Details of Disappearance

Donahue was last seen leaving his parents' residence in the 14000 block of Aden Road in Nokesville, Virginia at 3:45 p.m. on March 22, 2010. He and a friend, Timothy Sean Hickerson, left in a Hickerson Brothers Electric box truck. They were supposed to be going to Donahue's own home in the 12000 block of Aden Road. He has never been heard from again.

On the day he went missing, Donahue had been paid $5,000 for some work he'd done. He paid Hickerson $1,000 for helping him with the work. Hickerson was subsequently sent to prison for burglarizing into two local gun stores. He was the last person known to have been with Donahue and is a person of interest in his case, but has never been charged.

Donahue has ties to northern Virginia (particularly Fauquier County), Washington D.C., and Baltimore, Maryland. He didn't have access to a vehicle at the time of his disappearance and frequently got rides from friends to get places. His cellular phone has been turned off since the day of his disappearance. His case remains unsolved.
