  • Details of Disappearance
    Hagel was last seen at a bowling tournament in Fargo on February 26, 1989.

    He called a friend on March 6 from Kingman, Arizona, saying he had been in nine states in nine days, was nearly out of money and was going to return to Bismarck. Hagel sounded depressed when talking to his friend and had some recent setbacks.

    His vehicle was found on March 10, 1989, near Death Valley Monument, in a desolate area off the road. Hagel's wallet and keys were on the front seat of the vehicle. Park rangers tracked one set of footprints about six miles into the desert. He was never found. Someone once reported seeing Hagel in California, but that account could not be confirmed.
