I ran a search on my 1994 HomePhone nationwide CD ROM telephone directory. I used the wildcard parameter $$$-914-$$$$ and ran that for all of the Eastern states.
The following is a list of cities with a 914 Prefix as of 1994: This HomePhone CD is only a landline listing, but many of the cellular prefixes weren't yet established in 1994. In fact, cell phones were not used as widely then as they are now.
McDonough (Area code 404)
Locust Grove (Area code 404)
Stockbridge (Area code 404)
Hampton (Area code 404)
Berwyn (Area code 301)
Toms River (Area code 908)
Annandale (Area code 703)
Springfield (Area code 703)
Alexandria (Area code 703)
Falls Church (Area code 703)
By the way, the only Caroline on the CD with a 914 Prefix was a Caroline E. From McDonough GA (Area code 404)

Looking in Classmates.com for people named Caroline T. who went to high school in the above listed cities yielded the following two people: (excluding persons listed as "Carol", "Carolyn", etc., and excluding persons named Caroline whose married names begin with "T" but whose maiden names start with a different letter)
* Caroline T. (Married Surname Initial R) -- West Potomac High School, Alexandria, VA Class Of 1991
* Caroline T. (Married Surname Initial S) -- Congressional School of Virginia, Falls Church, VA, Class Of 1965
Looking for people named Caroline O in the same cities, i had the following:
Caroline O. -- Monsignor Donovan High School, Toms River, NJ, Class of 1997
Since the 914 prefix applied only to Caroline T, our screen for Caroline O should not be limited just to the "914" cities.
Interestingly enough, the Caroline T from West Potomac HS now lives in my neighborhood (i.e., El Segundo CA). I may have to pay her a visit, and show her the letter and ask her if she recognizes the handwriting as hers.
But Caroline T (of WPHS) does have a Facebook page, so I'll try that approach.

Did anyone ever come up with the complete phone number from the note? When I was reading about this case about 10 years ago or so I saw an unedited image of the note. I used to have the complete number but have since lost it. It has to be somewhere.
This Facebook group and the people behind it have been doing a lot of work to help give him a name:
I logged in after forever and a day to a PM requesting this file still. I can't seem to edit my initial posting, but I found a copy of it on an external drive and uploaded it to my dropbox. If a mod happens to see this, can you pretty please update the first post?
Since it's the XLS version, it should work in older versions of Excel and other software that can open Excel spreadsheets.
I believe Toronto Canada has area code 914 as well. I realized this after looking into missing kids from niagra falls area, specifically Jamie Lafebvre looks a lot like him.
His stepfather is listed in an article as George Svoboda, I wonder if he has seen the info on Jason?
I really hope they follow up with DNA tests on the red jeans they found in the niagara river. Jamie Lefebvre's possible connection to the Grateful Dead fan is interesting. I really don't see these 'Lost Boys' as being deadheads but there was only three of them seen on the video at the marina from when they went missing. Where were the other three? And where are all six now? Where is the boat they were on?
It's posible the girls names were never actually Caroline,, it could have been something they told him or he could have decided to call them that himself as a nickname... it could be from a song, the girls could be from North or South Carolina and it could be a play on Carolina - Caroline... The T and O could be the initials of their first name... in this counter culture it is common for people to use names other than their own
Does anyone have access to the full number? We should be be trying it with all the possible prefixes that have been narrowed down. As well as countries with the same ###-#### pattern. I have a magic jack, I will gladly make the international calls...if I'm privy to the number somehow. Or maybe someone who has already been in communication with the pertaining LE can get the rest of the digits (instead of multiple people pestering them). Might be a long shot-but then again, my parents have had the same number since '86. I think this really needs to be done.
MD didn't start requiring area codes before numbers till late 95...I seem to also recall 914 was a prefix somewhere in Montgomery County too...I want to say Wheaton...
