Details of Disappearance

Bamford disappeared from Columbia County, Florida on on May 13, 1996. He had just been discharged from a psychiatric facility and was walking home, but never arrived.

In 2002, a hunter found a partial human skull in Lulu, Florida, and a search of the area turned up more human remains. The bones were not identified at the time because the laboratory thought they were found an African-American woman. DNA proved the remains were Bamford's in June 2020.
