    Details of Disappearance

    James was last seen in Montgomery, Alabama on November 23, 1998. He had an argument with his mother and left her home angrily. He has never been heard from again. He was carrying somewhere between $6,000 and $14,000 in cash on him when he disappeared; a married girlfriend had allegedly given him the money so he could move away and start a new life. James's car was found on Interstate 65 near Evergreen, Alabama, over 80 miles from his mother's home, in March 1999.

    Authorities initially believed James traveled to Florida or to Mobile, Alabama after his disappearance and sought work in the construction industry, but now he is considered a probable homicide victim. He has a criminal record and once served time in prison for burglary. His case remains unsolved.
