    I thought I would start a thread on this young guy as I came across an article on the case which has a sketch that neither NAMUS or Doe Network has and some more in-depth details that either of those sites have which someone might be able to link to something, for example they have narrowed it down to a man in his 20s and included initials which might be of interest.

    The MP and UID have very different noses but otherwise, Donald Cary Ewalt, missing from El Centro, CA since October 4, 1979 has similar physical statistics. There's nothing mentioned about him having lost weight prior to disappearing, though.

    Donald Cary Ewalt has a page in the missing persons section of Websleuths -- http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=138148

    I think his DNA is on file because, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Office, because there is an UID in their county that they would like to exhume to collect his DNA and compare it with Mr. Ewalt's DNA when they have funding available.

    It is my understanding that Donald Cary Ewalt's fingerprints and dental information is not available.

    Other than the differences in the nose (I don't mean to be graphic, but because the man found in Sacramento's cause of death was, according to the article, a bullet wound to the head, could that have distorted his nose?), there is another reason it may not be Mr. Ewalt is his eyes are hazel (they appear to be more blue-green on the photos), I'm not sure if they could be mistaken for brown. El Centro, where Mr. Ewalt went missing, is almost 600 miles from Sacramento, where the UID was found, but I guess he could have gotten there by bus earlier since (from the article) he bought the drink he was found with at the Burger King at the bus station.
