Remains of a missing girl in 1984 met in rural Colorado

Jonelle Mathews was 12 when a singing concert disappeared after singing in 1984. No arrests have occurred.

The Greek Police Department said on Thursday that human remains found in rural Colorado this year have been identified as Johnelle Mathew, who had disappeared in 1984.

The police department said in a statement that teams of Rural Weld County worked on a pipeline, which appeared on human remains on Tuesday and officials identified the remains.

No arrests have been made.

"It seems that he has been there for a long time," said Greek police spokesman Sergeant. Which Timkowic told the Greeley Tribune.

The area in which the remains were found is now full of oil and gas wells, but in 1984, it will be "acres and one acre of land", they told the newspaper.

After performing at the Christmas festival on December 20, 1984, Zonal disappeared from his house. A friend and his friend's father last seen him when they left, Denver's NBC affiliate KUSA reported.

When his parents returned home after an hour, they got shoes from Johnlie but his daughter did not. The front door was open and the television was on.

According to Kusla, John's parents organized a memorial service 10 years after the disappearance of the zonal.

Gloria Mathews's mother of the missing girl said before the service in 1994, "We have never said goodbye, and it is kind of closed."

"Because it is most likely that he is dead, our hearts are tired of closing it and still hope. Hope's thread, let's suppose I bury that hope. "Gloria Mathews told the station at the time.

The police department said on Thursday that residues were identified on the basis of evidence found there, as well as an examination conducted by Weld County Coroner's Office.

Zonal's sister, Jennifer Mogensen, who now lives in the state of Washington, told KUSA that "it is still a bit unreal."

"This is proximity to me and my family, but now it also raises new questions," he said. "It is sad, we are sad."

Months after Zonal's disappearance, then-President Ronald Reagan mentioned this matter, told the Associated Press.

His administration helped open a national center for the missing children, in which there was a free hotline, and the President urged members of the National Press Association to publish images of missing children as "mission of kindness".

Reagan said at the time that Joanel had "celebrated a happy 13th birthday with his family last month." But five days before Christmas, according to Zonal AP, "disappeared from his house."

Greeley police said that the investigation is still open and active and anyone has asked to contact the police.

Greece is a town of about 92,800 in the north of Denver.
