Details of Disappearance

Douglas was last seen in Anacortes, Washington on November 5th 1992. He originally ran away from his home and was living with a friend in the area. He was sleeping on his friends sofa and also enrolled in Anacortes High School. His welcome was limited since the friends dad asked him to leave.

Douglas was going to hitchhike back home to Oak Harbor, Washington. His mother and sisters were not aware that he was coming back that day. He never arrived to his family’s home and was never seen or heard from again. Douglas has gotten into trouble before his disappearance. He became involved with drugs and was also arrested for burglary.

He was going to spend time at a juvenile detention center for the burglary. Investigators originally suspected that he left on his own accord to escape incarceration. Foul play is now considered a possibility in his disappearance. Prior to his disappearance, Douglas had received threats. His mother also hear rumors that he was murdered in a drug deal gone wrong.

Investigators have revised the possibility he left on his own since he left his wallet, identification, and personal belongings behind at his home. Some agencies might list his date of disappearance as August 31st 1994; this is incorrect. His case remains unsolved.
