Marx Panama Moriarty Barnes grew up as Steven Carter. He says he has lived a happy life, but one day he saw a story on CNN about a woman who discovered she was a missing child and started his own internet search. Steven Carter put into an Internet search engine, “Hawaii, male, missing for 34 years” and low and behold an aged progression pic came up.

“Pulled up Hawaii, male, missing for 34 years and lo and behold the composite picture of Marx Panama Moriarty Barnes pops up,” Carter said.
