    Case History
    Sometime around late 1996, the man packed a yellow plastic flashlight and a bottle of rum in a black duffle bag, and headed a few hundred feet off Harvey Road, near the Colonial Hill apartment complex. Then he sat down with his back against a tree, put a pistol to his left eye and pulled the trigger.
    By the time a logger stumbled upon the decomposed remains on March 22, 1997, the man had already been dead at least one winter, maybe longer.

    John Doe on left, Robert on right.

    Robert Allen Dale, Jr.
    Missing since May 18, 1996 from Sault Sainte Marie, Chippewa County, Michigan
    Classification: Missing

    Vital Statistics

    * Date Of Birth: November 3, 1962
    * Age at Time of Disappearance: 33 years old
    * Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'7"; 165 lbs.
    * Distinguishing Characteristics: White male. Dark brown to black hair, worn in a neat short cut; also wore a moustache; brown eyes.
    * Clothing: Last seen wearing a bright yellow polo shirt, black dress slacks, and a deck-style shoes with a possible lug-style sole.
    * Other: At the time of his disappearance, he was working as a carpenter.
    * Dentals: Available
    * Fingerprints: Available

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Dale was last seen in downtown Sault Ste. Marie between 11:30 p.m. and midnight on May 18, 1996.
    He had attended a social gathering earlier that evening, which ended with friends at a local bar called the Downtowner. He left the establishment on foot, and was last seen walking westward on a paved road known as Moloney's Alley.
    He has not been seen or heard from since.
    A missing person report was officially filed at 4:44 a.m. Monday, May 20, 1996, with the Sault Police Department. An intense search including local law enforcement, the auxiliary police and other volunteers was conducted in the City of Sault Ste. Marie including the Ashmun Bay area. It eventually mushroomed throughout Chippewa County but in the hours, days, weeks and now, years, that followed, no new information has been shed on the mysterious disappearance.
    The missing person case currently sits in the desk of Det. Mike Langendorf of the Sault Police Department who admits there isn't much he can do without a good solid lead. At this stage, he believes there are two distinct possibilities -- either Dale intentionally disappeared of his own volition, or somebody did something to him and they aren't talking.
    Langendorf refused to speculate as to which situation was more likely.
    "He didn't have a lot of money, he wasn't in a vehicle and he didn't have any credit cards," said Langendorf, adding, "There are no cab records. No one ever came in and said they picked up a hitchhiker fitting that description and took him to Kinross. There's nothing like that. On the other hand, there's absolutely no evidence of foul play."
    Dale left behind a wife and three children.

    ***************
    Possible match?:
    1. There is a strong resemblence between the reconstruction of John Doe and the photo of Robert.
    2. John Doe is estimated to be 36-40, Robert was 33 when he went missing.
    3. John Doe is estimated to be 5'6"-5'9". Robert is listed as 5'7".
    4. Both have dark hair and Robert was a Carpenter which would match the "laborer" possibility of John Doe.
    5. Monticello, NY where John Doe was found is about 16 hours away from Sault Sainte Marie, MI.

    **I'm not really convinced this is John Doe, but since a lot of the information is a close (but not exact) match, and the photos show a strong resemblence I thought I should post this.

    Bruce is a skilled carpenter, and enjoys fishing and boating. He smoked cigarettes and drank beer to excess at the time of his disappearance. He was also a bartender at one time.
    Bruce once lived in Manitoba, so the family attempted to locate him by contacting fishing lodges in the northern part of the province. Those earlier attempts were unsuccessful. Tips have come in that say he was spotted in Winnipeg, but the search there has been to no avail.
    He has had no contact with any member of family or any relatives or friends since leaving in 1996.

    These are my choices from the records available on the Doe Network, for people missing in 1996.

    It is possible John Doe was reported missing before 1996, or that he was reported missing but the case has not been made public.

    Of course its also possible that he was not reported missing at all.....

    I have emailed the Investigator on John Doe's case (email address from Doe Network page) to invite him to have a look at this thread.

    I received a very nice email saying the information on this thread has been checked and ruled out.

    Good to know...

    Okay, was it a shotgun, or was it a pistol? The descriptions contradict.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    One would think that LE would be able to trace the gun, unless it was stolen or bought years prior from a private citizen who didn't keep the records of the sale.

    Nevertheless, here is a guy who was suicidal, and left home with a pistol in his possession.

    Suroush Saket-Oskoui

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...i_suroush.html

    His height and age are also within range. The timeframe is spot-on, and Montgomery MD is about 300 miles from Monticello NY.
