    Details of Disappearance

    Ogle was last seen fishing offshore from the municipal wharf in Santa Cruz, California on May 16, 1994. Conditions for fishing that day were poor: the water was choppy with waves three to four feet in height, and the wind exceeded 20 miles per hour. Ogle has never been heard from again. Two boaters recovered his boat, a 12-foot rental model with an outboard motor, which was floating in Monterrey Bay a mile and a half offshore. Searchers also found his lifejacket and fishing tackle. Ogle is presumed to have drowned.
