    Details of Disappearance

    Hume was last seen in Trinity County, California at 2:00 p.m. on April 7, 2012. He got into a car accident on Highway 299 that day and drove his red 1974 MGB convertible into the Trinity River west of Junction City. Rafters in the area witnessed the accident and one of them dove in and saw the car submerged in ten feet of water and Hume seat-belted in the driver's seat, unconscious. The driver cut the seat belt strap, then had to resurface for air. By the time he came back down, Hume had been carried downriver by the current. He never emerged from the water. Hume is presumed to have drowned, but his body hasn't been recovered in spite of an extensive search.
