In 1989 Ralph Newcombe moved from Kodiak Alaska to Seattle.
A few months later Ralph drove away from his house in North Seattle and did not return home. His wife reported him missing. Contacts, glasses, uncashed check left at home.

His pick up truck was found the next morning in Seattle, parked across the street from the Alaska ferry terminal.
His carpenter tools, wallet and identification were found in the pickup. The crew of the Alaska ferry did not see Ralph on the boat when it sailed to Alaska.

Ralph worked as a carpenter building and remodeling houses in Alaska and was trying to form a business in Seattle but he left before the business was formed.
