I found this excellent, in-depth article about Patrick Beavers, who’s been missing from Jerome, Idaho since 1997. He walked out of the house in the middle of the night during a snowstorm and vanished. The note he left behind indicates he either committed suicide or left of his own accord, but who knows which? It certainly looks like a suicide, but in that case where’s the body?
From what the article says about Patrick’s personality and habits, he reminds me a lot of myself. The reading, the asocial habits, etc. In fact I wonder if he had Asperger’s too, though of course that’s just speculation.
I doubt he’s still alive, but I really hope his mom finds out someday what happened to him.
