    Given how common James' first name and surname are, it's impossible to find archived articles. I'm sorry.

    James is also listed on the JPSO website Cold Cases section. This doesn't seem to be recorded on any of the other sites for him.

    "James was last seen on September 6th, 1991 in the 2000 block of Friendship Dr., Harvey, Louisiana."

    His NamUs entry is updated. DNA & dentals are now available.

    To update Kat's message: James has been missing almost 22 years. Come home soon.

    I was looking at Louisiana MP pages and found this MP: James Cary Smith
    http://identifyla.lsu.edu/profile.php?id=277

    Height, hair color (brown) match the "new" reconstruction of Jason on the Namus page. Eyes are listed as hazel. He went missing in 1991 at age 21/22 from Jefferson Parish. Jefferson Parish is the county (parish) next to New Orleans. The parish is divided into East Bank and West Bank, separated by the Mississippi River. Harvey is on the West Bank. James was going to catch the bus to New Orleans when he disappeared. James seems to have the high broad forehead that the new Jason recon has. He also has curly/wavy hair. Jason's nose shape seems similar to James, but I am not sure how to do a side by side comparison of Jason with James in thumbnails.

    Please feel free to comment on this MP either way "possible as Jason" or "no way".

    What I don't understand is why the info on Jason's eye and hair color changed so dramatically from blond-brown to brown hair and from blue eyes to brown. I know the red in his hair was some sort of colorant.

    I am also thinking about submitting Shawn Hale, although Shawn is listed at 6 feet tall and Jason is listed as 5'8. The resemblance between Shawn and Jason in the morphed photos is stunning, but that 5'8 is listed on Jason's NAMUS page as "measured", which I interpret as they are positive Jason was 5'8".
    If it stated "estimated" for Jason, I would be more sure about submitting Shawn.

    Bumping, suggested James on the Lyle Stevik thread - just in case.
