    Details of Disappearance

    Loukthayoth was last seen near his family's residence on Crescent Street in Raymond, Washington on February 6, 1996. He apparently left home after an argument with his parents and has never been heard from again. His bedroom door was locked, and a screen had been removed from the window. Loukthayoth's loved ones said that it is uncharacteristic for him to leave without warning.

    Foul play is suspected in Loukthayoth's case. He may have been sighted in Oregon after his disappearance, but this has not been confirmed. His case remains unsolved.
