"The missing man, Jason Patrick Callahan, would now be 38, Evans told police. She described him as approximately 5 10 to 6 00 in height and approximately 160 pounds with wavy brown hair and brown eyes.
While the police report does not indicate why Evans waited two decades to report her son missing, the notification appears connected to the recent social media interest in the 1995 death of an unidentified man dubbed Grateful Doe.
Is this the same Jason from the Illinois photos?
Here is the Police Report for Jason Callahan Lead
Maybe yes, maybe no. It hasn't been confirmed. This article (http://www.thestate.com/2015/01/14/3927630/myrtle-beach-police-investigate.html) says "A photo of Callahan was not immediately available, Crosby said."
I will read the article in a moment, thanks for posting it.
Does the mother think that Illinois Jason is the same person as her son?
SO, of course, the "no known tattoo" statement about Jason Callahan is noteworthy.
I haven't seen her quoted as saying that, but a lot of the articles mention the recent social media push coupled with her 1/12/15 missing persons report.
I don't know whether to cross my fingers that he is a match for Grateful Doe, or to pray that he will be found alive.
At least his disappearance is being investigated finally.
Interesting coincidence. I don't believe this is our Grateful Doe, but I found it interesting nevertheless...
Jason Callahan Killed in Single-Car Accident in Oswego, IL on Minkler, DUI Suspected
*If* this mother is right and her missing son Jason Callahan does turn out to be Grateful Doe, he would've been 37 in 2013. His birthday is 4/19/1976.
It is indeed interesting though. The name, location, single car accident causing fatal injuries...just wow
***edited to correct Jason's age and birth year. Thanks to Jack Straw for the info ***
What is your source? The birth record I saw said 4/18/1976.
Just her FB page, so if you have a birth record, I stand corrected.
You found a birth record? I wasn't able to find anything.

Yes, the birth record has been found. He had a sister who passed away in 2002. His dad passed away in 2009. His mom is the last living member of his core family. He has several half-siblings who are alive.
This guy (the Oswego crash) was born in Ill. I found an obit with a photo.

He has a NamUs profile now.

I'm confused about his age. The mom posted he was 36 in 2013, which would make him born in 1977.
How did he manage to live in Illinois with roomates for a while and then end up where he was in the crash in just a few short weeks?
