    OR - James 'Jim' McAleavey, 29, Ashland, Spring 1995

    James (Jim) Martin McAleavey 29, Ashland OR Spring 1995 - Brown hair, hazel eyes Height 6'3" 180-200lbs; no scars or broken bones that sister can remember. Carl pointed out that Jim had very distinctive teeth.

    Sister last saw him the winter of 1994, he was living in Ashland, Oregon. Sometime in the Spring of 1995, he told his mother he was going to Georgia to see his friend Michael. It is not known if he hitched or if someone bought him a plane ticket to Georgia as he did not own a car. He has not been seen since. Family has checked his social with the social security administration to find no record of it's use nor that he's been reported deceased.

    His sister recently reported him missing to Ashland OR police

    I entered Jim in NamUs, profile is not online yet. We're waiting for a case worker as it looks like Janet Franson is no longer with NamUs.

    Thank you to SCHMAE for putting his sister in touch with me

    So sad to go so long with no contact. That is good news that he's not been reported deceased but not so great that there has been no use of his SS number.
    Where are you , Jim?

    Thank you so much to both of you for all of your help. All these years of searching and maybe now I can get closure. God bless you both!

    You're very welcome
    Praying we get a case worker quickly so that your DNA can be taken to start the process. It was taking 6 months to process DNA. The last person I know to have given DNA was processed in 15 weeks. It seems like they added another step; once it's processed, it goes to comparison.

    It's taking so long because so many people have found NamUs to add their loved ones. This year alone has had more MP/UP matches then any I can remember!

    Do you mean they take a relative's DNA to see if anything in any system matches it since he's been missing since way before DNA was used for anything?

    I have to run to an appointment, but yes, it gets run against a few databases, UNT, CODIS. UNT will give a suggestion that will then have to be looked at by humans vs CODIS that gives a cold hit

    Just to let you know, I am in Texas and a friend of mine (also in Texas) just shared your Facebook post, so it is being shared across the country.

    I can't find James in NaMus or any other online sites, and I can't find any MSM reports about him.

    Handsome guy. He's been missing for so long, I hope he is still alive somewhere out there.
