    Donald Cary Ewalt​
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Missing since September 1979 from El Centro, Imperial County, California
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Vital Statistics
    Date Of Birth: September 30, 1957
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 22 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'9"; 120 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White male. Black hair; hazel eyes.
    Dentals: Not available.

    Circumstances of Disappearance

    Donald Ewalt was last seen in September of 1979, after work with three male individuals. Foul play is possible.

    The California Department of Justice lists him as a voluntary missing adult (I am not really sure of their reasons).

    The El Centro Police Department and Texas Department of Public Safety are the investigating agencies. I think Donald Ewalt may have gone to high school in either San Antonio, El Paso, or Odessa, Texas.

    I noticed an unidentified person who was discovered on March 16, 1980 in Coachella, Riverside County, California

    According to the Riverside County Coroner:

    No rule outs were listed on the NamUS site, so I e-mailed Riverside County to ask who the rule outs were (expecting to hear that Donald Cary Ewalt was on the list of rule outs). I was a little surprised by the response I received from Rick Bogan, an investigator with the Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner:

    It's been 33 years this month since Donald Ewalt went missing. Hopefully, he will be found soon.

    Donald Ewalt is now in NamUs -- https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/14858/161

    I'm not sure if Riverside County was ever able to exhume John "Indescribably Delicious" Doe, but his NamUs page https://identifyus.org/cases/7201 still does not list any rule outs.

    Another unidentified young man was recently added to NamUs from Imperial County (the county Donald Ewalt was missing from) -- https://identifyus.org/en/cases/13181. The circumstances of the UID are described as --

    Per Yahoo Maps, Brawley is about 14 miles from El Centro, the city Donald was last seen. Also, NamUs UP #13181 is believed to have died between 1979 and 1984.

    I believe that Donald Ewalt has been submitted as possibility for an UID in Sacramento and Florida by other Websleuths members; if anyone has heard back?
