Details of Disappearance

Anderson was last seen in Galveston, Texas on November 27, 2022. He rented a 22-foot center console boat witha blue bimini top from Galveston Yacht Basin at 2:30 p.m. that day for three hours, and never returned it at the end of the rental period. He had intended to visit SS Selma, a sunken concrete ship in the Galveston Ship Channel, and then returning before sunset.

Anderson has never been heard from again. His rented boat was found washed ashore in Corpus Christi, Texas, and after a search, the Coast Guard called off efforts to find him, saying his chances of survival by that point were "essentially zero." He is presumed lost at sea.
