    Earl was added to NamUs:

    His case seems really odd, I wonder if they suspect that he left on his own accord and that's why there isn't much information available.

    I found a list of people displayed on playing cards from New York. Eric is part of that deck and he is listed under the category of Unsolved Homicides.

    Thank you for this, JusticeWillBeServed.

    I wasn't aware of the playing cards with missing individuals on them and now I see a website about it:

    Sending prayers of strength, love and comfort to Earl's family and loved ones.

    Hoping and praying that answers will be found.

    This is my brother, Eric. He has been missing since 1993. My mother has been diagnosed with Brian cancer and doesn't have long to live. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please ask any questions and I will give the answers I have. We are looking for any and all help. Any ideas.

    Welcome to Websleuths Swoozie. I'm sorry it's under these circumstances. I hope you can find the answers you need before your mom passes.

    I have a few questions based on what I have read, if you feel comfortable answering.

    Was Eric planning on going camping with anyone else? Where was his intended destination? Who found his car abandoned and how soon did your family find out he was missing?

    One site that lists your brother's case has it as an unsolved homicide. Was there evidence found in the car that suggested foul play or was this determination made at a later time? Do you have any personal theories as to what could have happened?
