    Details of Disappearance

    Choate was last seen riding a pink four-wheeler in Bonnieville, Kentucky at noon on September 14, 1993. He had left his father-in-law's home and was supposed to wait for his child to get off the school bus. He never arrived and has never been heard from again. His grandparents, who had raised him, reported him missing three days later.

    Choate has a history of leaving home and traveling great distances, as far as Florida and California, but he always returned home. After his 1993 disappearance, he was never heard from again. Foul play is suspected in his case; investigators believe he was murdered.
