Details of Disappearance

Letney was last seen on November 1, 1986. He had recently moved to Alaska from Zavalla, Texas to seek work, and planned to bring his three young daughters to stay with him when he got settled.

Investigators determined Letney crossed the Canadian border, saying he was going back to Texas. He may have attempted to travel to Bonweir or Orange, Texas. He apparently never arrived and it's unclear exactly where he went missing. He was allegedly reported missing in Angelina County, Texas sometime in 1987, but the record of this report has been lost.

Letney has never been heard from again. Texas authorities are assisting in the investigation into his disappearance.
