Details of Disappearance
John was last seen in Running Springs, California on January 16th 1993. He disappeared from the Cedu School. The school was meant for troubled teens and mentally handicapped teens and was considered a therapeutic boarding school. Inman is beloved to have left on his own accord and may have traveled to Los Angeles, California after he disappeared.
John is not the only student at Cedu School to disappear. One year after he disappeared, 14 year old Blake Pursley disappeared after he went outside to go and check on animals they had there. He has never been heard from again. In 2004, 16 year old Daniel Yuen ran away from the school and was never seen again.
There is no link between the cases other than the fact that all 3 teenagers disappeared from the same place and that two of them are considered runaway’s. The school filed for bankruptcy and closed in 2005.
Johns disappearance remains unsolved.
