Unfortunately, if he was a hippie, due to the high amount of hippie transients during the 60's, I find it unlikely that his family was looking for him, probably assuming he just cut off contact to live an alternative lifestyle. Perhaps they are looking for them now but this case seems like one that will need to be solved with DNA.
