    Details of Disappearance

    McClary lived in Reno, Nevada in 2002. He was vacationing in Gladwin County, Michigan with his wife when he disappeared. He had never been to Michigan before and is not familiar with the area. He was last seen at 6:30 p.m. on July 2. He had said he wanted to swim in the Tittabawasee River near the cabin where he was staying, but his wife advised against it. He left the cabin anyway to go back to the river and never returned. McClary left behind his glasses, his wallet, and his medication. Divers searched the Tittabawasee River for five days, but turned up no clues as to his whereabouts.

    McClary is a partner in the Washoe Wine and Cheese of Reno, Nevada, and the Great Basin Brewery Company of Sparks, Nevada. He has won state and national championships for his beer. He is the son of son of political activist and 1974 U.S. Senate candidate Maya Miller, and was board chairman of the Foresta Institute, a nonprofit environmental organization his parents founded. McClary has reviewed music and films for the Las Vegas Gazette-Journal, and has also been employed as a scuba instructor and property manager. His case remains unsolved. Authorities believe McClary could not have survived long on his own and is now deceased.
