Details of Disappearance

Dugger was last seen in Warroad, Minnesota at 6:30 a.m. on August 11, 2012. He lived in Rochert, Minnesota at the time, and worked for a trucking company based in Warroad.

He had just returned from a long haul to the eastern U.S. and was unloading his personal belongings from his truck and putting them in his car. He has never been heard from again.

On August 18, Dugger's Hyundai Elantra was found stuck in the mud on an ATV trail near the Winner Silo, ten miles west of Skeim, in the Beltrami Island State Forest. Footprints led away from the vehicle, south out to the Winner Forest Road near the Elkwood Cemetery.

Searchers located Dugger's glove two miles from where his car had been, but there was no other sign of him. Authorities could find no indication that he'd left of his own accord. His case remains unsolved.
