Blake Wasde Pursley (14) - Running Springs CA, 1994

Missing Since
: June 26, 1994 from Running Springs, California
: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth
: August 18, 1979
: 14 years old
Height and Weight
: 5'5, 125 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics
: Caucasian male. Brown hair, blue eyes. Pursley has scars on the back of his head, on his left buttock, on his right knee, across his neck, across his abdomen and on his chest. Some agencies may spell his middle name "Wade." His left leg is four inches shorter than his right leg and he walks with a limp as a result.
Clothing/Jewelry Description
: Blue jeans, a purple shirt, a black White Sox baseball cap and tennis shoes.
Medical Conditions
: Pursley suffers from various medical problems as a result of a near-drowning accident he had as a toddler. His difficulties include one paralyzed vocal cord, a life-threatening internal fungus, poor motor skills in his right arm, and seizures. Pursley is required to take daily medication to prevent his seizures and will be in danger without it. His intelligence is unimpaired, but he has learning and behavioral difficulties and functions at the level of a nine-year-old.

Details of Disappearance

Pursley was living at a special needs boarding school, the Cedu School, in Running Springs, California at the time of his disappearance. He had enrolled in the school for less than a month and told his mother he was homesick and wanted to leave. He was last seen at 8:00 p.m. on June 26, 1994 as he walked to a barn on the property to check on the animals. A witness saw a light go on in the barn shortly afterwards. Pursley did not return to the residence by the 10:00 p.m. curfew and and has not been seen again. Searchers tracked him to a nearby highway, but no further.

There were numerous reported sightings of Pursley in Utah in 1994 and 1995, but none of them have been confirmed. He is from Flagler, Colorado and may be somewhere in that state. Many agencies classify Pursley's disappearance as that of an Endangered Runaway. The school officials believe he ran away, but his family thinks he may have been abducted or lured from the school grounds. Curiously, Pursley is not the only student to have disappeared from the Cedu School and never been found; Daniel Yuen apparently ran away from the school in 2004 and has not been located. The Cedu School filed for bankruptcy and closed in 2005.
