Vital Statistics


Circumstances of Disappearance
Steven Needham suffers from schizophrenia and is an alcoholic. At the time of his disappearance he was taking medication for his schizophrenia and could function in society with menial jobs.
He voluntarily checked himself into a Mental Health facility on October 20th, 1994. During his stay at the "Pioneer North" Mental Health Facility, he called his mother and told her he did not like it there, (although he did not indicate he would leave).

On October 26th, 1994 Pioneer North reported Needham had "walked away" from their facility and they then reported him missing to the Skagit County Sheriff's Office.
The mental health facility is approximately 80 miles from Needham's home and nobody reported seeing Needham leave the facility. He has not been seen since and there has been no contact with his family.
