    Case History

    west of Amboy, California, on April 27, 1975.

    I think he may match Michael Lee Pickering http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/4939dmca.html https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/26804/0/

    He's missing from Victorville, CA since April 16, 1971. (Which fits in with the remains being skeletal.) The decedent had a wooden nickle from the Victorville Lunch House in his pocket. Amboy is about 1 hour 40 minutes from Victorville. Michael was going to hitchhike to San Francisco, so that distance would not be difficult.
    20 years old fits in with the age range.
    5'6" - 5'8" Michael was 6ft. so that's above this height estimate, but we've seen them be wrong before.


    There are a few other UID's that I found in the correct time frame closer to San Francisco that might match Michael (and his red hair.) but that nickle from Victorville caught my attention.

    What do you guys think?

    Submit this match in Doe Network no?
