    Details of Disappearance

    Proctor was last seen at The Lake Houmas Inn, his place of residence, in Houma, Lousiana on July 17, 2001. He is originally from Moulton, Alabama. He moved to Louisiana in 2000 after accepting a job at an offshore oil patch. Proctor was injured sometime afterwards, but his family members said he chose to remain in Houma. Proctor was fascinated with the wildlife in the region and often looked in swamps for turtles and other creatures. Authorities conducted searches in marshes and other areas, but no trace of Proctor was found.

    Proctor's relatives visited Houma the week after he disappeared. They became concerned when he did not contact his loved ones or pay his rent. Both were uncharacteristic of him. All of his personal belongings and identification were left behind in his room. Proctor may be somewhere in Louisiana or Alabama. He may hitchhike or he may be travel by bus. Proctor's case remains unsolved.
