In 1981 Gerald Douglas Oxby went missing in Key West, Florida

Is this my father?

with one comment

Recently a clever helper in Florida made me aware of a  “John Doe” found in Florida. The body was found on Alligator Road inside the Everglades. It is mentioned in the case file, that the person was caucasian but had asian traits – something I have heard before in descriptions of my father.

Does it look like my father

My father on the left and on the right a skecth of a "John Doe"

Along with the “John Doe” (the sketch on the rigth) there was found some jewlery. See the picture below. Also it was mentioned in the case file that the unknown person died around the same time as my father disappeared in Key West (august 1981).

The reason of the persons dead is not described. Read it all here






Jewlery and a Timex watch

My father used to tell people that he was of  native american descent. Maybe this indian head ring (in the middle of the picture below ) is part of this story. My father was from Wales in the UK and as far as I know, he had no asian nor native american roots – but his eyes did look a bit “chinese”.

Could this jewlery belong to Gerald Douglas Oxby
