  • Details of Disappearance
    James lived with his mother in the 4000 block of Cromwell Avenue in the Los Feliz district of Los Angeles, California in 1998. He was last seen on June 18 of that year at Universal Studios where he had been employed for 15 years.

    James' 1997 Nissan was discovered abandoned on July 1, 1998 in Burbank, California, two weeks after his disappearance. He left his wallet at home with credit cards, his driver's license, a passport and cash. Family members could not find his automatic-teller card and believed he might have been carrying it when he disappeared.

    James did not seem depressed or exhibit any unusual behavior in the days before his disappearance. Dental x-rays are available.
