An interesting new article on this case with some more info that the Wiki entry - http://observer.com/2012/07/the-mysterious-disappearance-of-peter-winston/
Here are a couple more blog entries...
By coincidence a thread I subscribe to (NY - Plainview - Male (Namus #140), 23-57, March 2004) was bumped up a few days ago, and someone posted a possibility of Peter Winston as being an unidentified body that meets several criteria. I posted more on that thread, but I'm posting the picture of the reconstructed face of the body along with Peter's face. I think it's a very good possibility, especially after reading the "Observer" article.
PS - Just noticed that you,bodhi, were the one that posted both!

I didn't realize Peter Winston had gone missing. I always wondered what happened to him.
Back in November 2010, Tony Evelina with the doe network posted in the comments section of this blog... He sounds like he is/was working on a case file for Peter... I couldn't find anything on the doenetwork.com The other day when I looked... I wonder if he's still interested....
I wonder if he was never reported missing, or if his report has been lost.
Here is the article with the most info on his disappearance:
According to the article, NYPD was unaware he was missing until the media approached them for information in 2012.
I know we have the picture, but, I wish we had height/weight etc on Peter. I think he looks a lot like the Plainview reconstruction. A LOT.
I agree - and the fact that NYPD has no report on him makes it all the more likely, IMO...
Wow, I have never heard of this. How sad I hope he has found peace.
wow the pictures resemble each other a lot. doesn't it take time before someone is registered on a missing person's website?
I am so angry that this young man was not reported missing back when he disappeared. It's almost like no one cared enough to do anything except make a few phone calls. Then again, there isn't even alot of info out there about him now, save a couple of articles and those were written only in the last few years. Here's hoping that someone will get Peter on Charley or Doe.
He may have been reported. LE at the time would most likely have told the people reporting it that he was an adult and entitled to go where he pleased, and left it at that.
I don't see any updates for Peter and I couldn't find a Namus or Doenet page for him, at least not viewable by the public. In the Plainview UID thread, CarlK indicated that they were trying to start one but couldn't because of the lack of a missing persons report.
