    Details of Disappearance

    Swain was last seen in Washington County, North Carolina on February 3, 2008. That evening he attended a party on Jones White Road. He drove a blue 1984 Chevrolet truck he'd borrowed from his father. Swain hit a parked car with his truck, had a verbal altercation with the other driver, and left the gathering. The person whose car he'd hit called the police and then followed Swain's truck down the road, stopping him twice. The police began following Swain's truck, which led them on a high-speed chase; authorities aren't sure whether Swain was in fact driving at the time. The truck eventually crashed into a mailbox on Reek Road and the driver took off on foot.

    Swain has never been heard from again. His family stated he'd never done anything like that before, and foul play is possible in his disappearance. His case remains unsolved.
