Details of Disappearance

Sundberg was last seen in Tillamook Bay off the Oregon coast on June 14, 2003. He had gone out on a charter fishing boat, the Taki Tooo, and the vessel suddenly capsized. Nine people drowned. Eight others, all wearing life jackets, survived by swimming a few hundred yards to the beach.

Two additional people, Sundberg and Timothy Albus, disappeared and are presumed dead. Their bodies have never been located, although several days later searchers did find Albus's sweatshirt stuck on the rocks of the Tillamook Bay jetty.

Sundberg lived in Cheney, Washington at the time of his disappearance; Albus lived in Madras, Oregon.
