Just got around to reading this and as of 4 days ago, his identity has been found!
Fascinating! Definitely deserves an update too, I’ll set a reminder for February 2021. That’s another magical thing technology can do.

If u are an Artistic Foreign Film Lover this article brings to mind an Incredible Magical Realism (largely set meditatively in Nature) film from Portugal called The Ornothologist. Cinematically Rich. I adore it. Viewed it multiple times. Highly Recommended.
Correction: The Ornithologist
There better be an update!
Into the Wild is a great read.
What a creepy end to his journey! The insight into how partial familial DNA tracing works was also super interesting. Hopefully they can track down the guy's immediate family and we can get an update to this story.
