    Thanks for posting, I’ve never heard of this case. Boston and North Carolina are obviously two very different directions, and I would think his van would stand out.

    I doubt it has any relevance, but Warren was married in 1968 (to a Judit Tingley) and divorced in February 1971. According to the record there was one child. The records are on Ancestry (but mistranscribed as Warre J Niederfringer - but age and Newington match).

    I was searching for a possible match Unidentified Person / NamUs #UP5661. Warren seemed like a distinct possibility to me. The UP was found in a military issued shirt and Warren was a vet. They both had scars on the left side of their chin, ((I think) if you visit http://www.missingveterans.com/1972/warren-joseph-niederfringer/ and zoom in on the one of his face, it seems like a very large scar), both had blue eyes and were similar in height and weight. It seemed likely that if he'd run into drugs on his road trip, it would explain the unkempt appearance in the UP photo. I reported it as a possibility just in case. What do you guys think?

    Funny, I live nearby and have NEVER heard of this case until just now stumbling upon it...

    I have a lot of questions, including who saw him in CT and who said he was heading for Boston or NC (and of course, for what purpose). As mentioned above, those are two totally different directions!

    I was looking at a case last night from Maryland that seemed like it could be ineresting to compare: The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs)

    The eye color is wrong but it's old info so I don't give it 100%

    I emailed the Maryland ME to see if Warren was ruled out as being the Salisbury JD from 1972.
