    Michael Gaughan looks very possible to me (height is a bit low, but possibly still growing when he left home at 17?). That zig-zag scar he was to have on his left forearm could easily be that zig-zag over "Mike & Barb" on the sketch of the tattoo on the UID's left forearm. Oh, and he's a Libra...

    Thoughts ?

    Michael Gaughan had a chipped tooth, but the profile of the body without identity no mention of this chipped tooth.

    No mention of it doesn't mean it's not chipped. I'd only rule this out (personally) if there was something that implied "perfect teeth" on the UID.

    I'm in Canada, but if there's any spark of interest from anyone a bit more local (Maryland, anyone?) they might feel compelled to look into this...

    it seems me strange that an important detail is not inserted in Namus; however I have noticed that Namus is not updated, several resolved cases of disappearance are still in the database of the site.
