    Forgive me if I am way off with this one but I came across this missing person. I do realise that the age is off.

    Benjamin R Cannon.

    I believe you are both correct, that date 2004 date is only applicable for when he was reported missing but not when he actually went missing from his family in 1995.

    From this site listing: http://omaha.crimestoppersweb.com/missing.aspx
    (scroll down)

    "Cannon was reported missing in May 2004, but has not been seen or heard from by family members since 1995. Cannon may have been traveling with the Rainbow Family in the mid to late 90`s."

    If not this GDF fan Cannon may be a good match for the GD fan who was a victim of a hit and run accident in Georgia that same year.

    When I saw Ben on the Nebraksa state missing persons site I thought he was an absolutely awesome match - matching the physical description, timeline and community.

    However, looking at the MySpace, in the family's information he seems to have gained 6" and 45lbs - and Kelly Jolkowski has been involved with the family already, which suggests that this case would have been looked out and ruled not a match

    Obviously it's all down to the data (and I guess we have to consider compression as a result of the impact) but I'm much less hopeful for a match than I was last night.

    I sent Kelly of ProjectJason an email and she is going to run it by the lead LE there. She doesn't think it looks like Ben and she does work with the family.

    So when I hear something back, I will let everyone know.

    Thanks Salem for getting in touch with Kelly.

    Hi Cymro, my feelings are exactly like yours after looking at Benjamins sisters myspace.

    I just heard from Kelly - here is her response:

    Just to let you know, DNA analysis proves this DOE is NOT Benjamin Cannon.

    Thanks.

    bumping, as Benjamin Cannon is not listed on the namus database as one of those excluded as being Jason Doe. Is there any more information on when he was excluded? wondering why its not on namus. it seems like it would be a very possible match.

    Should this be considered a GDoe, rule out page, or is this the Benjamin Richard Cannon page? the thread for him appears to be closed.thanks.
