  • Details of Disappearance
    Donald hasn't been heard from since he called his parents at about 4:00 p.m. on January 28, 2006, and arranged to have dinner with them the next day at their home in North Huntingdon Township, PA. Investigators have determined he was inside or near his home in the 1000 block of Logan Road at the time. He told his mother he was planning to go to a friend's house in Delmont, but never showed up there or at another friend's house he planned to visit afterward. Donald was reported missing three days later, on January 31. His silver four door 2004 Mazda 3 was found parked near the intersection of Meyran Avenue and Louisa Street in Pittsburgh's Oakland neighborhood shortly before noon on February 9, 2006.

    Donald attended Norwin High School and then went on to attend the University of Pittsburgh where he graduated last summer with a degree in criminal justice.
