    CA - Cengiz Han Nuray, 17, Santa Cruz, April 1995

    Sorry if this is in the wrong spot. I've never posted one of these before- I've only posted things in already existing threads.

    During my searches on the Grateful Dead Fan UID I ran across Cengiz, and then ran across a UID who was located in Georgia and the features are eerily similar (to me at least).

    Cengiz here @ WS:

    Georgia UID @ a Grateful Dead site dedicated to missing/uid fans:

    Same UID @ Identifyus.org (Morgue photo shown):
    https://identifyus.org/?p=case&i=691...SC&from=search

    Keep in mind the UID is extremely emaciated. He lost 100 lbs. during the year he was hospitalized prior to his death. The tattoos have also been said to look recent (perhaps within the few months Cengiz went missing and the UID found?).

    I think that definitely could be him!
    They both have the same distinct eyebrows and facial hair. The tattoos really do look new so he could have gotten them in the few months inbetween.
    I see a ton of similarities and not much that makes me think this isn't a match, personally I would try to figure out who to send this in to?

    Maybe wait until someone else posts too because I tend to miss important details sometimes but I really think this guy in Atlanta might be Cengiz Nuray.

    I too noticed the eyebrows right off, they really stand out to me. I think you should pass this on if he hasn't been ruled out as a match.

    I think this is a good possibility of a match. IMO, you should follow through and turn it in. If you need help, let me know. Great job !! Keep us posted !!

    I've never turned anything in and really don't know how to or what info is all needed. Any help in doing so is greatly appreciated.

    //edit

    I've also found this other picture of him on Charley Project.

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/n/nuray_cengiz.html

    It seems to show that curve on the outer right eyebrow a bit more (our left-his right lol). His nose looks the same as well.

    I would contact Charley project or Doenetwork via phone and e mail your links. Never have I seen so close a match. I just know this has to be him.

    The Greatful Dead UID has it's own forum now... all info should be put in there

    This is a potential match for another UID that was found while Vask was researching the Greatful Dead UID, so really belongs in its own forum, I think? Although this young man has also been suggested as a possible for the Greatful Dead, this is an altogether different possible match. And a very good possibility, I believe.

    You can really see that his nose is off center in that last photo also, just like the John Doe. I will be really surprised if this is not him.

    It also looks like there is a small cleft in the chin of both men, but it's hard to tell on Nuray because of the facial hair.

    Thanks guys. I sent this off this morning to the email specified at Doenetwork for reporting potential matches..

    While doing research for another UID I came across a potential match which is eerily similar in both time frame and physical appearance to Cengiz Han Nuray.

    Cengiz Han Nuray - DoeNetwork 1193DMCA
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1193dmca.html

    Georgia UID - DoeNetwork 178UMGA
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/178umga.html

    The same UID on NamUS with included morgue photo:
    https://identifyus.org/?p=case&i=691...SC&from=search

    The UID reports lists the Georgia UID as having recent tattoos, which I believe could have been done within the few month time frame after Cengiz was reported missing.

    Please let me know if anything comes of this or if there's anything else you'd like me to do.

    Thank you,

    Should I call any of the agencies as well or let Doenetwork handle it all?

    Vask,

    When I thought I had potential matches (no luck so far) I contacted just the Doe Network, and they responded within a few days. I think it wouldn't hurt to contact the other agencies listed, it can't hurt. I think you got a match!! Good job sleuthing!!

    Thanks. I just wasn't sure if it would seem like I'm pestering them, but I guess when it comes to locating the missing and identifying the unidentified you should pull out all stops and make them look.
