Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Joe Pichler, a former child actor, was last seen by a friend on January 5, 2006 in Bremerton, WA. He had spent the evening playing cards with some close friends. Everyone that saw him that evening described Joe as in a very good mood. They say he was not showing any signs of distress or depression. Several people tried to reach Joe later on and were unable to do so.
On January 9, 2006 Joe's vehicle was found abandoned near the Wheaton Way and Sheridan Road intersection in Bremerton, WA behind a restaurant. His wallet and car keys are missing. Police found what they felt was a suicide note inside the vehicle. Family members, however, described the note as only a poem that was buried in Joe's belongings, and do not feel Joe committed suicide or that he left a suicide note behind. Police believe Joe possibly jumped from a nearby bridge.
