Myrtle Beach police officers have opened an investigation into the case of a man reported missing from the area who could be linked to the Grateful Doe case that has been highlighted on social media recently, Lt. Joey Crosby said Wednesday.
On Tuesday, a report was filed by a 63-year-old woman that her son, Jason Callahan, who would be 38, has not been seen or heard from since June of 1995, police said.
“At that time he left to follow the band Grateful Dead,” Crosby said Wednesday. “The investigation began as a result of information obtained from the ‘Grateful Doe’ social media efforts. The Myrtle Beach Police Department is working with other agencies to determine if Jason Callahan is ‘Grateful Doe’ by collecting DNA samples which have been sent off for evaluation.”
In the report, Callahan is described as being a white male with wavy blonde hair and brown eyes. He was between 5 feet 10 inches tall to 6 feet tall and weighed about 160 pounds.
