Details of Disappearance

French was last seen in the parking lot of the Salmon Rapids Lodge in Riggins, Idaho on June 29, 2017; he'd traveled to the area on a fishing trip. He was driving a red or burgundy 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche with the Idaho license plate number 9435D.

Police later found pieces of the vehicle on the embankment of U.S. 95 at Fiddle Creek, near mile marker 202. They believe French accidentally went off the road, rolled down the embankment, went into the Salmon River and drowned. His body has never been located.
