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, repairing cars and working 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. Mr. Hein may have been involved in drugs and was described by some friends as being anti-establishment. It was reported that he had thrown away his driver's license, social security card and may have had no form of identification on him. It is reported that Mr. Hein was depressed and may have been suicidal. Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to please contact the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
