  • Details of Disappearance
    On March 22, 2010, Donahue left his parents' house about 3:45 p.m. and hasn't been heard from again. Within 10 minutes both of his cell phones went dead. Shane Donahue lived in a duplex not far from his parents' house -- both along Aden Road.

    On the day he vanished, Donahue had just been paid $5,000 for installing ceiling tiles at Colgan Air. He'd paid friend Timothy Sean Hickerson $1,000 of that for helping out with the job. Donahue was with Timothy Hickerson when he dropped by his mom's the day he disappeared. He rode off in the passenger seat of the blue box truck, with Hickerson driving. Timothy Hickerson is the last person known to have seen Shane Donahue. He told the Donahues he had dropped their son at Shane's apartment that afternoon. Hickerson is now serving four years in federal prison for breaking into two area gun stores and stealing firearms from one in the months after Donahue's disappearance.

    Donahue did not have a vehicle and frequently obtained rides from friends. He frequented Washington,D.C., Baltimore, MD, Fauquier County, VA and Northern Virginia. Donahue did odd jobs for a living. There has been no activity on his phones or any bank accounts. Foul play is suspected.
