    NamUs for Eric Franks: Missing Person Case

    Missing since March 21, 2011. It should be easy to rule him in or out as he wore full dentures and had only a partial toe.

    I will be watching for a new UID file on NamUs.

    I just moved to the area. It’s about 5 miles down the road from me. I haven’t gone down there. Initially th authorities made it seem the bones had been there quite sometime. Now they are limit it to up to five years and are deciding whether it is a homicide.
    Investigation deepens on bones found in Saginaw County woods
