David Vernon Lovely (19) - Fort Bridger WY, 1985
David Vernon Lovely
Missing From: Fort Bridger, Wyoming
Missing Since: August 5, 1985
Age: 19 -- Height: 6'4" -- Weight: 160 lbs -- Hair Color: Blonde/Brown -- Eye Color: Blue
David has scars across his abdomen, below his ribcage.
David was last seen in Fort Bridger, Wyoming. The story of his disappearance is baffling. Although the last time his family heard from him was August 5, 1985, the case didn't come to the Sweetwater County Sheriff's Office until nine days later when some campers found his abandoned burgundy 1978 Yamaha motorcycle near Baxter Road.
David had become separated from his family during a cross-country move. According to police reports, David's mother was driving a large U-Haul truck and he was was driving the motorcycle. They stopped every 30 miles to check on David. When they got to Evanston, David's mother and sister wanted to stop, but he wanted to keep going. He left the two, telling them he would wait for them at a rest stop further east. They never saw him again.
The last time he was heard from was a call to his aunt. He told her he had had trouble with his motorcycle and pushed it into the Bingo Truck Stop in Fort Bridger. A "rough looking" man on a motorcycle worked on the bike and "fixed it better than it was," David told his aunt. He also told her he was afraid of the man who fixed the motorcycle.
The family and authorities rode the area where the motorcycle was found with ATVs and searched all around there. The keys were left in the bike and it had a half tank of gas. It was in running condition. However, no sign of the young man was ever found.
