Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Kevin called his parents on May 4, 2008 to say goodbye. He stated he was already headed west with some old friends to start a new life. He told them they wouldn't hear from him for a long time. His parents describe him as sounding extremely distraught and irrational. According to his roommates, Kevin had been antisocial and withdrawn for last 4 weeks before disappearance which was completely out of character for him. He stopped attending classes and left his part-time job at Premier Kites. He gave up baseball, his job, he stopped driving his car, he stopped shaving.
Kevin is very close to his family and he only had 2 more weeks of school at U of Maryland to complete the semester. Hulse transferred to the university in 2006 from Salisbury University to pursue an education in graphic design. He did not take his clothes, wallet, drivers license, money, etc. with him. He did not take his vehicle.
Hulse had numerous interests at school: He explored painting, photography, playing guitar and even poetry in addition to his studies in graphic arts. He enjoyed hikes, rock-climbing and trips to scenic destinations.
Since Hulse is legally an adult, and because he called to say he was leaving, technically he is well within his rights to have disappeared. His parents speculate that he might've fallen in with the wrong crowd, but they maintain that his well-being is their primary concern.
