    I don't know much about southern routes...the description says he was found along Interstate 10. what other states does I-10 go thru?
    Some people do crossword puzzles or Soduko in their spare time...I look at skeletal reconstructions and work on UID puzzles. I swear I'm not this morbid in person!

    Help Fred Murray find his daughter and bring her home. He should not be walking those woods alone!

    this guy doesn't have red hair, but brown and red can be easily confused in descriptions. also, not much is known about him, so he could conceivably have dentures, etc. anyway, he went missing in LA in December of '79 so it's an idea:

    Can't be him, he had full dentures and the UID did not.

    Not sure where he would have been for 6 years but here's one missing from an hour away:

    This site here says he has "unique dental anomalies" which might be consistent with this UID having teeth on the bottom but not top.

    This was taken from his Doe Network profile:
    Resorption and remodeling of the maxilla alveolar bone suggests a denture wearer
    They believe he did wear dentures. The dental chart suggests that he has no top teeth.

    The resemblance is decent but there is a huge gap between when he went missing and when this UID was found. The post mortem interval is only listed as 2 months. Of course he could have just decided to leave his old life behind, I guess he wouldn't be the first....who knows?

    From what I can tell, it looks like they don't have a strong idea exactly when he disappeared. It could have been anytime in 1979, but I don't put much weight on that considering it sounds like his wife didn't even report him missing. It could have been in 1980 as well.

    Robert's page says "full set" of dentures. And the UID had natural teeth on the bottom. But considering Robert's wife's sketchy story, who knows.

    That's exactly what I was thinking! Although, I have a sneaking suspicion that they would have no way to ID him against any UIDs. UGH!
