    Details of Disappearance

    Westover was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1999. He went through radiation treatments and his cancer went into remission. In March 2005, Westover told his loved ones that his cancer had returned. He said he was going to Canada to visit friends. Westover asked a family friend for a ride to the Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania bus station, but later said he had found another ride. He was last seen on March 5, 2005. After his disappearance, Westover's family discovered he had not in fact experienced a cancer recurrence, and he never caught the bus out of Punxsutawney. He left his belongings and identification at his home. His case remains unsolved.
