Based on the photographs, Lowell looks like a good possibility!
To me it looks like his beard and hair are red because they are stained with blood. The hair on the top half of his head is blond.
He very much resembles Gary Carpenter https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/12107/72 , except that Gary apparently disappeared in 2011, is shorter and has a tattoo. Gary is missing from Arkansas.

Maybe we should look up light-haired men to match with him. Some guys have blond or brown head hair but grow red beards. The hair on the top of his head is pale, almost grey. What if he grew a beard after he went missing and people only knew him as a blond? And it looks like at least some of the redness is from blood.

The victim was standing in the westbound lane of Highway 52 with his back to traffic when he was struck by a tractor trailer at 8:40 p.m. He was 1.4 miles west of the interchange with Highway 82 in Hamburg. He was thrown 79 feet. The driver of the tractor trailer did not realize he'd hit a person until he pulled over to investigate.
An autopsy indicated no alcohol or drugs in the victim's system. He did not have any identification on him.

Just bumping this up. Hopefully someone will recognize him.
I agree, I think he was strawberry blonde with a red beard. The tips of his hair are stained with blood IMO.
Dried blood isn't red though. It's almost black and usually leaves a rusty brown stain. I suppose that could look reddish on pale blond orvgray hair though

:bump: for image revision.
I don't think I've revised this guy since I first put out his recon.
Definitely a handsome guy.
The decedent has been ID'd as Charles Cornell of Battle Creek Michigan.
Oh, I just saw that missing report the other day. I had a different JD in mind. Wow. RIP Mr. Cornell
RIP Charles Cornell
Here's a small Imgur album with a few photos of him.
RIP Mr. Cornell
What a nice looking man. I wonder what he was doing in that highway when he was hit. No drugs or alcohol in his system. Was he just trying to cross?
RIP Mr. Cornell, thank you for your service.
I wonder how he ended up in AR?
I agree, what a very nice looking young man.
Agreed, he was a very attractive guy. I'm surprised no one in the area stepped forward to say they remembered him.
I'm curious about how he ended up in Arkansas as well. Obviously he had been wandering for 3 years, but I do wonder what his intentions for being in that area were.
