    The spring 1995 tour included 2 concerts in Miami and 9 other cities.

    Why are dentals and DNA not available?

    John Paul Skirta, went missing November 10 from Palm Bay, Florda, which I think is a few hundred miles from where the UI was found. The height is off but other characteristics sound similar...

    Did anyone call in John Skirta? I've looked at this one, too and see him as a viable possibility.

    1. He was last seen on Nov 10, 2001. UID was found on Nov 21, 2001 with est DOD one day prior;

    2. His physical description matches the UID. Height and weight slightly off, but we've seen estimates to be incorrect in the past;

    3. He went missing from Palm Harbour, FL. UID found in Miami Dade, FL approx 218 miles away. Johns scent was lost at the side of the road directly out the front of his house, indicating he may have hitched a ride.

    Here is his NAMUS profile. What are your thoughts?

    You cannot unsee what has been seen,
    You cannot unhear what has been heard
