    Details of Disappearance

    Bonadona was last seen in Pierre Part, Louisiana on April 18, 1997. He has never been heard from again. On April 20, his Ford Explorer was found on a dirt road near a swamp, two miles west of Louisiana 996, near Bruly St. Martin. Bonadona's disappearance wasn't reported until April 21, the day after his abandoned vehicle was found.

    It's uncharacteristic of Bonadona to be out of touch with his family; prior to his disappearance, he was in constant contact with his children. His case remains unsolved.
