    NamUs states the upper body was skeletal and he was measured at 130 lbs - probably safe to add some weight to that estimate if that's the case. The clothing and shoe sizes do point to him being a smaller guy, though.

    This guy caught my eye: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...en_steven.html I'm taking some liberty with the hair color, as I've seen dark brown called black and visa versa, and what would have brought him to Malibu from San Francisco, I have no idea, but he fits the parameters.

    Bill Paulson went missing in March of 1985. No clothing description, height and weight aren't quite correct but close.
    Where's Logan Tucker?

    The timeline works too. This PM sounds really good.

    Both men have DNA in NamUs, but I don't think it's a rule-out just yet. We don't know what type of DNA they have in the system; if one has nDNA and the other mtDNA, it won't trigger a match. This is worth calling in, just to be sure.

    (Somewhat off topic, but this is why I'm so frustrated that NamUs no longer allows civilians to see what type of DNA they have in the system.)

    Those look like a good match to me. And in the photos, I would actually have called David's hair black. It's very dark. Maybe he decided to take off and hitchhike across country. This UID is a long way from Michigan but I don't think he can be ruled out solely on that.

    Has David Bruce Rea been called in as a potential match for the UID?
