    Details of Disappearance

    Parker was last seen with a cousin at approximately 6:00 p.m. on April 11, 2004, at the North Sherwood Forest Park in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Parker left his car, a red 1993 Pontiac Grand Am, behind the treeline in the northwest corner of the park and left his cousin inside the vehicle while he went into the park. He said he wanted to look for a cellular phone holder which he had lost. Parker never returned. A search for him uncovered only his cellular phone and one of his shoes about fifty yards from where his car was parked.

    Parker's loved ones are puzzled by his disappearance; he has not gone missing before and never even spent the night away from home without telling his parents. He worked at Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers and attended Baton Rouge Community College at the time of his disappearance. Parker had seen the movie The Passion of the Christ shortly before his disappearance and was deeply moved by it. After watching the film, he told his family members he would be "leaving soon." It is unknown what Parker meant by this statement or whether the film had anything to do with his disappearance.

    Parker's case remains unsolved.
