Details of Disappearance

Lee is from Arizona, but he was last seen in Williston, North Dakota on June 1, 2013. He borrowed a truck from a friend that day and was supposed to return it that evening, but never did. He has never been heard from again. His friend reported Lee and the truck missing the following day.

The borrowed truck was later found abandoned on privately owned farmland south of the Epping Springbrook Dam. 200 yards away, next to a creek, were Lee's boots and his socks. An extensive search of the creek and the surrounding area turned up no other sign of him, however. The circumstances of his disappearance are unclear and his case remains unsolved.
