Details of Disappearance

Richards was last seen at approximately 7:00 a.m. on February 6, 2003 in the vicinity of the 600 block of Englert Road in Woodland, Washington. He was carrying a blue and black backpack at the time of his disappearance. He left the area on foot, but his vehicle, a blue/gray mid-1980s model Nissan 200SX, is also missing.

Richards's loved ones believe he met with foul play, possibly at the hands of drug dealers, but his case remains unsolved.
