Jeffrey Scott Walkenford
Walkenford

Walkenford, 41, disappeared from Juneau, Alaska on May 15, 2010. In September 2016, hikers found human remains about 50 feet off a trail in a large, flat area with many lakes and ponds. The area had been previously searched, but authorities believe the thick foliage may have concealed Walkenford's body. Although the body hasn't been officially identified and the identification may take up to six months, investigators are "fairly certain" it's his remains, because near the body they found clothing like the clothes he was last seen wearing, as well as a cellular phone with photographs of Walkenford stored on it.

Cynthia Louise Day
Day

Day, 37, disappeared from National City, Illinois on August 10, 1990. Her remains were found in a secluded area of Pike County, Missouri only sixteen days after she disappeared, but she went unidentified for 26 years. Police boiled the corpse's bones in order to preserve them -- a common practice at the time, meant to preserve them -- and in the process destroyed the soft tissue and therefore the DNA. However, in July 2016, police discovered an overlooked thumbprint from the Pike County body and were able to match it to Day. Her case is being investigated as a homicide.
