    Details of Disappearance

    Border was last seen on November 1, 2007 at the post office in Littleton, Colorado. He has never been heard from again. In mid-November, his blue 1997 Ford F-150 was located abandoned in the Rio Grande National Forest of Colorado, near the Big Springs picnic area. The keys were still in the ignition, but the vehicle's license plate was missing. There was no sign of Border at the scene.

    Border's family believes he may have driven to the Rio Grande National Forest with the intention of taking his own life. They describe him as a loner who wasn't close to his relatives. Border canceled the lease on his rental home and gave his keys back to his landlord prior to his disappearance. He also failed to renew his van's registration.

    Border is a former engineer. He grew up in Montana. An extensive search of the forest turned up no sign of him, and it's possible he left the area after abandoning his vehicle. His case remains unsolved.
