  • Details of Disappearance
    On May 29, 2004 at approximately 1800 hours Chad Kirkendall left his Caspar, California residence located in the 42000 block of Caspar Little Lake Road. Kirkendall left the residence in his roommate's vehicle with his destination being a mailbox located a short distance away from the residence.

    Kirkendall failed to return to the residence after a hour and the roommate initiated a search, which resulted in the vehicle being found in a ditch on Road 408 near the Woodlands Camp. Investigators recovered Kirkendall's shoes with the vehicle that appeared to have been crashed into the ditch.
