  • Details of Disappearance
    The day before James disappeared, he attended an empowerment seminar in Denver, Colorado. After attending the seminar he started to display sudden psychological problems. He asked a friend to drive him to a local trailhead in hopes of getting his thoughts straight. The friend drove him there and came back to town and within a half hour James showed up again, barefoot and confused. After that James returned to the woods and was not seen again.

    His Jeep was found August 3, 2004 about 20 miles north of Crestone on a road off Colo. 17.
    There was a possible sighting of James near Poncha Springs, CO in early August 2004, but that claim has not been substantiated.
