  • Details of Disappearance
    Jay was last seen on April 19, 1977, in Gardena, California; however, prior to the missing date he resided in Medford, Oregon. He left with an aquaintance on a trip to CA. Pringle’s friend eventually returned without him and he told authorities that they had gotten into an argument in Gardena, Califoarina, and Pringle left the area with an unknown male. He said Pringle had left his money and he had spent it traveling to Nevada and then returning to Medford.

    Investigators believed Pringle’s friend had something to do with his disappearance but they never had enough evidence to charge him and he left the state during the investigation. The friend was the only person who reported seeing Pringle in Gardena and the exact location he disappeared is unknown.

    Jay was last seen carrying a brown/green wool blanket and a suitcase.
