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.
