HANNIBAL, Mo. -- Two people are being sought in connection with the Sept. 15, 2013, discovery of the body of an unidentified woman, known only as Jane Doe, in the Mississippi River just south of Hannibal.

The Marion County Sheriff's Department said witnesses reported they saw the woman, who is Hispanic, on Sept. 8, 2013, at the Mark Twain Cave and Gift Shop with a white man and a white woman.

The man is described as very tall with tanned skin and blond hair. He was wearing an orange Iowa Rodeo cutoff T-shirt, shirts and work boots. The woman is described as short, between 18 and 22 years old, and with blonde hair with streaks. She was wearing a yellow shirt or tank top and gray shorts with yellow trim.

The body was clad in an extra-large pink, purple, navy and yellow-striped blouse and size 13/14 Ariya-brand jeans. She also was in possession of a ring. The woman, who is between 5 feet, 2 inches and 5 feet, 4 inches and 130 and 140 pounds, has brown hair and brown eyes.

The Sheriff's Department, along with the Missouri State Highway Patrol, released the information in an effort to identify the body.

They are asking the families of missing people who believe the Jane Doe may be the missing individual to do the following:

Submit DNA samples to the agency that took the original missing person's report.

File a missing person's report for those they think might by Jane Doe, whom they have not had contact with since late 2013.

Include as much information they can, including scars, marks, tattoos, photos, associated financial information, dental records, etc.

Police also are asking that anyone who may have visited the Mark Twain Cave, the gift shop and/or the Mark Twain Dinette on Sept. 8, 2013, and paid with cash to come forward with any information they might have, including photos. Anyone who may have seen the individuals in the Hannibal area is also asked to come forward.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Marion County Sheriff's Department at 573-769-2077 or the Missouri State Highway Patrol at 660-385-2132.
