    Details of Disappearance

    Lorang was last seen in Galway, New York on July 31, 2001. He has never been heard from again. He was reported missing by his father several days later. Lorang lived in the 2200 block of Cook Road in Charlton, New York at the time of his disappearance, and also ran an auto detailing business there. When the police searched his residence, they found what they characterized as "explosive devices" in his garage. Lorang's father stated the explosive devices were hunting rifles, black powder and handguns.

    Lorang has no criminal record and no history of erratic behavior, and he was behaving normally prior to his disappearance. It's uncharacteristic of him to be out of touch with his family. He was last known to be driving a 1994 Chryler LaBarron convertible sedan with New York license plates; this vehicle was found abandoned in Albany, New York several weeks later. He is an ex-marine who attended Schenectady High School. His father stated he was known to carry large amounts of cash and he believes Lorang was mugged and killed.
