Details of Disappearance

Hamilton disappeared from Bastrop, Texas on May 2, 2015. He left driving his father's gray 2008 GMC Envoy with the license plate number CDM 1740 and never returned. On May 4, he was allegedly sighted entering and leaving a Best Buy store on Highway 71 in Bastrop. The car was found abandoned in the store's parking lot.

On May 5, Hamilton's family got a call from him on someone else's cellular phone. He sounded incoherent and when his father said he was going to go pick him up, Hamilton hung up. He reportedly also called his girlfriend to say he had been robbed.

He has never been heard from again. He left his driver's license behind, and there has been no activity on his Social Security number or credit cards.

Hamilton's family believes he may be in the Baton Rouge or New Orleans areas of Louisiana. Few details are available in his case.
