About this Case:

22 year old Mitchell Hein moved out of his parent's house in Golden, Colorado in 1980. He traveled extensively over the next three years working odd jobs such as rebuilding boats, a car mechanic and work in the oil fields. He was known to have been in Houston, Texas, Galveston, Texas, Clinton, Oklahoma, Neosho, Missouri, and Indio, California. Mr. Hein would send his parents postcards and would visit once a year during Christmas holidays. In December, 1982 Mr. Hein came home to Colorado for a visit and abruptly left in late January or early February 1983 without saying goodbye to anyone. He was carrying his clothes and belongings in a black trash bag. According to a friend, Mr. Hein showed up in Clinton, Oklahoma and then in early March 1983 he hitched a ride with a friend's father to California. When they stopped for the night in Indio, California Mr. Hein left the hotel room and has not been seen or heard from since.
