Details of Disappearance

Wright was last seen in Juneau, Alaska on December 5, 2000. He left the home he shared with his father without saying anything to him, and without money or transportation. He has never been heard from again.

Wright has a history of dropping out of sight for days at a time, but he's never been gone for this long. His sister reported him missing three weeks after he was last seen. When his father died in 2018, in his obituary, Wright was listed as having predeceased him. Few details are available in his case.
