Details of Disappearance

Dean was last seen on January 14, 2020. During a heavy snowfall, he decided to drive from Neah Bay to Port Angeles, Washington, a distance of about seventy miles. He has never been heard from again.

That same day, his white 2007 Toyota Camry with the Washington license plate number BKP7728 was found in a ditch along Highway 112, near mile post 26. This is about ten miles from Clallam Bay, Washington. There was no sign of Dean at the scene, but footprints in the snow led west away from the car in the direction of Neah Bay.

Dean's case remains unsolved. An extensive search turned up no sign of him.
