CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Test results are back for the remaining DNA sample from a woman family members believed could be Elizabeth Gill.

The toddler disappeared from the yard of her home on South Lorimer Street in Cape Girardeau in 1965.

Although the DNA was not a match, the Gill family says it helped establish another interesting connection.

This woman is looking for her biological family, and grew up in a Midwestern town a few hundred miles from Cape Girardeau.

She knows very little about her real family and feels she may have been kidnapped and sold just as Gill's family believes could have happened to Beth.

It turns out a police report surfaced in that town just after Beth went missing.  The report established several possible links between this woman's case and clues related to Beth's case. 

Now, the Gill family's private investigator out of Florida and Cape Girardeau police are working to see if there's anymore too it.

Investigators for the Gill's recently used another old police report to track down more information on four so called travelers known to be staying at motel not far from the Gill's home when the little girl vanished.

Gill's sister, Martha Hamilton, is at a Team Hope meeting in Texas which is an organization that specializes in resources for missing person's family.  They feel in spite of a negative match every day they are still closer to finding Elizabeth.
