    Hi, Everyone,

    I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this--I'm eager to learn more about how this forum works, as I've been lurking on web detective sites since about 2009 but haven't ever posted or truly investigated a match, so feel free to correct me!

    I just wanted to say that I'm currently investigating this as a potential match for the Oregon John Doe listed above:


    What do you think?

    Thanks for your response!

    I was inspired to consider it anyway based on this solve: https://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...tewart-Simmons I would never have considered that a match based on the supposed physical differences, but someone had better eyes than I would have.

    The timing and location of the Missing and Unidentified Oregon men seem plausible to me. Fingers crossed!

    I just tried and couldn't locate #UP9995 in the NamUs Unidentified DataBase. Can someone please post the list of exclusions for this UID? I know it's a longshot because of the height and weight, but has Mark Dribin been ruled out as an exclusion? He had reddish hair.
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin https://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff https://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    Just thought I'd update this thread: My potential match mentioned earlier has been ruled out.
