    One potential match who fits the demographics and timeline fairly well is Steven Needham http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...Steven+needham
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/n/needham_steven.html

    He suffered from schizophrenia and alcholism and went missing from a rehab facility on the other side of the state (Bellevue) in late October 1994.

    Another part of me thinks this UID was not from the NW because of the boots. White's boots are made in Spokane and very popular there. Danner boots are from Oregon and also quite popular as well as all of the major workboot brands like Red Wing (afaik this was all the same in '94 as these are established companies). Corcoran appears to be based in Pennsylvania. While I'm sure they're sold throughout the county there is a lot of loyalty to regional brands in the area. They also look like they may have been military issued which would also make our pool of potential matches large.
