    At the request of Toby's mother, CarlK did an age progression sketch and posted it on Facebook: https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net...8e&oe=5847F37C

    Here's another version in Dallas Cowboys gear: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

    Almost 20 years. But there's some details missing:

    - Who's birthday party was?
    - Who was the man who threaten to kill him and why? Has the police talked to this man?
    - Who was the female companion? Girlfriend? Friends? Classmates?
    - Was Toby having troubles on the streets or with certain people?

    That's an unusual nickname. Do you know anything about what it means or how he aquired it?

    Using the information that Toby was a big Cowboys fan, I went looking for unidentified Cowboys fans who matched his description. I found http://doenetwork.org/cases/225umky.html, who was found in May 1999 but believed to be deceased for a year or more. Toby disappeared in August 1997*.

    Estimated Age: 25 - 45 years old. Toby was only 18, so he's a bit on the young side.
    Race: Caucasian. Matches.
    Gender: Male. Yep.
    Height: 6'3. Matches.
    Weight: 200-250 lbs. Toby is listed at 210.
    Hair Color: Brown. Matches.
    Eye color: UID's is unknown.
    Cowboys fan: UID wearing a Cowboys jacket.

    Facially, I'm not sure. The reconstruction shows a thin-faced man and in his pictures, Toby appears to have a rather fleshy face. It's not real close. But I don't think there's any structural incompatibility, either. (Click on the attachment to enlarge.)

    The UID's dentals are described this way in Doenet: "A great deal of time and expense had been spent on the dentition of this individual. He had spent thousands of dollars on dental work, including numerous porcelain veneers and crowns."

    Toby's Charley profile: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/c/coleman_toby.html

    And here's an article with some information from Toby's mother: https://missingpersonsofamerica.com/...as-since-1997/

    * Toby's mother indicates he was actually missing in May. The August date is when LE finally agreed to take the missing person report.

    I have no idea why he was called Kutekenta. I googled it but mostly found his MP profile on various sites.

    I was pregnant during 1978-79 when the movie Roots came out. One of the characters african name was kuntekenta and when he came to America he was namedToby. One of his Uncles started calling him that and it just stuck.

    Archangel185: I have no idea who the birthday party was for.I do not know the man who threatened him other than his birthday is may 19. The girl wasjust afriend with a car and she had no useful information as to what happened or where he went after she dropped him off in town close to where the incident occured. Toby was well liked by everyone who knew him.He has lots of family who loves him and we will never give up looking for him no matter what.

    1. My Son left home to go to go hang out at Bills 3 Gs trailer park on May 19,1997 and got in a fight with some guy there having a birthday party. Things started getting crazy and. He(Toby) hit the guy with a beer bottle and it broke. Toby took off running and the guy picked up the broken bottle and threw it at Toby and cut his arm open, The guy hollered at Toby I'm gonna kill you punk. He came home with a Tshirt wrapped around his arm and bleeding badly. I cleaned him up and bandaged his arm I have no idea who the guy was.. He would not call the police, later he called a friend (a girl) and left the house and never came back The girl said she dropped him off and never saw him again and has since moved from the area.. He was 18 so the Police told me He was an adult and he didn't have to come home if he didn't want to. so they wouldn't take a missing persons report until Aug 25 1997. we have submitted DNA for comparison to any unidentified persons they find. It has been 19 years now and they are just now offering a reward for information on old cold cases in the area. If you know anything about his disappearance, Please do the right thing and speak up now.
