Nancy Daniel: Skeletal remains found in 1977 in Central Florida identified

ORLANDO, Fla. - In 1977, the skeletal remains of two young women were found by Lake Mann in the Parramore, Fla., area.

Nobody knew who they were until last month.

One half of this double cold case has been solved, but law enforcement officials want the public's help identifying the other half.

It started in 1976, when 14-year-old Nancy Daniel disappeared. Her family thought she might have run away

"To tell you the truth, I thought she left to start a new life. Met someone and started a new life," said her sister, Eugenia Oliver.

But just last month, Daniel's family learned she didn't run away. Her skeletal remains had been identified.

Daniel's case was solved when two retired investigators from Arizona took an interest.

They started digging, got Daniel's name from the files and used technology not available in the 1970s to identify that set of remains. 

Daniel liked to frequent an arcade called the Wooden Nickel back in the 1970s.
