    Has Ricky been submitted for comparison to LE? I hope so! This is the best match I've seen on John! Agree with above - first time the chin dimple, deep ridge just below the nose + the upper teeth angle + jawline were clear as day to me. Wow! 2nd photo blue shirt, red under chin, compared to the crime scene & morgue photos.

    Height, weight, general build, eyes, timing, and I see the hair as a match also. It is bushy in a couple shots yes, but 3rd photo down, lt blue/gray shirt. JMO his hair in that pic is identical to what we see of JD's at the crime scene. His curls are tamed as often as they are bushy. If this doesn't fit the criteria to compare DNA, I'm not sure what would?

    Could also add he's from Canada + walked away from his intended schooling. He had some dental fillings already. Something might've happened just after they last saw him as in an accident that required the oral surgery. Smashed his teeth on a steering wheel or handlebar for example. Or it could have been before + led to a falling out with his father that his sister was not aware of. I find it odd they're not sure when they last saw him in the fall of '75. Holidays? I've set aside the Batson story only because he calls in a tip, a yr later, LE takes down notes + then nothing. It was not corroborated so I didn't want to use it to rule anyone/anything in or out. But it would only add to what is quite a lot of similarities here. IMO

    JMO after looking at I swear every photo on the internet side by side with each of the Doe photos + sketches this week. I started on thread 1 + have just been slogging through & putting them up side by side whenever I could see any resemblance, then see what I could rule out. I have been searching for that deeper crease under the nose along with a cleft chin as they were the first things I noted on JD. Short of a new jawbone or beard I thought it would not change. I see nothing that rules him out so far?

    There's something about the angle as the bridge of his nose meets the inner corner of his eye + start of his eyebrow, that triangle area looks identical to my eye. I don't know how to overlay photos or put pointers on them so I apologize for my choppy descriptions. I'm quite sure there is a name for that triangle or point but I sure as shooting don't know what it is.
    All JMO I really really really hope this has been sent along + if so, what'd they say?!!! :cool:

    The articles explained the "nobody was looking for him" mystery. Family thought they filed a report + LE was looking + there is no report on file 40 yrs later. So, his face was not being circulated when they were hunting for anyone that could be their Does around the globe. Or so it seems. :(

    Has Ricky been officially submitted as a possible? It looked that way on the previous page, but I wasn't sure if it actually happened. And, I didn't see anything to rule him out so I was wondering.

    I don’t think he has. I have never submitted anyone. I’d be more than happy to, if someone wants to give me some guidance on how to do it! I still strongly believe it’s him.

    His DNA was checked against that of the Sumter Doe - no match. The family would like to thank all of you for your willingness to help us find closure.

    You are welcome, now that we know there was no match, back to Ricky's regular thread circa 2016, to give it a bump and to keep the search going!
