    The only one who comes remotely close to this UID is William Henry Ellis. He is from Baltimore Maryland missing since July 1971.

    This is from doing a search in NAMUS.



    He may have been the missing person from Baltimore Maryland mentioned in the article.

    Snipped--Police received responses from Baltimore, MD and West Virginia. Both inquiries were ruled out.

    I wonder if he was compared to this UID.

    I don't see this man in NamUs at all, so I tried to email the person in charge of his case (the one listed on DoeNet) but I got a mailer daemon notice. I'll keep trying to find a way to contact them via email, though, unless someone is willing to call them for me and suggest that they add him to NamUs.

    I really like William Ellis for this UID though.
