    This man really tweaked my memory of the unidentified guy when I saw his picture:

    David was last seen in 1994 in Fort Walton Beach, FL. The UID was found in 2006 in Ruskin. According to Bing maps, that's 454.6 miles, or 6 hours, 43 minutes worth of travel time. I think that moving nearly 7 hours away would be sufficient if one wanted to start over.

    The FDLE site says he was retired USAF. Don't know if that helps with anything though.

    I tried to email the contact at Fluid database but my email bounced back with out of office reply notice. Does anyone have a free long distance plan that would be interested in calling this one in?

    Here is the NamUs case file for this UID. https://identifyus.org/en/cases/52

    Such a great resemblance ... you'd need to ask a lot of questions around the circumstances of Delbert's disappearance, his medicals/dentals etc. but it looks so promising. Height is right, too. The glasses must have been found with the body, so it's likely that if this is a match, Delbert died soon after his disappearance; it seems to be a stretch that, even if he had no money, he'd be able to keep hold of the same glasses for up to 12 years (or even more if that's not a recent photo)

    There is definitely a resemblance between the reconstruction and Delbert beyond the glasses; so if this is a match, that is great work by the artist.

    I never received a reply from Amanda Whidden, so I just re-sent the submission.

    Carl,

    If you don't hear back again from Amanda Whidden, maybe you should contact the contact listed on Delbert's Charley page, the Okaloosa County Sheriff's office. The number listed is 1-850-651-7410. I looked to see if Delbert is listed in NamUs, he isn't.

    This has to be a match!!!

    Another reconstruction image from Namus.

    David and the other reconstruction are eerily alike. The chin looks different in this other one.
