    It is interesting in that it does not say if the remains were skeletonized, etc, but I am assuming so, due to the fact that more remains were found in 1995.

    ETA: I believe he was found in Algonquin Provincial Park.

    This is one of those cases that I've checked out periodically without finding much in terms of additional information or matches.

    Based on his lifestyle, I'm wonder if Richard Lane has been looked at. He fits the timeline and the description of "tall thin male" w/ blonde hair.

    Without much to go on, I submitted Richard Lane to compare to this UID.

    Already received a reply from the Ontario Provincial Police ...

    I also asked if any more information, photos, descriptors, etc.. is available for the UID

    Thank-you Aragon, looking forward to the update.

    Have always felt this could be the remains of John Walter Zuern -

    https://www.services.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/missing-disparus/case-dossier.jsf?case=2008015999&id=5

    What is not clear in the RCMP info is that John Zuern was missing for 5 years before his family reported him as missing. A detective in charge of JZ's case advised a couple of years ago or so that he had JZ's dentals compared to this uid male and there was no match. Unfortunately the detective did not know who had provided JZ's dentals 5 or more years after he was missing.

    Hoping this uid has his name back or a renewed push is on to find his name.

    In April 1980, a hiker veered off the Hardwood Lookout Trail in Algonquin Provincial Park — and stumbled across human remains.

    A police search of the area near Whitney, Ont. soon after uncovered a size 11 boot, a black sleeping bag, a pair of Levi's jeans, a belt worn out at the 32-inch hole, a camp stove, and a wallet with no identification.

    After another search of the area 15 years later led to the discovery of more remains, and forensic anthropological analysis painted a picture of who the man was. Caucasian. Around 18 to 29-years-old. Long blonde or brown hair. And a slim build. His belt was worn out right at the 32-inch hole.

    One piece was particularly intriguing for police — the man's clothes were found piled neatly beside a sleeping bag. "That led investigators to believe at the time that the individual likely got undressed to sleep," says Ontario Provincial Police Det. Insp. Rob Matthews.

    He has beautiful eyes. Reminds me of my late sons fathers eyes. I would always call him my green eyes.
    I hope this man gets his name back.

    I wish we had more details of his clothing. Name brands and such. Levis jeans I believe where big in the 80s I don't know how "cheap" they would have been.
    Was it a good sleeping bag?
