In a stroke of luck the investigators actually have a sample of Melissa’s DNA. The hospital where she was born kept her newborn blood sample. So if they find Melissa, there will be no problem confirming her real identity.

So far four women in their mid-twenties matching Melissa’s description have been tested. Three of them were not a match. Detectives are awaiting DNA results on the fourth. House waits patiently for news of her daughter and never stops searching.

“There’s not a young lady that I’ve walked past that I don’t look and wonder,” she said. “I feel one of these days, I’m going to walk up and actually look at myself, just younger. And it’s going to be her.”
