Please Share, Endangered Missing! Missing in NYC/NJ! Awareness is the Key to Finally Bring Renee Home!

Renee LaManna went missing on 1/8/1994. Renee was seen in December 1994 at the Chambers Street Subway in Lower Manhattan and May 1995 in Northfield, NJ trying to get money for a bus ticket back to NYC. Renee was a psychiatric emergency when she went missing and was in a psychotic and catatonic state. She has not used her name or social security number since she disappeared 22 years ago, and we believe she is not aware of her identity and may be suffering from amnesia. We are unsure if she is homeless, but is a living unidentified
Jane Doe or using a different identification! If she looks familiar or you have seen her, or see her in the future, please call the number on the flier, 888-RENEE11.
