    Details of Disappearance

    Pearson is originally from Clearwater, Washington. His mother last had contact with him on January 22, 1999, when he telephoned her from Hanalei on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. He told her he was going to hike to Kalalau Beach. He has never been heard from again. His mother reported him missing in May of that year.

    Pearson's family went to Hawaii to look for him in late November 1999. They found no sign of him on the nine-mile hike from Hanalei to Kalalau Beach, but they found his abandoned campsite in Hanakapia'i Valley on December 2.

    At the time of his disappearance, Pearson was leading a transient lifestyle, traveling around Kauai and camping with friends that he met. He had originally gone to Hawaii for a two-week vacation, but decided to stay longer because he liked the area so much. His case remains unsolved; he is presumed to have either drowned at Kalalau Beach, or become lost or injured on the way there.
