    I was wondering that too- I haven't seen anything that has narrowed the shirt down to anything more than a shirt from that years tour. Is there a pic of the back of the shirt anywhere? The front says 'tour 199?' (I guess 1995 but I can't read the last #) but the back would be the place they would put any more info on venues/cities if it even had any.

    I think the Dead tended to just have a set of shirts for the whole tour, or maybe one for East Coast and one for West Coast legs, something like that. It is kind of rare for there to be a shirt made specifically for one show, so my guess is its just a general 1995 tour shirt. In that case there probably wouldn't be any way to trace the purchase to any particular venue.
    I looked for it online but I couldn't find that particular shirt anywhere to get any more info on it. I do wish there was a picture of the back of the shirt just to satisfy my curiosity, but I can't seem to find one?

    I'll take a look around on Ebay for the shirt tomorrow. Even is there isn't one listed right now, there might be sometime in the near future.

    The reason I started thinking about the shirt is because I was wondering, if Jason purchased the shirt at that show, what happened to the one he was wearing before he bought it? Where were his other belongings? Even if you're on a short road trip, you usually bring a change of clothes in a backpack or something.

    Makes me wonder if he indeed did miss a ride with someone (ie, the Carolines) who may have had some of his stuff with them.

Jason could have been bisexual or homosexual (a deal breaker for too many parents) or have been told 'live by our rules or get out' by strict parents or 'live according to our faith or get out' by pious parents. Perhaps he has family out there who hope he will contact them again one day when tensions have eased or he has straightened his life out.

    That is a great idea about the dentists. Maybe you could ask your dentist if there is a dental magazine or publication that most dentists subscribe to. The editor may be willing to do an article. You could also ask about the major companies that manufacture or supply dental devices (like fillings) or dental surgical equipment. They may be willing to mail out a NCMEC flier of Jason with their products. I doubt it but it's worth a shot. Red hair is just uncommon enough for a dentist or orthodotist to perhaps remember him.
    I like your thinking and those ideas didn't come to me while I was composing that response. But it does make sense. Just like the SC "mystery couple". You have to wonder why no one is looking for them.

    so i went through the following states websites looking for missing people because sometimes they have missing people on there that arent on the missingkids.com website. I went to the georgia, alabama, tennessee, arkansas, texas, and oklahoma state sites and found nothing so far. I'm still trying to find a way to see more surrounding states sites to see if he's on one of those.
    as for the dentist thing do we know if he just had perfect looking teeth or if he had work done? If he had work done then we can try going to the american dental association website and contacting them to see if they would put something tiny in there about gd fan.
    also maybe we could divide up the southern states and contact the major newspapers from each state and put in a little tiny thing somewhere asking if someone knows him

    what do you guys think?

    Last night I read through the previous thread on this case and was very impressed with the dedication and hard work of so many sleuthers. I, like others, am inclined to believe JD was never reported missing, before or after his death. I was particularly struck by one posters suggestion (supported by information gleaned from the ME) that JD's family
    became aware of his fate when this case was first publicized but for reasons unknown, perhaps financial, did not claim his body.

    I would still love for this Doe to be identified though my optimism has faded. What keeps me hopeful is to see how many people have been moved by this case over the years and truly care about finding out who 'Jason' was, it is inspiring.

    Thank you Kittykat. I do think it is worthwhile speculating why a person hasn't been reported missing. If a person hasn't been reported you could approach groups or areas that often have contact with people estranged from their families or those who have no family. For example, following my earlier line of thought, you could approach foster care departments and agencies (a red headed child is just rare enough to be memorable), church groups (sometimes people turn to a church when they feel alone or he could have devout parents who are estranged from their wayward son), cheap hostels (if he's travelling), streetkids hangouts or homosexual clubs and advocacy groups (many have members that have been shunned by their families) in the state he was found.

    Is everyone sure that the 914 was a prefix and not an area code? 914 used to be the area code for a large suburban area outside NY city. It was rockland and other counties, I believe they changed it a few years ago to be just westchester across the hudson from Rockland.

    Me too. I think it is a very good possibility that our Grateful Dead Fan is Daniel Nicholas Sheppard. I find it hard waiting, can't imagine what the families go through.

    I received an email fro the Virgina Medical Examiner's office and they are going to contact the Australian Federal Police and ask for fingerprints to see if Missing Daniel Nicholas Sheppard is our Grateful Dead Fan. Here is the email.

    We have received your e-mail regarding our unidentified white male from 1995. Have you been in contact with the police who investigated the missing persons case of Daniel Sheppard? Can you provide us with their contact info so that we may call them and possible obtain dental records or fingerprints?
