    [I think this belongs to "1970's Missing"]

    Could he be a victim of a serial killer possibly? Just a thought that came to my mind.

    I don't know much about known serial killers targeting teenage boys back at that time Ralph vanished...

    I reported the thread so it can be moved to the 1970's section. :)

    I wonder if he still has family in the area. His current age of 66 means his parents may or may not be alive. It’s doubtful they ever did a DNA but a sibling may have. I wish there was more info with the old case. It’s so sad to see them languish. The technology today could possibly find them.

    I wonder why no one could give LE a more accurate height for him than a range of 5'5" to 5'10". 5'5" would have made him pretty short for a male of his age but 5'10" would have been a fairly average height for a guy who's 17. Seems like the mom or dad would have had a pretty close idea of how tall he was. I'm not saying the parents had anything to do with his disappearance; I just found it odd they wouldn't know how tall their son was.

    I was thinking the same thing about the height. That is a big difference. Strange that they wouldn’t have a better idea of how tall he was.

    The one photo looks like a standard school headshot at a few years younger than the photo of him standing. He is long in the torso and I’d say closer to 5’ 10”. I wonder who the child is that is almost cropped out of the photo. A younger sibling or cousin? I wonder if they remember him.
