Jackie Boyer is the only MP on my list from Windsor.
But there is no reason to believe that the UID was a child.
Apparently they've been there for at least one year
The Dockers pants pretty much rules out Boyers.
She was pretty unlikely to start with.
I think this UID may be a man. Dockers advertises khakis for men and women, but it seems to be a male-dominated brand. All of the models I'm seeing on Google Images are men.
The Dockers brand was also introduced in 1986, so that would rule out anyone who went missing prior to that year.
NamUs lists 12 men and 4 women missing from Sonoma County, 8 of whom are missing from Santa Rosa (which is only 8.1 miles from Shiloh Park).
Ok, so here's a list of men missing from Sonoma County from 1986 to 2012. 10 out of the 16 people listed on NamUs fit that description, although I've excluded one (Robin Reed) because of the circumstances. The distances listed are from Shiloh Park to the town/city these people went missing from.
Jesus Madrigal - Dec'2012, Santa Rosa, 8.1 miles away
John Farfan - Nov'2012, Santa Rosa, 8.1 miles away
Curtis Sloan - Jan'2011, Santa Rosa, 8.1 miles away
Donald Still - June'2007, Guerneville, 17.6 miles away
Benjamin Barros - May'2004, Cotati, 15.9 miles away
Timothy Criss - Oct'2006. NamUs says he went missing from Santa Rosa (8.1 miles away) but the circumstances listed aren't too clear ... it says he went to help his brother move to New Mexico, Criss left a note saying he was going back to California, then it says he was heading to Mexico for a fling.
Dennis Harrington - July'1995, 21.8 miles away (Monte Rio)
Michael Troyer - Nov'1994, 32.5 miles away (Duncan's Landing State Park)
Anthony Horner - Feb'1989, 8.1 miles away (Santa Rosa)
I was going to list Jason Kyles, who was last seen by a biker in early February, chanting and walking around naked in in Annadel Park. But he doesn't fit. One, he went missing only 10 months ago. And two, he was last seen naked, and his pants and shoes have since been recovered and the tags had been torn off. Besides, I think he'd be fairly easy to rule out (depending on what bones were recovered) because he was 6'6.
It sounds like the poor guy had a mental health crisis and somehow died in Annadel Park.
I also excluded Robin Reed, who went missing in January 1995 from Petaluma (24.5 miles away). It says he was last seen wearing tan pants, which fits the description, but all indications are that he killed himself by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge.
Here are a few more males missing from Sonoma County that aren't in NamUs:
Gerrit Henry Vanderveer (2012) http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/v/vanderveer_gerritt.html
Kristopher Michael Pafford (2012) http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/p/pafford_kristopher.html
John Christianson (2007) http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/c/christianson_john.html

I would not rule out women based solely on the Dockers brand. They have plenty of great sporty stuff for women (just thinking sporty because this is a park, so possibly hiking/biking).
Also, some women prefer to wear men's pants.
And some uniforms use Dockers for pants - I have seen them a lot on food service workers.
Oh, good point, I had forgotten that. The Best Buy crew wears them a lot, too.
My margins are blown on this thread for some reason.
This is close to home, I haven't heard anything further about it.
If we had an image of the dockers pants we could narrow down the year more. Also a size would help- of course women's sizes are 10,12,14 etc. and mens get the better sizing system.
I was searching for any updates on this case but haven't found anything. I did find lots of searches of Lake Sonoma at the same time as these remains were located after a diver reported seeing a body. No trace of articles mentioning if anyone was found though. Anyone have any info on that?
UID now on NamUs. Hispanic male, 35-55 years old, prior nose and lumbar fractures.
He was really short at only 5' tall.
Poor guy, if he was undocumented, chances are he'll never be identified. Windsor is part of the Sonoma Wine Country--which is heavily subsidized by undocumented workers.
The decedent has been identified as John Gilbert Farfan of Santa Rosa CA.
Good work Migmuu, and thanks Carl!
Mr. Farfan's Namus is still available. https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/9543/37
Here it is, for reference. I notice his ethnicity is listed as "other," not hispanic. Santa Rosa to Windsor is only 10 miles, and there appears to be bus service: https://goo.gl/maps/R5kso
