  • Details of Disappearance
    Palmer attended a graduation party with three friends near the Meadow Lake subdivision outside of Wasilla, Alaska on June 4, 1999. He was last seen riding his bicycle down Pittman Road in the direction of his family's residence at approximately 4:00 a.m. His friends had been riding with him but he fell behind them. They waited for him at the 7-Eleven on Parks Highway, but gave up and assumed he went home. He never arrived at his residence.

    His mother reported him missing at 3:00 p.m. that day, eleven hours after he was last seen. His bicycle was located sometime later in the Little Susitna River, which runs roughly parallel to the Pittman Road and Silver Drive intersection. Palmer's shoes were discovered by another teenager who had attended the party. They were wet and muddy when they were found near a private runway for a homeowner's personal aircraft. No other evidence concerning his whereabouts was discovered.
