    FL - Sandy Seligman, 26, Miami, 17 August 1980 - from Canada

    This is a (new) case that has not been entered into NamUs yet but will be soon. I am in contact with the Detective on the case so if anyone has any questions or can help in any way please let me know.

    Here is what is known that I can publicly list:

    Name: Sandy Seligman
    White Male
    Height: 5'11
    Weight:165 lbs
    Hair Color: blonde hair
    Eye Color: hazel eyes
    Date Of Birth: 12/17/1953



    He is a Canadian National that lived in Vancouver, Canada. He called his mother from Miami on August 15, 1980 to arrange for her to pick him up at the bus terminal upon his arrival to Vancouver. Sandy returned his rental car to Hertz at Miami International Airport on August 17,1980 and was supposed to board Eastern Airlines flight to Seattle on the same day. The initial investigator assigned to the case, verified the passenger log and determined Sandy never made the flight. He has not been seen since.

    Does anyone have a subscription to Ancestry.com who might be able to take a look and see if they have any useful info?

    Possible match?

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1119umfl.html

    Timeline is spot on
    Age is within range

    Weight is way off - Although I'm really questioning the weight listed - 112lbs for a 21-35 year old 6'1" man??


    CarlK mentioned that they have lost the body and the case files on this Doe....

    Maybe ?

    This John Doe was found about 30 minutes from miami international airport. Although I'm not sure where he would have been for months? It sounds like to me he had every intention of going home?

    Estimated time of death Per NamUs would be 3 weeks or longer. Not sure how much longer? Doe Network has 6-8 weeks prior to discovery.


    Age is within range
    Height is in Range
    Weight is in Range
    (according to Doe Network)

    I'm not sure about the reconstruction though... I am thinking there are similarities in the chin area?

    I think some parts of the missing mans face resemble different sketches/reconstructions. Wish they had a picture of the UIDs teeth!

    Usually, one would take the shuttle to the airport after dropping off a rental car. Either someone decided to drive him from the rental place to the airport to see him off or there was no shuttle?

    Very strange that this disappearance happened in such a small window of time--- between dropping off the rental and the flight. I wonder what time he dropped off the car and the time his flight was leaving. How much time between the two? Maybe he met someone in the rental car place (another customer?) and he took off with them for some reason. It turned out to be his worst nightmare. Just a thought.

    How close is the rental place to the beach? Could he have decided to take one last swim and drowned in the ocean? It may sound way out of the box, but we do have a lot of people drown around where I live so it often comes up as a possibility in my thought process.

    Strange case. No info out there on google or archives about him missing. There where a few foreign tourist murders in Miami that made big news between 1987-1993. No missing or homicides in the news I could find in 1980 although there was a news article about a miami dade officer shooting a PA tourist later in 1980 who was acting bizarre.

    Hope we can get some more info on this when it goes on namus.
