    Details of Disappearance

    Hiatt was last seen standing in his backyard on Byham Road in Winlock, Washington on December 3, 2007. He has never been heard from again. Authorities believe he fell into Waller's Creek. Heavy rains had caused major flooding in the area at the time; 500 people had to be rescued, and one person drowned.

    An extensive search of the floodwaters turned up a man's coat which Hiatt's son and daughter-in-law say belonged to him, but which his wife didn't recognize. Hiatt's body has never been recovered and he remains classified as a missing person. He is a retired Weyerhaeuser dock worker.
