Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado is seeking assistance from the public to locate Mitchell Todd Hein. Hein visited family in Jefferson County, Colorado, in December of 1982 and abruptly left in January or February of 1983 without saying goodbye to anyone. He was carrying his clothes and belongings in a black trash bag. According to a friend, Hein showed up in Clinton, Oklahoma, and then in early March 1983, Hein hitched a ride with the friend's father to California. They stopped for the night in Indio, California. Hein left the hotel room and has not been seen or heard from since. It was reported that Hein had thrown away his driver's license and social security card and may have had no form of identification on him.
