-is that car & phone hers? If she doesn't know who she is or where her family are then how has she survived for 2 decades?

I see your point. Can't really tell, but the phone looks to be huge, so perhaps it's a dated pic, or she's using an ancient phone.

It's interesting to note the CP page says she disappeared with a blue bathrobe. While it was eventually found, in the pictures she's wearing a blue something-rather. Can't really tell if it's a robe or what, but she appears to be using it as a shawl. Perhaps she has a fondness for blue robes and stuff?

Renee was suffering from anorexia as well as anxiety at the time of her disappearance. An investigator told Action News they found the woman wandering around Asheville, North Carolina. She didn't have ID so they couldn't check her into a shelter, but officers took her to an all-night restaurant so she would be safe. I guess that's how Renee has been living the last 21 years, in all-night restaurants, soup kitchens, ect. Her sister also said truck drivers have been taking care of her. Giving her money and food. It's extremely sad, it makes me wonder how many more of the missing are in situations like her and can't remember who they are or if they are missing.

"Renee suffers from Dissociative Fugue Disorder, a rare disorder where Renee may not know her name or how long she has been away."

Sounds like she may not even be able to explain how she's been living for the past 20 years.

She doesn't have a car (she's hitchhiking) and I'm sure the phone was borrowed from whoever took the photos. It sounds like all she owns are clothes and maps.

Renee's case was definitely one in which I did not suspect the outcome would involve her being found alive, as it seemed she was very mentally unstable at the time of her disappearance. The prospect that she may be alive is a very exciting one. The photographs look a LOT like the composite.

Dang! I hope she didn't slip through our fingers, so to speak. Authorities believe she left for Florida, they may not be aware of her situation down there.

Shouldn't she be in Florida by now? It's been a while since she said she was going down there.

This is the latest article on Renee.

Woman Missing For 21 Years Spotted In Lexington
May 16, 2015

Quote:
Renee LaManna has been spotted several times lately here in Lexington, most recently Thursday. Her family is hoping these most recent sightings could be the ones that will finally bring her home.

LaManna, who has severe amnesia, hasn't been seen by her family since January 8, 1994.

I guess she ended up in Lexington, Kentucky instead of Florida.

Here's a link to where they have a better recent picture of her. Also nice to see the giant, semi-truck size advertisement for her return.

https://twitter.com/reneelamanna

Scroll down a little further, and you can see some advertisements for Christopher and Lisa Zaharias, which I believe is one of the oldest (if not, they oldest) family abduction case on the Charley Project, missing since 1987, as well as some pictures of them I haven't seen, and very recent age-progression photos.

Here's another article with a bunch more interesting info.

Dammit, what happened here? No news in months. I was hoping for and semi-expecting an epic reunion.

This is Renee's official Facebook page. Her sister is getting tips all the time. There have two more sightings of Renee by police officers who gave her a ride. One last year, and one recently. Renee had chapped lips, very sunburnt and overdressed for the weather.
