Jeffrey Leland Lowery was born on June 10, 1958 and lived in San Luis Obispo.
His mother reported him missing on September 11, 1983, but he had last been seen two years before when she drove him to a county mental health facility for treatment of severe depression.
When the two arrived at the mental health facility on Johnson Avenue, Lowery jumped out of his mother's car and ran away.
Family and friends searched for Lowery for two years before reporting him as missing to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office.
At the time of his disappearance, Lowery was described as 5'8" tall and 150 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.
