I wish there was a better picture of him. :-( He looks like an alien in the only one that's available.
you are right ...what a terribly poor picture.
george would be about 40 now. wonder why the case was reopened in nov 2005. could there be some new evidence?
I tried to find more information. Apparently there was an article (it's no longer available), but you can see the title of it only when you click a link. His brother is looking for him, so maybe that is why the case was reopened.
Again, the article isn't there, but the title bar of the page can be read. :/
Baltimore Afro-American - Jun 7, 1969
George lived at 1015 Argyle Ave. and was last seen sitting on the steps of the church located directly across the street: The House of Prayer for all people.
This article lists him as missing at 8 or 9 PM.
A huge search was done, over 60 homes entered, almost 200 people questioned, vacant homes searched, dumpsters, trash cans, alleys, abandoned fridges', air ways.
Text of article with broken link referenced in post #4 can be found here:
Since there are no UIDs I can think of that match his stats except for the Lorton John Doe (whose height is way, way, off) maybe he was abducted by a couple who couldn't conceive or something... but 4 seems too old...
