    I don't see that at all. Somebody who walked off to start over might well have gone into an IT training program at some point and had a pretty much normal life.

    I mean, I don't think that's the case. But I don't see anything to rule it out, either.

    My first thought... nahhh... Too much time has elapsed but hey, maybe not. There's such a resemblance. Of note, there is a vehicle notation for Ferris, a 1982 Pontiac... I wonder if it was located?

    He was visiting a relative in the 5000 block of Louisiana Highway 117 when he became upset about a family member's illness and ran into the woods. He has never been heard from again. Few details are available in his case.

    He does not look like our "Denim" at all. IMO of course.

    Maybe not...But everything seems to match...From LA, the timing is on, age is on, height is close, eye color is on, weight, teeth are good...MH was not always MH...He transformed from someone to MH...

    Finding of his car; I couldn't find confirmation about that but CP states this
    Ferris departed from his family's home sometime during February 1991, driving a silver 1982 Pontiac, and apparently traveled to Custer State Park in South Dakota.
    Don't know what to make of this....could be cryptic for they found the car near Custer State Park, but as I said no hard information from any source (at least what I could find)

    Thanks for checking on the car! Also, did you see the comment about someone with same name had been (IIRC... I'm on my phone and not looking at it atm)... Arrested/cited by fish & wildlife dept (a park in SD?) years later... Seems the date and age would "fit"... But I dont quite remember the details.
    'Seems quite a stretch for this to be the UID... I dunno.

    I don't believe MH transformed himself. He is what he is. He sounds like a dude that hit the trails as a thru hiker, wanted anonymity & suffered a serious health crisis and passed.

    IMO, Mr. Treadwell listed above is a zero match.

    I am in complete agreement with this. Besides losing weight or changing a hairstyle, I don't see much changing.

    Just checking back in, since I have friends currently NoBo on the AT.

    Stomach ailments are a HUGE problem along the trail, and they’re constantly worried about the “group-runs” iykwim that spread rapidly through the shelter/camps and hostels.

    They’ve mentioned this happening in several of their locations, in GA, NC, and VA. One day they hiked almost 17 extra miles during the night to get away from a group that had the “flu.”

    I have a very strong feeling he was never reported missing so he will not be in any databases.

    No way to see what he looked like before he hit the trail and track the changes...No photos prior to Aug 2017 and not many after

    Does anyone have an idea of when exactly each photograph of Denim/MH/Ben was taken?

    Hi, welcome. Some/a member(s) made a timeline(s). It's up the thread somewhere. I suppose there is more info in that about when the pictures were taken. It could also be in thread #1.
