    Although nothing matches - location, timeline, age, eyes, height, scars - pretty much everything and both appear to have DNA so should auto rule out, he reminds me of “Bobby Copeland”.

    Haynes, circa 1981; Age-progression to age 48 (circa 2010)

    • Missing Since 07/24/1981
    • Missing From Boulder, Colorado
    • Classification Endangered Missing
    • Date of Birth 12/21/1962 (56)
    • Age 18 years old
    • Height and Weight 5'10, 140 pounds
    • Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Blond hair, blue/green eyes. Haynes had minor acne at the time of his disappearance.
    "Some speculate that Haynes ran afoul of a drug dealer in Boulder and was murdered as a result. Another theory is that Haynes joined a religious cult that was active in the area at the time. No evidence has been found to support any hypothesis, however.

    Haynes's father petitioned to have his son declared legally dead in Contra Costa, California in June of 1982. The petition was granted in March 1983. Haynes's sister is still looking for him. His Social Security number was thought to have been used in California in the late 1990s, but this turned out to be a clerical error.

    Some of Haynes's loved ones believe he staged his disappearance for unknown reasons; others say he would have never left his family and probably met with foul play. His case remains unsolved."

    Bumping for Jon Haynes. Why would somebody wanting to buy some pot is killed by a don't kill your costumers....not just like that...It sound kind of weird to me. Somehow this doesn't sit right. In my eyes he looks to me "a perfect beautiful boy" victim for a predator. No victim blaming...just an observation.

    He disappeared in 1981 and was driving a 1981 Subaru. I thought it was weird for a college kid to have a brand new car, but then I read his Dad was an attorney in California, so probably had money and bought him a brand new car.
    I wonder if appearing wealthy and being young and new in town was a motivating factor for nefarious behaviour against him?
    Was he carrying much cash for college?

    The hitchhiker was arranged via an acquaintance in advance, but I'm perhaps wondering if the hitchiker mentioned his ride (quite innocently) to someone who had bad ideas...
    "Yeah, I'm coming back to Boulder, this young rich dude from Cal is bringing me on his brand new car..."

    Just thoughts and ideas and MOO.

    To me, this sounds like a car accident. He went over the ledge into a ravine somewhere, probably not anywhere near where he was last seen.
