    What does everyone think of Chester Wetmore--http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/102dmfl.html? He would've been 15 but his height and hair colour match. Listed as an endangered runaway.

    ETA: Someone confessed to Westmore's murder but his body was never found, so probably not him.

    Here's his NCMEC page and poster:

    The investigation revealed that the vehicle had originally been stolen from a car dealership in Clearwater, Florida and witnesses remember seeing the vehicle at a gas station in Brooksville, Florida shortly before the accident. Witnesses described the driver as being a white male with Italian features, dark, medium length hair, slender build and stated he was wearing blue jeans but no shirt. A Forensic Anthropologist examined the male and reported he was white, 16-18 years old and stood 5’9” – 6’01” tall. Several of his teeth were damaged in the accident but one tooth had a recent root canal where the treatment may not have been completed.

    Timothy Guy doesn't have a "slim build" but he somewhat resembles the recon and his other stats are in line:

    I looked at Timothy Guy, but he was mentally challenged and so I can't see him traveling that far alone and stealing a car. Not to mention, he's presumed murdered by a mysterious male he was last seen with.

    I've searched through every Southern state and haven't found anything. I'm thinking he's more North or not listed missing for whatever reason.

    I'm thinking he's local, possibly from Pinellas County (where I am from) Clearwater area. The fact that he took the corvette from the dealership, and I'm guessing it was possibly Lokey on Gulf to Bay. I believe they had corvettes back then. The other major dealership would have been Dayton Andrews on US 19. If this is true then he may not have been reported missing and his family just figured he ran away. I've seen it before on cases.

    It is possible he came from another state but how did he get here? Hitchhiked? Bus? I guess anything's possible but I just get a feeling he was from this area or had family over here.

    Yeah, I'm not set on him. Although there's nothing to really suggest foul play. He had a learning disability but could have run off with the mystery guy.

    A new article on this case...

    http://wfla.com/2015/12/20/cold-case...-unidentified/

    TAMPA, FL (WFLA) – When forensics professionals gathered at the University of South Florida this summer, they worked to identify nine ‘cold case’ victims – nine unsolved homicide cases that happened in the Tampa Bay area. They worked to restore the victims’ face and help identify them.

    This unidentified teen was found in Alachua County. Hi died on Nov. 6 1987. Around 11:50 a.m. that day he was driving a 1986 black Chevrolet Convertible going north on Interstate 75.

    Timothy Guy isn't listed as a rule out. I think he resembles the recon enough to submit. If for no other reason than to confirm a rule out.
