  • Details of Disappearance
    Mark was last seen on February 10, 2005. He may be in the company of Bryan Hayes. They may still be in the local area.

    The boys were known to be best friends, and had informed other friends that they planned to run away. Some local citizens reported seeing the boys in a trailer park on the north side of town. By the time authorities reached the site, the boys were gone. It was later learned that Bryan was seen getting into a car outside the school the day he disappeared. Witnesses were not sure if Mark was with him. This report caused authorities to reclassify the missing boys as missing and endangered.

    There were several sightings of the boys in North Jacksonville in the first 2 weeks after they disappeared. Some reports placed them in Volusia County a month later.
