    My first thought is that Kenneth Parnell was abducting boys that age from nearby counties in the early 1970's. I think one boy was from Ukiah which I think is fairly close.

    Unfortunately, I don't think that would help as he died recently in prison.

    Azlaw - looks very similar. The eyes are not as round, but if it is a reconstruction, it is very easy to be off. Did not the description of the clothing say 'skirt'? I'll have to go back and re-read that.

    Okay, I know that this is a LOOONNNGGGG shot, but here it is:
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1278dmnm.html

    He would have been just about the right age, and we don't know for sure that "big for his age" would translate to growing large. He also has those round eyes (maybe baby eyes, but they look similar to me).

    So sad that a young child like that could be missing for so long and not one person would come forward to identify him. It just breaks my heart to know that there are children out there without a soul in the world to love them.

    Looks like a possible to me KYGAL, even though the distance is quite a ways. Especially since baby David may have disappeared with a couple living in a bus. They may have been travelling and ended up in CA. Wouldn't hurt to at least contact the DOE Network or LE.

    Wouldn't hurt to check! The nose is similar for sure. And small for age doesn't mean much in the doe, since they were guessing at the age anyway, kwim?

    What about Douglas Charles Chapman? Missing since '71 in Alfred ME, born in '68. It is a long shot, but the chin looks similar.

    I don't know if it has been turned in but I have to comment on the ears. The ears on the child abducted are quite large vs. the ears found on the UID. I don't know since this is soft tissue if a reconstruction could be made based on that aspect. The eyes do hold some resemblance though.

    I'd turn it in, seeing as how they were working from skeletal remains, it would be hard to accurately reconsruct the ears. Good catch.

    It is definitely worth submitting. It he is not little Rene ruling him out may lead investigators one step closer to finding his true identity. Great job Anthrobones.

    Unhappy CA - Unidentified Boy, Found 1974

    I came across this sad case and think that the little boy deserves his own thread. On September 26, 1974, a 4 - 6 year old boy was found dead in Mill Valley, Marin County, California. Investigators think that he died in January 1973.

    Ouch. He looks like my nephew did at that age.

    The pin is interesting - suggests a woman was involved somehow.

    I took a quick look through the NCMEC website for missing California boys in the right time frame - nothing jumped out at me, so I'll give a more detailed going over later.

    The area he was found doesn't look close to any major roads or highways today, but it could have been different in the 70's.

    I'll give it a think.
