    I think this could be Matthew Nolan, who disappeared in April 1979.

    Hair color (brown) matches
    The clothing description (blue sweatshirt + brown pants) fits into the UID's clothing description
    Nolan was schizophrenic; UID had a vial of medication on him
    Timing (4 months between Nolan's disappearance and the UID's discovery) is consistent
    Distance is only 68.3 miles
    The circumstances of his disappearance are very vague, but nothing about it rules him out
    His age (21) also fits, but the age range is so wide it doesn't really mean much IMO
