Details of Disappearance

David was last seen in the 2600 block of Lola Lane in Shreveport, Louisiana on February 7, 1971. He was en route to a school function at Centenary College at the time, and may have decided to hitchhike there. He was a senior at Byrd High School at the time of his disappearance, and may have been attending a Homecoming event at the college. He apparently never arrived there and has never been heard from again.

His family stated he had no reason to leave home, and he left behind his senior class ring and $200 in his bank account, which has been untouched since 1971. His family never believed he left of his own accord. Foul play is suspected in David's case, which remains unsolved.
