Details of Disappearance
Bowman was last seen in Twin Falls, Idaho on October 10, 2010. On October 5, he had accidentally been given twice his normal paycheck. Bowman promised he would give the extra money back to his employer.
However, that night he bought a car and a prepaid cellular phone, and three days later when his roommates woke up, Bowman and his belongings were gone. The last time his phone was used was on October 14, and his accounts haven't been accessed since he disappeared.
Bowman's family in California reported him missing on January 21, 2011, after he didn't contact them over Thanksgiving or Christmas. On May 7 of that year, a hunter found his vehicle in a remote area off a dirt road ten miles from Wells, Nevada; it had collided with a tree.
The vehicle had evidently been parked there throughout the winter months. Bowman's luggage and his keys were inside it, but there was no sign of him. He is considered missing under suspicious circumstances and his case remains unsolved.
