Details of Disappearance:
Mitchell Hein moved out of his parent's house in Golden, Colorado in 1980. He traveled extensively over the next three years working odd jobs such as rebuilding boats, a car mechanic and work in the oil fields.
He was known to have been in Houston, Texas, Galveston, Texas, Clinton, Oklahoma, Neosho, Missouri, and Indio, California. Mr. Hein would send his parents postcards and would visit once a year during Christmas holidays.
In December, 1982 Mr. Hein came home to Colorado for a visit and abruptly left in late January or early February 1983 without saying goodbye to anyone. He was carrying his clothes and belongings in a black trash bag.
According to a friend, Mr. Hein showed up in Clinton, Oklahoma and then in early March 1983 he hitched a ride with a friend's father to California. When they stopped for the night in Indio, California Mr. Hein left the hotel room and has not been seen or heard from since.
Mitch may have been involved in drugs and was described by some friends as being anti-establishment. It was reported that Mitch had thrown away his driver's license, social security card and may have had no form of identification on him.

There's something about him, maybe that awesome hair... Sounds like a free spirit.
I wonder if he might have suffered from any mental illness, male in his early 20s always makes me think of this possibility. I think it's strange he didn't say goodbye to anyone when he abruptly left his parents' house for the last time. Also, throwing away his driver's license, SS card etc. reminds me of Christopher McCandless...
I think there might be a good chance Mitch is still alive and living somewhere the way he wants to live, whatever that may be.
