Craig was seen leaving his home in the 400 block of Washington Avenue in Whitesboro about 6:00 pm, with a relative in a pickup truck. The two men were reportedly headed to the woods to cut some poles. Craig told relatives he would be "right back," left a music box playing and the door to his room unlocked. He left money and other personal items there. The relative said he saw Craig get into a dark vehicle with two women on West Main Street in Whitesboro on February 24.

Craig and the cousin with whom he was last seen were having problems because Craig was allegedly seeing the cousin's girlfriend. Craig was to babysit his son, who was 2 at the time. When the child’s mother went to Craig’s home to drop off the child, she found Craig missing.

His mother didn't report Craig missing until a week later, hoping his disappearance was the case of a young man running off for a while. Authorities at first believed he may have fled the area after his arrest on a minor narcotics charge following a sweep of housing projects in Cape May County. However, he has been known to show up for his court appearances - up until his disappearance.

In the following weeks, police and civilians spent hours combing the woods of Whitesboro looking for him. Craig attended Middle Township High School, but dropped out in the 10th grade. He later worked with C&C Sanitation and at an Erma bus garage. He was unemployed at the time of his disappearance. Foul play is suspected.

An indictment was handed up on April 17, 2007 against Craig's cousin, for the murder of Craig White in 1990. The indictment alleges the cousin purposely or knowingly caused the death of Craig White in February 1990. He is awaiting trial. Craig has never been located.
