Details of Disappearance Jones was last seen by his family in Gulf Breeze, Florida on March 31, 2011. He left home at noon and headed west in his light blue Oldsmobile Delta 88 with Florida license plates, no hubcaps and a dark blue vinyl top. He didn't take anything else with him besides his laptop. He has never been heard from again.
On May 5, a park ranger found Jones's car abandoned at the south rim visitor center at Grand Canyon National Park. Jones had not been reported missing at the time, but his parents filed the report after the park ranger told them about the car. Inside the vehicle was an itinerary with a route including various California cities and Denver, Colorado.
Jones didn't have a cellular phone at the time of his disappearance. His case remains unsolved and he may have gotten lost or injured in the wilderness.
