William "Bill" Carl Reed (born March 21, 1955) was a man whose skeletal remains were identified in March 2019

Disappearance

Reed was last seen on or around August 13, 1987, in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Another date for his disappearance is December 9, 1987. 

It was believed that he may have been working for local drug dealers, as he was a known drug user and a biker. He used numerous different dates of birth, including March 12, 1955, March 31, 1955, and March 21, 1956.

At the time of his disappearance, Reed was between 5'7"-5'8" (170-172 cm), weighed between 155-175 pounds (70-79 kg), had brown/black hair, brown eyes, and a tattoo of a cross on one of his arms. He had a partial plate on his two front teeth and was last known to be wearing a black shirt and blue jeans.

Discovery

On July 21, 1988, Reed's skeletal remains were discovered in a gully in the town of Chouteau, Oklahoma, approximately 50 miles from Reed's last known location. The remains were estimated to have died as soon as 1988 or as late as 1968. The remains were estimated to be between 24-35 years old, stood at approximately 5'6" (167 cm), and had periodontal disease. He was found wearing overalls and white socks with blue and red trim. 

Identification

In 2007, Reed's case was reopened at the request of his family. Four years later, in 2011, DNA samples were collected from Reed's family members.

In March of 2019, Reed was identified and his case is currently being investigated as a homicide, though the actual cause of death remains unknown.
