When is the first time that MH was for sure on the AT?
I'm excited to share the annotated map/timeline. Tricia asked that I include in my post: this map has been reviewed and approved prior to my sharing it. This wouldn't be possible without the timeline @Gardener1850 put together. Everything included comes from official LE postings and official business postings. Of course, this does not mean everything is 100% accurate!
This has been hand-stitched together in Photoshop from approximately 20 screenshots of maps with MH sightings/interactions marked. After that, I overlaid the trails, then associated photos and annotations were placed on a top layer. Due to the shape of our little blue planet, as well as the dynamic nature of trails, please keep in mind that some marked locations and trails may be a bit skewed.
A final note, some photos and sightings were intentionally excluded due to the inability to verify the sighting location, and/or the photo was not found via an official source. I hope this is helpful. I welcome feedback and have set the map up in a way that we can edit/add to it without too much trouble.
Florida has very very strict laws about what can be done with DNA and how they can proceded. In other cases, I've been told that they can't get that warrant until they've exhausted all other reasonable avenues. And I'm sure it's complicated by the fact that it's new technology and everything has to be explained at every step of the way.
I wonder if he was a boy scout. That could explain his experience and comfort levels hiking with a map and compass.
I also wonder if he would have gone to something like PAX East, a convention that combines technology and nerd culture.
Just trying to think outside the box here!
IIRC, Collier County Sheriff’s Office has stated no one currently listed on NamUs is a match ...?If MH had no tattoos there would be no reason to have to satisfy a request for comparison with a missing person that had tattoos...the tattoos should be enough to say 'MH has no tattoos no reason to compare'....One of the rule outs disappeared after MH was found and one had broken teeth--Yet they can rule out others that are a closer fit to MH and not listed in a database within a couple of minutes of receiving the request...As if there is some detail they are looking for that we have no idea of...

The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) Ear piercings, scar on right wrist and on back of head, had bald spots. tattoo of a cross on right ankle, teeth are broken
The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) 66 yrs old, missing since 1992, brown eyes, scar on eye
The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) 54 yrs old, almost totally grey haired, tattoo of dragon on one shoulder, rose on the other
The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) The only one that made sense to compare!
I wonder why LE hasn’t accepted DNA doe projects offer to help. I know they mentioned something about needing a warrant but even DDP seemed unsure of why LE doesn’t want their help, so I wonder if it’s really because of a warrant or not. Idk, I am pretty turned off by the way Collier county interacts on social media in the threads I’ve seen regarding “denim”.
Hhhhmmm. Our UID is comfortable in the outdoors, is also techie.
Has anyone checked geocaching.com for cachers in the New York state area who haven't posted since 2017?

I admit this sounds rather extreme, but perhaps they should state that where “Missing Persons Exclusions” are usually listed (where you tap on the “link” icon) ...?
I’ve heard that Florida has stricter laws but DNA Doe has several Florida cases that they are currently working. I have often wondered if our hiker knew that Florida had stricter DNA testing laws and that’s why he chose to die there(if he was in fact sick and wanting to disappear and die alone)?
