Circumstances of Disappearance
Douglass was traveling the Midwest in 1985 as part of the Whitey Gleason Trio, a gospel group whose members would sing at revival meetings and give testimonials to their faith.
He was staying with Gleason and his wife at a Springfield motel when he and all of his belongings vanished while the couple was at a store.
He left behind a note stating:
"Thanks for taking care of me, I'll keep in touch."
He has not been heard from again.
There is no evidence of foul play. Douglass was on Social Security benefits and those benefits have not been touched since his disappearance.
