Details of Disappearance

Anderson resided in an apartment in San Rafael, California in early 1980. He planned to meet his parents in Jamaica during February of that year and purchased an airplane ticket for his vacation. Anderson never arrived for the plane's departure from San Francisco International Airport in California on February 17. There was no sign of him inside of his residence and he has never been heard from again.

Authorities learned that an arrest warrant had been issued for Anderson in February 1980. The warrant charged him with a parole violation and automobile theft. It is not known whether Anderson left of his own accord as a result of the charges, or if other factors were involved in his disappearance. His case remains unsolved.
