    I think Jason has a quite significant nose, Timothy's nose is totally different IMO.

    Did they interview any hikers or people who were at the park that day? The park staff, etc. Had anyone else disappeared from that park before? Did they bring cadaver/search dogs into the initial search?

    I stumbled upon this old case last night. On here I read he had picked up a 6-pack of soda and a full container of juice before his arrival at the park. After his trip to Wendy's. I wonder if he could have been meeting someone there, and the drinks were to be shared. If it was regular grocery shopping I would find it more likely he'd pick it up on the way back to his apartment.

    Has it ever been mentioned if the friend he was looking for an apartment with a man/woman or one of the roommates he was currently living with? It just feels like he went to meet someone there with buying all those refreshments.

    This article from 2014 has very detailed info about his activites that day and insight from his mother and close friend Amanda:

    http://www.greenvilleonline.com/stor...d-son/7625657/

    Interesting points I hadn't read elsewhere:

    1) Lake has been drained for maintenance and trails reworked. No sign of him anywhere. An account from a hiker who fell off a cliff and landed on a ledge. Was rescued but showed how an accident could happen, and he still couldn't be found.
    2) His close friend Amanda had seen him just days prior and described him as in good spirits. I see references to some described him as depressed but not who. She and his mother said he was obsessive about taking off the cover to the stereo where it could be seen and would leave a diner to do it if he could see it from inside. His car was found locked with the stereo cover attached which Amanda found very strange and out of character. He arrived b/t 3-5PM I believe.
    3) His roommates had gone out of town for the Easter weekend. The last one saw him watching a movie the night before and left. When they returned they assumed he had simply gone out of town. Explains why they didn't see him that day or would know where he was going.
    4) Still no mention of who the friend is he was looking for an apartment with or what that person had to say.
    5) He ate at a Wendy's close to his apartment and picked up a 6-pack of root beer and a large container of juice on the way there. His fingerprints were on park admission ticket. No mention of whether all the drinks were found in the car.
    6) He was described as more of a mountain biker than a hiker, but Amanda thought he could have gone to hike. He was parked in the front row next to the lake. I'm not familiar with it but could he have gone perhaps to watch a sunset and not to hike? With someone?

    A 6-pack of root beer and a large container of juice seem like a lot of liquid provisions to take for a hike by just one person. I'm really curious if they were still in the car or if he took some out.

    I'm just wondering if it has ever been discussed who this friend was he was looking for an apartment with and if he could have been planning to meet up with this friend.

    I agree, a great deal of liquid to consume for one person. If he arrived between 3-5 PM, that is somewhat late to start a hike. His friend Amanda, I believe, felt that if he left the cover on his car radio (the face plate) he knew he was not coming back. But why?
