Details of Disappearance

Turner was last seen at his home in Yakima, Washington at 9:00 p.m. on July 26, 2015. He shared the residence with his father and paternal grandmother. Turner had been out most of the day, but came home in the evening to take a shower, change some clothes and have something to eat.

He left the house, saying they'd see him tomorrow, and he has never been been heard from again. Since July 28, two days after he went missing, all calls to his cellular phone have gone straight to voice mail.

Turner left behind a young daughter. Although he has a history of methamphetamine use and was probably using drugs and associating with other users at the time of his disappearance, it's uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning; he rarely spent the night away from home. His family believes he met with foul play.

Two other young men disappeared from Yakima in the same month; one was later found alive in another state, and the other, Chad Stotz-Gomez, is still missing. The two men knew each other and there have been rumors that Turner's and Stotz-Gomez's disappearances are connected, but police haven't found any hard evidence of this. Turner's case remains unsolved.
