I saw a TV show about a missing girl the other night. It took several months for her to be identified because the missing report listed the date (for last known alive) as the date the report was taken. The person who entered it never entered the last seen date.
So the body was found in Sept. but the report had January on it so the connection was never made until the mother insisted on a dental records check in about March.
I'm just wondering how many times that blunder may have been made in the past and how it may effect cases such as this.
I'm familiar with this area. The Pinnacle is a pretty popular hiking area, especially in the fall when you get great views. It's well known, anyway, and it's a bit of a stretch, I think, to assume this unknown man was involved with Beth and baby Doe. It's possible, of course, but I don't think there's any reason to connect the two.
