It is said that his DNA is available and tests are complete. Dentals aren't available for the missing person. The UID has mitochondrial DNA and dentals available.

I don't see it as a match at all. UID estimated to have died in 1987, had brown hair and was certainly below 6' tall. Lango had red hair, was missing less than one month before this UID was found and was 6'1".

I don't know if this thread was intended as a "possible match" or if a general thread. the UID is in Namus with only one rule out Randolph Sedlack:

Mark Weisman reportedly walked with a limp and [IMO] he looks like the reconstruction on NamUs.
Mark's height and weight are about the same as the UID. He would have been 32 in 1987, which is slighter over the estimate of between 23 to 31. There is no mention of a shoulder injury in the UID, though, which Mark reportedly had. Also, I am not sure if he had any ties to New Jersey.
