Missing since July 24, 1996 from Bisbee, Cochise County, Arizona
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Kalaf, owner of Venture Drilling Company, 6700 North Oracle Road, left his office in Bisbee at 10:30 and headed for a job site about 20 miles outside Tombstone, between Tombstone and Gleason, Arizona on July 24, 1996. He had a reservation at a motel in Tombstone for the night but apparently failed to check in.

His silver 1989 Dodge Ram pickup was found, three months later, stuck in a small ravine in a rugged mountainous area east of Tombstone near Gleeson Road 17, miles from the drilling site. There was a jack out and it appeared the truck may have gotten stuck.
