Details of Disappearance

Harrigan was last seen in Wilmington, Delaware sometime in February 2005. His family reported him missing on April 23, 2005, after more than two months passed without them hearing from him.

Although Harrigan had previously dropped out of sight for a few days at a time, he had never been gone this long before. He had previously spent time in Jacksonville, Florida and Lakeland, Florida, but police could find no evidence that he traveled there after his 2005 disappearance. His case remains unsolved.
