    Lopez appears to have more distance between his lip & chin & the nose turns differently, but the picture of the unknown person is a reconstruction & details could easily have been skewed. Some artists are better than others. I think the straight (not much arch) eyebrows are very much alike.

    The other info is certainly close enough to submit...... got my fingers crossed Snuffy, you're on a roll!

    Certainly looks possible. Yeah, he's at the young end of the range, but still in it. The middle picture of Gordon especially bears strong resemblance to the UID. I say send it in.

    Snufamonbobball -- I think that is worth submitting for sure. If you submit it please let us know if you hear back.

    Aside from not knowing how he would have gotten to AK, seems very possible.
    And the distance isn't that big a deal, since if these people were where they were supposed to be, we wouldn't be looking, would we?

    I'd say go for it....looks good.

    I did submit Mr. Lopez to his NamUs case manager, she emailed me back today and said she has contacted Alaska and Portland. She'll let me know when she hears back.

    In the mean time, keep Gordon in mind while you float around in cyberspace.

    I got an email from a Portland detective saying he can't comment on Gordon because it's an open investigation and he can't comment on the Alaska guy because it's not his case.

    There wasn't any confidentiality clause in his email (often there is), so I figured I'd update.

    I have no clue if Gordon has been ruled out, but it's nice that he took the time to respond quickly (or at all) though, so everyone please keep Gordon in mind and the guy from Alaska too.

    Thanks!

    The location and resemblance is great but Harbaugh went missing in 1998 and the UID was discovered in 1989.

    Vital Statistics

    Estimated age: DOB is between 1949 and 1964

    Approximate Height and Weight: 6'2" - 6'4"; 180 - 185 lbs.

    Distinguishing Characteristics: Blue or hazel eyes; curly brown hair with full beard and mustache. No tattoos and no scars.

    Dentals: Available

    Case History

    The victim committed suicide on August 23, 1989 in Alaska.

    A police officer was stopped by a citizen who told him about a man running down the road with no clothes on. As he responded and arrived in the area of the McDonald's Restaurant on Mt. View Drive, he saw the man running through the parking lot, then climb up the center flagpole at the restaurant. The man climbed up all the way to the top and looked as if he was surveying the area.

    The officer called up to him, but did not get a response. The man then let go and fell to the ground. The police were never able to find his clothing or figure out where he came from. Fingerprints were sent out to all states, FBI and Canada with negative results.

    He may have come from another country and jumped ship near Anchorage.
    The autopsy showed no drugs were found in his system.

    I've taken a vested interest in getting this guy identified..

    What a crazy story! But such a shame that a man's life had to end in such a way.

    I wonder if he let go on purpose or if he lost his grip?

    Hi, fellow sufferer...I've screwed up dates on here so often I'm starting to not even be embarrassed about it. Also heights. Argh!

    There's a thread in here for a guy who committed suicide by throwing himself in front of a train in Canada. He was a similar description and some of the candidates there might also be candidates for this poor man.
