1882?  Wow... that's a long time ago.  I doubt he's been able to tread water all this time.

We may have to get Scooby and Shaggy out of retirement for this one.

The thing is his remains are still out there.

One day they'll be found and the police will be stumped at who it might be.

If someone in British Columbia can find the remains on a beach of someone missing for 200 years then I am sure just over 100 years for this man will be easy.
