Circumstances of Disappearance

On March 2, 1983 David Warner planned to go to a function at a small independent church a few doors up the street from his Beeler Avenue home. David walked up to the church but didn't go in, then, he went on up the street.

He went to Druther's Restaurant in Jefferson City, and got a hamburger. Later, he watched TV at a friend's house until 7:00, then told the friend he was going to his house, about 30 yards away. The next morning his family discovered he was not at home, although his bed covers were bundled up in a way that could be viewed as a ploy to make it appear he was in bed.

At first, police thought David had gone off with some friends, or maybe run away. Authorities launched a massive search, but no trace of David was ever found. Foul play is suspected.
