Details of Disappearance

Alexander was last seen in Burlington, Vermont on January 28, 1985. He left his parents' Berlin, New Hampshire residence after packing his car in order to return to college.

He is known to have arrived there; he parked his green Mazda in front of the Lane Press offices in the 300 block of St. Paul Street, then walked to a friend's home a few doors down. Alexander left his friend's residence at 11:00 p.m. and has never been heard from again. Four days later, his Mazda was found buried in the snow where he'd parked it.

In addition to being able to drive a car, Alexander also knew how to ride a motorcycle in 1985. His family stated they don't believe he would have chosen to walk out of his life, particularly without a vehicle. Authorities believe he was taken against his will. Few details are available in his case.
