Details of Disappearance

Dalton was last seen in Peterstown, West Virginia at 5:00 p.m. on March 26, 2007. He visited his mother that day and she said he was behaving normally. He has never been heard from again.

Two and a half weeks later, Dalton's vehicle, a burgundy or maroon 1991 Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck with the Virginia license plate number KCA-2601, was found abandoned behind a bank building in town, with the driver's side window broken. There was no sign of him at the scene and no indications that a struggle had taken place.

Dalton made a living cutting firewood and brush at the time of his disappearance. Although there's no evidence of foul play in his case, it's uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning and his family is concerned for his safety. He left all his belongings behind at home. His case remains unsolved.
