Donald Edward Hunter
Missing since August 11, 1999 from Mojave, Kern County, California
Circumstances of Disappearance
Donald was last seen August 11, 1999 when he set out on foot from Mojave to Boron, some 30 miles away. Donald Hunter was last seen about 16.00 August 11 after he was released from the Mojave sheriff's substation jail following a drunk driving arrest for which his car was impounded. He told a sheriff's employee he couldn't get a bus home and intended to walk.
Hunter is easily confused due to an head injury suffered when he was in his 20s.
When Hunter's brother reported him missing August 21, a Sheriff's Department helicopter was sent to scan the desert on both sides of Highway 58 between Mojave and Boron. Search and rescue unit personnel on horseback and in four-wheel-drive vehicles searched the area. Neither search turned up any sign of him.
