  • Details of Disappearance
    Pernell was a student at a local cosmetology school and lived with his sister Brook Milligan at her house in Bloomfield
    about 10 miles southeast of Farmington. On the night of his disappearance in May 1998, he spent the evening with Brook
    and friends at Gator's Bar & Grill, a popular Farmington club, before leaving in separate cars. He drove Brook's 1988
    Subaru station wagon while Brook rode with friends. She thought he was following her home but he never arrived.

    On June 18, almost three weeks later, an oil field worker checking on a well about five miles northwest of Farmington
    found the badly burned Subaru in a dry river wash in Choke Cherry Canyon. He reported it to the San Juan County Sheriff's
    Department. He is of Navajo-Hopi descent.
