    From the article: Police said he doesn't own a car, a phone or credit cards. Police also said he has no friends. Maybe that should read "employment?" :confused:

    Well this is strange. He was unemployed, lived at home in his parents' basement, and apparently no friends :(. I wonder if there are mental health issues? ETA: the article says he has no medical issues, usually that includes emotional/mental issues. I wonder if there is a history of substance abuse.

    I have a cousin who’s lives at home at 35 with no friends and who also has enough independence that she could be missing a day or 3 before anyone really noticed or was alarmed. She’s on the spectrum, very high functioning. I’m curious about substance abuse and internet relationships.

    Was hoping for a positive update today but it looks like he's still missing. I know it's probably none of my business but I can't help but wonder why a man in his mid-30's with apparently no medical history wouldn't have a car or a job, or at least a cell phone and a credit or debit card. I can't imagine why, except maybe substance abuse issues, but afaik there is no evidence of that. :confused: I'm assuming it was his family that last saw him at their home, I'd like to know who besides his family was the last to see him (fyi: I'm not suggesting any foul play by family). All IMO.

    St. Louis is my hometown. While there are definitely homeless people downtown, it’s hard to imagine that the population is so huge that they can’t confirm if it’s him. Is anyone really looking for this man?

    I've never seen a missing persons report list somebody as having no friends.

    I took a peek at Chesterfield's facebook page and it appears that he is known to hang out at places like public libraries and book stores so yeah, it's odd that a positive ID hasn't been made, especially with sightings coming in. He was living at home, I wonder why he didn't just leave a note or something to tell his family where he was going. And again, someone his age with no cell phone?!??? I wonder if he has done this before, goes off the grid and then eventually shows up??

    I saw that @Gardener1850 just posted a white male body recovered from the Mississippi River near Chester, Illinois on March 20th...the "Chester" caught my eye and I instantly thought of this guy here but he is from Chesterfield, MO. When Googling both areas they are about 80 miles apart, but the Mississippi runs through the general areas of both cities, Chesterfield being northwest of Chester. All we know so far is that the man recovered from the river is white male, 6' tall. Murphy is listed as 6'2", that's pretty close. I can't find any updates on Murphy since he was first reported missing, I'm assuming that he is still missing? I wonder if there is any chance the man retrieved from the river could be Murphy.
