    Details of Disappearance
    Yeager was last seen in the 2600 block of Lola Lane in Shreveport, Louisiana on February 7, 1971. He was en route to a school function at Centenary College at the time, and may have decided to hitchhike there. He apparently never arrived at the college and has never been heard from again.

    His family stated he had no reason to leave home, and since Yeager's disappearance, his bank account hasn't been touched. Foul play is suspected in his case, which remains unsolved.

    It looks like he has a cousin looking for him on Facebook and they have more pictures of him.

    Sad, strange disappearance of David Yeager; Shreveport’s oldest missing persons case | ArkLaTexHomepage

    Shreveport, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – It is one of Shreveport’s oldest unsolved cases, the story of a teenager who left home one day and was never seen again.

    The investigation into 17-year-old David Yeager’s disappearance yielded no clues and left his family wondering what happened to him for decades. Though presumed dead, the efforts of his cousin have kept his story alive.

    It was 1971 in Shreveport, and Yeager was close to graduating from Byrd High School. He had his senior ring and $200 in his bank account. He lived with his mom, who was a single parent, and his older brother at a home on Lola Lane off Mansfield Road. It was the last place his family saw him.

    On February 6, 1971, Yeager told his brother he was headed to Centenary College for a school event. The Archives Department of Centenary College confirmed it was Homecoming weekend with a series of events held throughout the day. However, the teen never made it there.

    Did he know any student at Centenial College? I mean, maybe an old student of Byrd High School... otherwise, I don't get why David wanted to attend the meeting.

    Maybe just a high schooler wanting to join in the homecoming celebrations? Or, he might have been thinking of attending that school after graduation? Good question.
