Details of Disappearance

Galloway was last seen leaving his home in Sonora, California on January 13, 2016. He has never been heard from again. The weather on the night of his disappearance was very cold and he left underdressed for the weather; he didn't even have a jacket on.

Since Galloway's disappearance, he hasn't accessed his bank accounts. His phone was turned off thirty minutes after he left the house, and was never turned back on. He is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who served from 2000 to 2003, and he left behind two young children.

Galloway is originally from Santa Cruz, California and may have been sighted in that area after his disappearance. His mother believes he may have had a mental illness episode or lost his memory. His case remains unsolved.
