    At the time of his disappearance in 1995, Rex Casper was 41 years old, 6 feet tall and weighed 170 pounds. Rex has brown hair and brown eyes and may have a mustache, beard or goatee. Rex has a three inch scar on his right knee and a scar on his right elbow. He also has a tattoo of Casper the Ghost on his left arm and a tattoo of a Marine Corps Bulldog at an unknown location on his body.

    This John Doe was most definitely a US Marine. Only a Marine would have a bulldog tattoo with "USMC".

    The age span of "20-40 years" is a bit excessive, but it might indicate that he was in very good shape, even if on the older end of that estimate.

    The T-shirt being red with yellow border is also indicative of the US Marine Corps, as those are their colors.

    I do not know what the "Spring Hill" reference is, unless that was some sort of marathon, event, or run that he might have participated in.

    The "99" could indicate the year of the event, or perhaps be part of his Boot Camp class number. Marines trained at the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot (MCRD), San Diego were assigned to a class for training and they were numbered with four digits, the first two being the year.

    If this Marine was on active duty when he went missing, he would be carried on the roles as a deserter and listed with the USMC deserter office. This is not to imply that he intentionally deserted, but simply that is how an unauthorized absence is administratively classified after 30 days of the service member being missing and in an unknown status.

    The US Marine Corps has checked their records for any missing active duty Marines which might fit this man's description. So far, they have been unable to find a match.

    Possibly this man had been discharged from active duty prior to going missing.

    With those tattoos, you'd think he'd be extremely identifiable. My nephew (who is based at LeJeune) did his bootcamp at Pendleton. So obviously there's a huge military community there. They really need to do a media push there.
