Details of Disappearance

Doane was last seen in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 28, 2009. He got into an argument with his live-in girlfriend and left home in his vehicle. He was depressed and unhappy at the time of his disappearance because he hadn't worked in a long time and couldn't find a job.

Doane apparently tried to call his girlfriend after he left home, but he was unable to reach her. He has never been heard from again.

The next day, a park ranger found his vehicle in the Desert National Wildlife Range, 40 miles east of Interstate 95 and Lee Canyon Road. Footprints led away from the car into the wilderness.

The circumstances of Doane's disappearance are unclear. His case remains unsolved.
