    His brother thinks he is in a truck in the water somewhere; I talked to him. Very sad case. I guess no one will know anything until his truck or body resurfaces. Hopefully, though, he is alive. Of course that is the ideal scenario. But he seems like a family oriented man, not someone who would just pick up and go. So he's probably in harm's way or he met with bad company. :-(

    According to Doe Network, his truck was found in Seattle. Is that not correct or is his brother not aware that they found the truck?

    I'm so sorry, but now I don't know if that was a typo and if I meant to write that his brother thinks his "body" is in the water somewhere (not truck)-- or if he had 2 vehicles.

    I had spoke to David's brother just once in 2013. He had told me that David's car was scrapped. I even just went back to my old log and I had notated that the car was scrapped and damaged. I did send David's brother an email after we spoke, but I didn't hear back from him. I don't want to be a nuisance and message him again, because I don't want to uncover an old wound. But this case has always perplexed me. There were a few other cases in which the cars were found scrapped for parts-- local to this-- around the same time, and all men of similar ages.

    Oh ok, I just thought Doe Network might have been wrong.

    This is an interesting case. I came across it today for the first time while researching the case of David Sampson who was also 21 and disappeared from Seattle that same year.
