Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Joshua was last seen on July 7, 2007. He is presumed drowned after a boating accident. Joshua and a friend decided to drift their boat on Pressentine Creek, which feeds into the Skagit River. They tied their eight-foot boat to a log, and when they were getting out of the boat it overturned. His friend tried to get him out and couldn’t, and the boat went under, dragging the boy under too. A boater passing by the accident helped the other boy out of the water and to shore.
The Sheriff’s office searched the area with water, air and ground personnel until after dark but was unable to find the teen.
