A 3-year-old girl disappeared from her Algiers home over 40 years ago. Here’s what she may look like now.

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — Ramona Brown disappeared from her Algiers home when she was 3 years old in 1984. Now, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is hoping an age-progressed photo could help lead investigators to answers.

The NCMEC reported that Brown disappeared after a fire destroyed her home on March 6, 1984.

NCMEC leaders said investigators initially thought she had died, but no remains were found in the debris from the fire.

According to the NCMEC, Brown’s sister, who was 6 years old at the time, said she was outside the home with Brown after the fire when a couple in a gold car stopped to help.

They said Brown’s sister, “told the police that she saw Ramona get into their car.”

On Wednesday, The NCMEC and the New Orleans Police Department released an age-progressed image of what Brown may look like 40 years later.

Anyone with information about the case can call the NCMEC at 1-800-843-5678 or the NOPD Special Victim’s Division at 504-658-6040-6795.
