    He has a phone in his pocket... couldn't they call from that phone and see what number the caller ID says, then trace that phone number to an address/person?

    That is what I thought too for a second, but that photo must have been in his pocket because he was found on a streetcar.

    That's not a cell phone. It has to be charged and near the base unit to work.

    I'd find a matching base at a store that sells that model, charge it (if needed), and see if it contained useful information in the speed dial list or call log. I bet it does. It probably has its own number in it.

    That was my thought. It is obviously a landline phone, but I'm sure they could work with it.

    Whew, so glad they found where he belongs.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)
