There is something about this UID that reminds me of Hemmy. Vital stats match up and I see a resemblance...I’m just not sure about the circumstances or time frame...

This is my uncle, and am so grateful to Google his name and now see all of these people trying to help and his picture everywhere….all thanks to his daughters hard work at getting it into NAMUS. It’s much appreciated. I also have an uncle on my mother’s side who disappeared in California. A private investigator was hired and nothing was found, thinking the internet is the best Avenue. Thanks to you all for spreading the word!

Welcome to Websleuths! I’m so sorry about both of your uncles. I hope you and your family can get some answers regarding their disappearances. I’m happy to help any way I can. Does the one for California have a thread here? Or is he in any of the missing person databases?
 
@Bunny82 welcome! We are a helpful bunch :) Do you know if any close relative of your missing uncle has done a commercial DNA test and uploaded their results to the major companies used for family tree research? This is different from DNA that would be provided to police for their own databases.

As @MadMcGoo posted above, please do a search on your other uncle and let us know if he does not have a thread here, as we can certainly start one.
 
Feel free to print / share this. Someone knows something. It's just getting them to come forward.

Have you pursued the comment here:
"Hemmy could be Owensboro KY John Doe 1990. They have strikingly similar features, and I know it sounds like a stretch as Hemmy would have been gone for a decade by the time Doe was killed, but those close to the case believe Doe had been held captive for a period of time before his murder"
