    Can you link an article with more information about the body including where it was found?

    There is no I-15 in San Francisco. Freeways in San Francisco are 80, 280, and 101.

    I-15 in California runs northeast from San Diego toward Las Vegas, Nevada. Maybe the body was found in San Diego, not San Francisco?

    I can see the resemblance between the composite of this child and the pictures of Brandon Lee Wade.

    The only question I have is: what's the connection between Valdosta, GA and San Diego, CA? It's definitely not impossible, but the Charley Project doesn't mention any ties to California. Even when it brings up the suspicious, "uncooperative" roommate who told police where the remains might be, it sounds like it's at a nearby location and not 2,000 miles away. Does this roommate have ties to San Diego?

    Still, good for you for noticing this case, doing research, and reaching out to NCMEC with a possible lead! You never know!

    Even with the age of this case it could be possible that the mother was lured by roommate or someone else that tricked her into Human Trafficking. It is not uncommon for Human Traffickers to lure or trick single or at risk mothers into Trafficking but pretending to be boyfriends, friend, etc. whatever it takes to get to them. Many traffickers do sell the children to predators or child traffickers or keep them to help keep their mothers in line if necessary. Most mothers will do whatever they have to do to protect their child and in a situation like this I would think the Trafficker or Predator would have added measure of control over her with using the child as a type of leverage to keep her quiet and doing what they want to make them money. I realize that even in the 2000's that there are still those that Hitchhike or catch rides with Truckers in some capacity to get to where they are going. I can see this as a possibility of what has happened to the mother if she may still be alive. It may not have been about the mother at all but getting to the child and abducting the little boy for Trafficking or at hands of Child Predator. Having Angel Doe in the bag does make me think that the person responsible may in fact have close ties to him as they did not want to see him in that condition and there might have been some type of shame and regret at what they had done. Hopefully NCMEC can help with this case and help to identify him. This is one that just breaks my heart and makes me beyond angry at the person or persons who are responsible.

    I say the connection to Georgia based on their analysis of where the child had spent most of his life from the forensics they did. I never heard anything back but I also don’t know if they followed up on it

    Right, I get the forensic connection between the unidentified child and the southeastern US. But in order to strengthen the theory, I'm trying to work from the other direction. What ties might Brandon (or his parents?) have to California, where the unidentified was found? And since in Brandon's case, the roommate is a suspect, what ties to California might the roommate have? I think 2,000 miles is a great distance to go just to deposit a body, but it sounds more plausible if anyone of them had a reason to be headed there (friends/family, school, work, etc.).

    Any idea what was updated?
    I hope they can use forsenic genealogy for this case!
    I live only about 3 or 4 miles from where this body was found.

    This case really needs more attention. Surely someone out there is missing him, a grandparent, a sibling, cousin, parent? He had a name. He has a story...

    Heart breaking a little one can disappear and no one cares enough to say anything. I’ve always thought it was weird he was wearing so many clothes too. Who wears 3 shirts?

    The boy was dead 'at least a year' so the bones could have been much older and the boy could have been as old as four years old. It's a long shot at best, but this boy may perhaps be Michael Dunahee who was a four-year-old boy who was abducted from Victoria, British Columbia in 1991.

    Are you going to submit it? I don't feel comfortable making submissions, but it's an interesting idea. If the possible ages / dates match, LE should consider it, IMO. (If they haven't already.)

    You have to wonder why the extra clothes and the adult clothes were in the duffel with the body, don't you?
