On June 2, 2011, Angela Gilbert was walking on timber land used for logging in Granite Falls, Washington with an acquaintance named Colt White .  At some point, Colt returned without Angela. When asked about this, he allegedly said that she had continued to walk along the land near the Stillaguamish River. Unfortunately, no one ever got a chance to ask Colt more about what happened on that warm spring day walk because he disappeared shortly after Angela. Several weeks later, Colt’s body was found in the Stillaguamish River. During searches, some of Angela's belongings were found in the area but police told her family they believe the items were planted. It has been eight long years since Angela disappeared and her family believes there are more people out there who know what happened.

His comments! He sounded so guilty! It’s so good to come to this later and find that the daughters have some answers.

find out who he was having sex with or trying to have sex with and you get your answers, only other thing could be his half brother/ roommate was having party friends over frequently and knows who could've harmed him

It could go either way. He might be dead or homeless. This is one of the few cases I've heard that seems up in the air...

Sounds like his half brother had something to do with it. Weird family dynamics here, the father is clueless.

Vanishing voluntarily sounds out of character for this guy. It doesn’t sound good and I believe something happened at the club or immediately after he left the club.

It sounds like he had a mental health crisis. When my teenage son first displayed signs of bipolar, in less than 24 hours he changed from his regular self into someone extremely paranoid and terrified that people were after him. He was having major delusions and hallucinations. At one point he didn’t even recognize me or my husband. He has bipolar with psychotic features, which means if he was not medicated he would see and hear things that aren’t there. It sounds like Don had some sort of similar mental break and fled away, maybe taking an alternate route from normal because he was trying to “elude” someone.

this case made me want to comment on a few areas. first I understand how people in the media and who haven't lost a child might say oh my gosh if my child was missing I would do everything in my power, but if you talk to the cops and told them everything over and over again and you want them to stop questioning you and actually look at other leads and yes that would get very distressing. it is so obvious in the media interview that the mother was in actual distress and overcome with anguish. I've seen interviews of her with tears streaming down her face clearly not the fake Susan Smith, Casey Anthony fake actions. also the phone's being missing and to this day never having been recovered that would be hard to do I wouldn't know where to put something like that and it never be found. so I feel very bad for this family for them to not know where their child is
