There's a year (almost to the day) between missing since date and the time this UID was discovered. Age & weight are a bit off too, but the location is only 40 mins from where he was last seen.
It's hard to tell from the grainy black and white photo, but it looks like he has long sideburns.
As well, it lists dentals unknown so no way to rule him based on the dental plate.

This famous photographer,
[h=1]Ron Stoner[/h] went missing in 1977, have to find his stats, but for now..
That looks like a spoon ring and some sort of ID bracelet, but there doesn't appear to be any engraving, even faintly.
Can anyone else see anything in it that maybe I'm missing?
If i ever knew about spoon rings i have forgotten! Thanks, interesting and probably correct, imo. the uid's ring looks similar to this spoon ring. speculation.
This one is called " Michelangelo"
I don't think Ron Stoner is listed in Doe, NamUs or Charley Project. CP listed him in an article on her FB page, that's where I got most of my information.
Those ID bracelets were everywhere in the 1970s. It's a shame his first name wasn't engraved on the plaque bit as it would have helped to narrow things down considerably.
It's kind of worn down, and appears to be plated. Can you discern any writing on it? I'm wondering if it had been there but rubbed off. I had one with that wasn't deeply engraved and some of it it. I can't tell.
There's no engraving that I can see, just a few scratches.
I'm 95% sure this is the body of the American Lynn Dull, who went missing from Oroville, Washington in 1974. I believe he had a Canadian girlfriend living somewhere around the Coquitlam area back then. I would have to check back to the old police reports, but I believe his abandoned car was found less than a mile from Sasamat Lake. I have no idea why it has taken 40 years to figure this out, but perhaps it is simply the difficulties of cross-border police force communication and the fact that there was a 3-year time gap between his abandoned car being discovered and the body being found. It's also possible that there could be something more nefarious at play. I wonder if there is DNA evidence on the body? Can anyone provide any more information on the disappearance of Lynn Dull? It is a non-trivial task for me to try to get access to the Okanogan County police reports from the 1970s.
Welcome to Ws 421LKG!
Thanks for that very intriguing tip, will look for more information about that missing person.

dotr, did you ever find about more about Lynn Dull? I can't find anything about someone with that name missing from Washington.
Looked several times for info. and did not come up with anything, but that does not mean it is not somewhere!
Welcome 421LKG :welcome:
Initially I thought Lynn sounded very likely but I have to question how he could have abandoned his vehicle near Sasamat Lake in 1974 and been in the water for 3 years. LE feels the individual located in 1977 had only been "in the water several weeks".
Having said that, just because we might not figure it out right now, I really think it is worth a call to the investigator:
Separate names with a comma.
