    The two men had been at a lodge operated by Mr. Newcombe at Mile 107 of the CPR line, west of Chapleau, Ontario. Weeden and Newcombe had planned a hunting trip and both were last seen between mile marker 106 and 107 of the CPR line.

    A large-scale search was conducted at the time, and again in the following spring (1960). The search failed to locate the two men, and to date, they have not been located.

    Location, time frame makes it a long shot. These two were found 6 months apart in Washington state, both thought to be homeless.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    Hey, came across this one and your UID # 334 had a belt with a letter "G" on it. Could this be George?
