There is a website for Ronald M. Mayercik. From the site:

On the night of 23/24 Nov 1967 an RF-4C (tail number 65-0844) of the 11th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron was lost while on a weather recon mission over North Vietnam. While one report suggests the aircraft went down over the Plain of Jars in Central Laos, no wreckage was ever found. The two crewmen were classed as Missing in Action and remained in that status until the Secretary of the Air Force approved Presumptive Findings of Death for them on the dates indicated:

COL Brendan P. Foley, New York, NY (10/09/1980)
Capt Ronald M. Mayercik, Edison, NJ (07/28/1977)
Their remains have not been recovered."
