Comparison of Nicolas Bolton and the body. Notice the similarities in the nose, hair and hoodie.

Nicolas Bolton was roughly 18-21 years of age when he disappeared in some time in early 1990 [Autopsy Report]. His body was later found in the Backrooms on 3rd February 1990 [Missing Persons], and a subsequent autopsy on 5th February dated his death to (approximately) 31st January, likely due to starvation [Autopsy Report].

The decomposition of Bolton's corpse was found to be abnormal, with a mutant strain of Bacillus subtilis having overtaken various parts of his body by the time he was discovered [Autopsy Report].


  • The phone number on Nicolas Bolton's missing person poster is 707 340-3036. It is unknown if calling it will reveal any information, though it seems unlikely. The area code, 707, corresponds to north-western California, indicating his place or residence as of 1990. This information points to his birthplace being California. However, this is only a possibility.
  • Bolton's cause of death suggests that he was stuck in the Backrooms for roughly 8 to 21 days before dying, placing the date of his disappearance in early to mid January of 1990.
  • On the date Nicolas Bolton's body was discovered, the number 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 was "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You" by Michael Bolton, a famous singer sharing the same last name as Nicolas Bolton. Many people believe that this is not a coincidence.
  • The photo of Nicolas Bolton is actually the photo of a young Nathan Barnatt, known for being a famous American actor. Nathan Barnatt also is a famous youtuber by the name of Dad which is confirmed by Kane in an older video from before the Backrooms series. Dad is said to be friends with Kane and has worked with him in the past.
  • Though the photo is black in white, we know Nathan Barnatt, the actor of Nicolas Bolton has green eyes. This means that Nicolas too has green eyes.
