Description

In August of 1985, 19-year-old David Lovely and his family were moving from their home in California to Massachusetts. David’s mother and sister were driving the moving truck while David rode his maroon 1978 Model 1100 Yamaha motorcycle. Every 30 miles or so, the family would stop to check on one another. During one stop in Evanston, WY, David told his family he wanted to continue on and that he would meet up with them at the next rest stop. At some point, David stopped in Fort Bridger, WY and called his aunt from the Bingo Truck Stop to tell her that his motorcycle had broken down. He said another man, who also had a motorcycle, had helped him fix whatever the issue was. David asked to his aunt to relay this message to his family when they called her at their next stop. Sadly, this would be the last time David’s family would hear from him. Nine days later, his motorcycle was found by campers on a dirt road near Sweetwater County Airport in Rock Springs, WY, but there was no sign of David.

If you have any information in regards to the whereabouts of David Lovely please call Sweetwater County, Wyoming Sheriff's Department 307-872-6350, Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation 307-777-7181 or Huntington Beach, California Police Department 714-536-5641.

www such an odd circumstance I would think it has something to do with the guy who helped him. he might have seen him as a nice break from road trip but why leave 'valuables & just take the human?? I hope they find him every family deserves to ring their missing
