    Details of Disappearance

    LaChance was last seen leaving his residence in the 1600 block of south Juniper in Escondido, California at approximately 6:00 p.m. on November 28, 1995. He never returned home and has not been heard from again. He has a history of walking away from home after arguments, but had always returned before.

    LaChance hadn't made any travel plans prior to his disappearance, and since he was last seen there hasn't been any activity on his bank accounts or credit cards. He had worked as a pilot for United Airlines, but had retired by 1995. Although little evidence is available in his case, foul play is suspected.
