    This was all I could find on Hal Dunn

    Hal Dunn

    ROBERTA, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - In January 1987, Hal Dunn went missing after running away from sheriff's deputies and no one has seen him since.
    Back then, Hal Dunn enjoyed country living in Crawford County. He was a hunter, a fisherman, and at the end of the day a "mama' boy."
    "Any time he needed money, she'd give it to him. If she didn't give it to him, she'd expect me to give it to him because she wasn't home," Brenda Bassett, Dunn's older sister, said.

    She says although the 23-year-old was fun and loving -- he had a dark secret.

    "He said they were doing drugs, they were shooting up. I mean Hal did have a problem with drugs and stuff. We didn't know how bad," Bassett said.
    Then sheriff, Kerry Dunaway, pulled Dunn and a friend, Richard Reese, over on what was Bostick Road. They ran off into nearby woods, and Dunn was never heard from again.

    "They were doing drugs and both boys took off running," Bassett said.
    "His brother came to the sheriff's office and reported him missing on January 28, 1987 at 8 p.m," Crawford Sheriff Lewis Walker said.

    This MP does't seem like a good match for our UID because, e.g. he's a little-ish guy, but I'm also not convinced he's not out there somewhere.
    His hair also doesn't look very red....

    There's a James Howard Dunn age 51 in Florida, according to Intelius.

    There's a lotta James Howard Dunns, not to mention a famous actor.

    There's James Hal Dunns....

    There's a bunch of James Harold Dunns....... Hal is usually the nickname for Harold, not Howard.

    The James H Dunn NAMUS profile says there is DNA available, but not yet submitted.
    It also seems likely that given the number of namesakes, relative DNA could be had.

    I doubt this is our UID, and I'm not going to pursue this MP any further, but I'm still open to continue, if requested. In the meantime,
