Circumstances of Disappearance
Hagel was last seen at a bowling tournament in Fargo, North Dakota on February 26, 1989. After the tournament, he did not return to his home town of Bismarck.

Hagel called a friend in early March while he was in Kingman, Arizona. He told his friend that he had visited several states in the days he had been gone, had little money left, and would soon return to Bismarck. His friend also reported that Hagel sounded depressed.

On March 10th 1989, Hagel's blue Ford Tempo was located off the road in a desolate area near the Death Valley Monument. Hagel's wallet and keys were in the vehicle, his tracks were spotted leading to the desert landmark's rugged foothills. What was thought to be his footprints were tracked for several miles, but he was never located.

There has been no new financial or Social Security records for Hagel. Also, his fingerprints have found no match with arrests since that time.
