Branton was last seen leaving the Allentown Racquetball Club at Sixth and
Union Streets around 11 a.m. in Allentown, Pennsylvania on January 7, 1993. Branton's roommate returned to their
apartment at 28 North 16th Street, in Allentown that evening and noticed David's car was parked across the street
instead of its usual place behind the apartment. There was no sign of David, yet none of his clothes or his medication
was missing. When Branton failed to return after a few days, his roommate called police.
Branton has a history of substance abuse and had left the area previously, but had always contacted friends or relatives to let them know he was all right. No one has reported being contacted by Branton since January 7, 1993. Police searched Branton's car and home and found no evidence regarding his disappearance. Branton is an attorney with a law office at 921 Hamilton Street.
There are copies of a number of news articles from Allentown Morning Call pertaining to Mr. Branton at his Find a Grave memorial site.
