Details of Disappearance

Albus was last seen in Tillamook Bay off the Oregon coast on June 14, 2003. He had gone out on a charter fishing boat, the Taki Tooo, and the vessel suddenly capsized. Nine people drowned, among them Albus's brother.

Eight others, all wearing life jackets, survived by swimming a few hundred yards to the beach. Two additional people, Albus and 53-year-old Barry Michael Sundberg, disappearedĀ and are presumed dead. Their bodies have never been located, although several days later searchers did find Albus's sweatshirt stuck on the rocks of the Tillamook Bay jetty.

Photos of Sundberg are unavailable. He's described as Caucasian, 5'9 and 160 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes. He lived in Cheney, Washington at the time of his disappearance; Albus lived in Madras, Oregon.
