MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- An Ohio woman suspected to be Alexis Patterson, a Milwaukee 7-year-old girl who went missing in 2002, has agreed to giving DNA samples in the hopes of finding the truth.

Bryan Ohio police told WISN that they received a tip from the woman’s ex-husband who says she resembles the missing girl. He also said that the woman remembers little of her life before age 10.

The woman’s name has not been revealed in order to protect her identity, but she is 28 years old and a mother of two.

The woman has a scar under one eye and a bump on her pinky finger, which fits the same description as the missing Milwaukee girl.

The DNA results are expected to be available in 10 days.

The woman, who doesn’t believe she’s the missing girl, gave the sample voluntarily, WXIN reports.
