Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Edward Nye was on a camping trip with his church group on June 22, 1978. The group was camping in the Sky Lakes area near the Rogue River in Prospect, Oregon. Nye told his brother, who was part of the group; he planned to go fishing by himself. Nye headed downstream and was never seen again.
Search and Rescue scoured the area in the days to come but no evidence was ever recovered. Investigators do not suspect foul play in this case and they believe Nye either became lost and succumbed to the elements or drowned in the Rogue River.
