San Mateo County John Doe was a child whose torso and upper legs were found in 1975. The rest of his remains have never been located.

Another set of remains of a child, preteen, teenager, or young adult male were located in 1977 at the same address.

Initial newspaper reports from the date of discovery said that these remains may have belonged to a child presumed to have been killed in a boating accident a few weeks prior, but the results of testing this theory haven't been released, and the child remains listed on NamUs.
