Robert Garman, of Hot Springs, Arkansas, was last seen September 24, 1996, after partying for several days in the Mark Twain National Forest, off H Highway, near Chadwick, MO.
Garman and a female acquaintance from Arkansas were in the Ozarks visiting friends and joined a binge party of about 15 people that lasted several days. Garman and the woman left the party alone. Two days later, he was missing and horseback riders in the forest found the woman naked, disoriented and badly bruised. The woman told authorities she had been sexually assaulted and that Garman was shot in the face.
Witnesses reported seeing Garman argue with a male and female acquaintance. Shortly after the argument, Garman reportedly walked into a wooded campground area, and has not been seen since.
