    There is a private Instagram profile that has BURUKAAY listed in it like the tattoo. The user name on the acct is also on an Ethiopian FB account last updated in 2016 so I would suggest Ethiopian as well. Is that a common term? No idea if there is any connection.

    Update: The FB Page is linked to a memorial FB page for Burukaay person. May be connected there, a memorial tattoo.

    Two hearts after Zeni make me think it's the name of a significant other.

    I just called the tip into the Washington Metro PD tip line. She said she'd forward the information to the lead detective in charge of the case.

    You should send that tip in. No shame in covering all our bases.

    Excellent work. Sadly, this seems like a strong possibility.

    Matthew Lucas seems like a possibility, but his complexion is darker than the UID, in my opinion...Hair texture looks different to...

    His tattoos look like they were done by a professional. I highly doubt this UID is a minor.

    According to some comments on Facebook, family members have seen the posts about him and reached out. They are not identified in these posts. They could also be a hoax, so take it with a grain of salt until he's officially identified.

    Shin sent me a facebook profile that looks very much like it could be this person. Fingers crossed for a quick ID for the sake of his family.

    Zeni is some type of currency in Dragon Ball Z video games ...It's equal to one yen which is Japanese money/ currency ...The UIDs companion appears Asian....

    Apparently he went missing May 2018.
    MISSING: 15-year-old from SE DC

    The same missing picture was used.

    I don't really think the hair texture is different maybe just grown out and manipulated for the style. Also differences in complexion could simply be the difference of summer and winter coloring. My complexion varies widely like this; bronze in the summer more butterscotch in the winter.
