A-6 Santa Cruz Sentinel Friday, Aug. 19, 1983 Bodies found Fathers identify jewelry of missing Swedish girls SANTA MARIA (AP) - The badly decomposed bodies of two women have tentatively been identified as two Swedish women who disappeared July 22 on a tour of California, authorities said. The women's fathers, who have been searching for the daughters in California since Aug. 5, identified jewelry found near the bodies Thursday, said Santa Barbara Sheriff's Sgt. Ralph Ginter. "The fathers flew into Santa Maria tonight and identified jewelry ... as belonging to their daughters," Ginter said late Thursday. "Positive identification will not be made until there is an autopsy and dental charts are compared." Dental records were being sent from Stockholm and an autopsy was scheduled today, authorities said. Marie Lilienberg, 23, and Maria Wahlen, 25, disappeared July 22 after setting out from a friend's home in Redwood City for Los Angeles, authorities said. Their fathers, Ove Lilienberg and Lars Wahlen, flew to California when the girls failed to contact their families or return home. The men were in Redwood City until Thursday evening, when they flew to Santa Maria, said Sheriff's Sgt. Bob Rogers. A deer hunter found the bodies Thursday morning near the Pine Canyon ranger station in a rugged area just east of Santa Maria, said Sheriff's Sgt. Tom Gee. Both bodies were nude and there were no personal effects found except the jewelry, he said. One body was hidden in some brush and the other was found out in the open, he said. They had been there "two to four weeks" but there was no indication of how they died, Gee said. The missing girls traveled together the past three months, and planned to return to Sweden at the end of July. Before leaving the San Francisco area, they telephoned home to outline their plans, which included flying from Los Angeles to New York and spending several days with friends in Connecticut before departing for Sweden, their fathers said. "We knew every move they planned and their home-coming times," Lilienberg said earlier this week. "We would like to know something. The worst thing would be to go back to Sweden and not know anything." Ms. Lilienberg, a physical education student, and Ms. Wahlen, a preschool teacher, met in Colorado during the skiing season and had been traveling together for the past three months on what they called their "American dream trip," financed by loans from their parents. Although his daughter promised in Marie Lilienberg 4 ' M hi i Maria Wahlen her last telephone call that she would not hitchhike any more, Lilienberg said he fears the young women fell victim to foul play while hitchhiking to Los Angeles. Lilienberg said his daughter "got to know America as a friendly country and felt at ease. But she was a bit naive, didn't know the rules that you are probably in danger." $99 Puts You In Renault Alliance iiiiMMi.iiiinm mn JC......u,J &jjktjX !!:) Renault Alliance An jwirtl winnini" -.ilue! .Alliance is Motor Trend's 1983 ( m of the Year. 48 1ST KWT 35 1ST U mileage figures lor comparison .
