Jamie Rochelle Grissim (born November 11, 1955) was a teenager who went missing in 1971 after leaving Fort Vancouver High School. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance. Her latest age progression depicts her at 56.

Case

Jamie left her home in Vancouver, Washington on the morning of December 7, 1971. She went to Fort Vancouver High School, which was about two miles from her house.

Jamie arrived at school and attended her two classes. She told her foster mother she would walk home and would arrive at 1:00 or 1:30 PM. However, she did not arrive home and has not been heard from since.

In May 1972, Jamie's purse, identification, and other items were found in a wooded area beside a road in the Dole Valley area of Clark County, northeast of Vancouver.

Authorities initially believed Jamie was a runaway. She is now believed to be the first victim of a suspected serial rapist and killer, Warren Leslie Forrest. Forrest is convicted of one murder and believed to be responsible for six others.
