    I searched for missing men with a horseshoe tattoo and found Joseph Antczak, who went missing from Milwaukee in 1984. I don't know whether he's a good candidate or not.

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/9475/62/
    (UID: http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1542umfl.html)

    height 64": exact match according to Doenet; Namus says 65"

    age in 1997: 77, slightly over the UID's 74-75

    gray hair, blue eyes: exact match

    weight: 120 lbs, versus UID's 93 lbs. (That's awfully light. I wonder if malnutrition contributed to his death?)

    facial resemblance: they seem to have the same overall look and style, including big ears.

    Negatives: Antczak has several other tattoos not mentioned on the UID. He has a hip replacement and bad leg that isn't mentioned for the UID.

    What do you think? Close enough to check whether the UID's information is incomplete?
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    In those pictures, they look nothing alike to me.

    I think it's a good match. Maybe they didn't mention all of the UID's tattoos. I would submit it.

    I see similarities. Since the UID is a reconstruction, it may not look like an exact match.
    IMO JMO
