    For some reason, I'm betting LGBT assault on this one.

    This one has a few details about Lasker's CV that might otherwise be difficult to find. The interesting one is "technical advisor (future)" in 1989, which would be after this MP went missing. I'm thinking this was for a movie that would be called Millenium. Dennis read a story for the writer involved: https://books.google.com/books?id=d...Q6AEISzAL#v=onepage&q="dennis lasker"&f=false

    Dennis Lasker on DoeNetwork is listed as having completely straight teeth. It would be likely he could be eliminated with dentals even without more specific information?

    Not necessarily. If all the changes are things that could have happened after he and his perfect teeth disappeared, it wouldn't rule him in or out.

    I asked a relative who works in entertainment about the notation for the movie Millenium (future) and was told that means he was scheduled to work on it but production hadn't begun yet so there wasn't anything for him to do. Hollywood production cycles are very long and it isn't unusual for good people to be booked years in advance.

    Yes, that scenario seems likely. He also seems a lot more involved in movies than in modeling at this point in his career.

    He could also have had some work in Vancouver BC where his wallet was found. Vancouver, IIRC, has a thriving movie industry.

    It had occurred to me that our UID on purpose removed his own teeth so as to prevent dental ID. In that case, with reference to this MP, there might only be a few "perfect" teeth left.

    Apart from that, I'm guessing LE is making dental ID's on our UID, in all instances, from a mouth bone shape and not just teeth, since there are several/many missing.

    I am Dennis Lasker's step brother and we were very close. I was closer to him in 1980 than any other of his relatives. I had given up looking for him but recently saw his picture and interest rekindled. If more info is discovered I will be watching.

    Hi and welcome to Websleuths.

    Can you tell us any more about your stepbrother that might help us find him?

    Did you look at the rest of the threads in this forum to see if you think he might be the decedent?

    Glad to have you here and I hope we can help you out.
