Details of Disappearance Heath was last seen in Bonneville County, Idaho on April 1, 1986. He and his friend were fishing in an aluminum boat on the South Fork of the Snake River, about a quarter-mile downstream from the Palisades Dam. Their anchor rope got tangled in the boat's propeller, and as a result, the boat started filling with water and began to sink.
Both people jumped into the water and tried to swim to shore. Heath's companion made it, but Heath, who was not wearing a life jacket, was unable to reach the shore and was last seen drifting downstream out of sight. He is presumed drowned, but his body has never been located.
