    Details of Disappearance

    Parker left Mesquite, Texas on February 14, 1982; he was en route to Rusk, Texas with a friend. He called another friend and said he was having car trouble. He has never been heard from again. Parker's travel companion later returned to Mesquite and said he had dropped Parker off and didn't know what happened to him after that. His car was later found in Mt. Pleasant, Texas; it had been burned and the registration was removed. Foul play is suspected in Parker's case, which remains unsolved. Authorities believe he was taken against his will.
