    Details of Disappearance

    O'Kane was last seen at his place of employment in Sacramento, California on May 28, 1991. He said he was going to Texas to help an elderly uncle. O'Kane has never been heard from again. He left his car and his mechanic's tools behind. After his disappearance, his sister stated O'Kane had no uncle in Texas. She described him as mentally unstable and said he abused cocaine. O'Kane had left without warning for extended time periods before; as a result, he wasn't reported missing until August 12, 1991, three and a half months after he was last seen. His case remains unsolved.
