    I have never heard of this either, and have lived here my whole life.

  2. Deb Tinker says:

    Have not heard about this.

  3. So little information too. You would think since it happened 2010 with cell phones and social media there would be more photos and more info. Where was she last seen? What time of day did she go missing?

  4. Are you sure this case is still active?

  5. Angie Wunder says:

    I am extremely sad to hear this young ladies disappearance went mostly unknown to the people in her relatively small community. This poor girl and her family.

  6. Denise Lynn says:

    Doesn’t anyone have a better photo of this little girl?

    • Denise, my team members and I have searched to no avail to find a better picture of Yerlanin. It might sound crazy to say this, but she’s actually one of the “lucky” ones who at least has “some” type of photo on the IDPS MPIC site. How is one to identify a missing person if one doesn’t know what he/she looks like? As of this moment there are 328 individuals listed on the MPIC site. There are just 32 photos of the MPs. More than 90% of cases there have no vic photo. I have 91 MP photos listed on ICC and have (more than once) forwarded many of them to MPIC, stating exactly where I obtained the photo (the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office or Des Moines PD, etc.) The photos don’t get added, which is discouraging because one of these photos might help identify a MP before it’s too late. I know the IDPS is busy and backlogged with work, but so am I. Still, photos are critical to these MP cases.
