    Details of Disappearance

    Lange was last seen near Binger, Oklahoma on March 3, 2016. He lived in Binger at the time of his disappearance, but worked as a ranch hand in Hinton, Oklahoma. On the day of his disappearance he ordered tires at a tire shop in Hinton, and stopped at a convenience store as usual for his daily coffee. He has never been heard from again.

    On March 4, Lange's gold Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck, which has damage to the driver's side window and stickers on the back window, was found on the side of Interstate 40 eastbound, west of the Calumet exit, near mile marker 115. All of Lange's belongings were inside the vehicle, including the keys, and there was no sign of him at the scene. The truck had broken down and it's possible Lange tried to hitchhike out of the area. His case remains unsolved.
