If anyone is searching for potential matches it is worth noting that Harpers Ferry is very close in proximity to DC. It is also close to Winchester, VA and not all that far from Baltimore, MD. It is also very near to I-81.
There are two men fitting the description missing from Nogales, but the circumstances pretty much rule one of them out (he apparently died crossing into Mexico and his body was left behind in the desert).
The other is Victor González Mendoza. Hispanic, age is within range, he's from one of the two cities the Kino Wrestling shirt was sold, and it says he may be traveling. Doesn't say where to, so it's possible that he could've ended up in West Virginia.
There's another guy who's from Mesa: Jose Morello. He's white but listed as 'Hispanic/Latino' because he's from Argentina. Age is within range, he's also from one of the two cities that shirt was sold at, and he has a history of running off to travel (he was previously reported missing a few months or years ago and turned up in Los Angeles). It sounds like he may have gone somewhere again because CharleyProject mentioned he may be carrying a backpack full of water bottles and other supplies. Maybe he turned up in West Virginia.
According to this article: http://mdcoastdispatch.com/2013/12/...-w-va-as-possible-link-to-cold-homicide-case/ , it has been suggested that it could be Eduardo Masoller.
Mr. Madoller was 5'6", 52 year old Hispanic male missing Jan 2005 wearing sweatshirt with writing. Match?
An update here: http://mdcoastdispatch.com/2014/01/30/nine-years-later-o-c-homicide-still-an-open-case/
Remains no longer thought to be those of Eduardo Masoller.
Here's the NamUs Casefile for the Harper's Ferry John Doe.
I notice it says race is Native American and ethnicity is Latino/Hispanic. Not an unusual combination in the southwest. I didn't find any viable candidates by searching on that combination, however. There's a person missing from New Mexico in 2003 but she's too young (30) and not male.
