I just checked and couldn't find an address for the Pioneer Mental Health facility in Bellevue, looks like it doesn't even exist anymore these days. I had a look at Bellevue via Google Maps...there are quite a few big(ger) parks...maybe he went to one, took his own life and his remains have never been found. I know that young schizophrenic people have a pretty high suicide rate.
