Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
John Parsons, 77, was reported missing Sept. 4, 2008, after he went for a hike on Waimalu Trail. He was a homebuilder from Bendigo, Australia.
Intense searching by local authorities, family, and volunteers took place for more than 3 weeks. A memorial service was held for him in October 2008.
In the spring of 2009, pig hunters found Parsons' pension card, a pair of dentures and a human leg bone.
Police ran DNA tests on the bone, but the results were inconclusive. Further results could take a year or more.
