Description

43-year-old Donald Dugger was last seen in Warroad, Minnesota in the early morning hours of August 11th, 2012. Don was a trucker and had just returned to his place of employment to return the semi he was driving. His plan was to then drive his car back home. Don called his sister and explained that there were people outside of his truck and that he was concerned. She heard Donnie ask “what do you want? I am trying to cooperate.” He then told her that he was going to call 911, which he did. Police responded to the scene but the people Don had seen weren’t there. They left after speaking with Don and later returned to see him loading his personal belongings into his car from the semi. That is the last time anyone saw Donald Dugger. His car was later found abandoned on an ATV trail inside Beltrami Island State Forest.

Over six and a half years later, Donald Dugger is still missing and his case remains unsolved.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Donald Dugger, please contact the Roseau County Sheriff's Office at 218-463-1421.

Reminds me of the case shown on 20/20 in the mid 2000s where a couple got lost at night in a blizzard (before cell phones could easily be tracked), called 911 several times over many hours, disoriented, complaining the people they encountered wouldn't help them, and perhaps didn't speak English. They froze to death; they were high on meth and the "people" they'd seen were cattle. I think this guy was either high or in medical crisis, disoriented, and wandered away.

this is a strange case. did anyone else feel like he sounded like he was slurring his speech or mumbling during his 911 call? also, ten people outside his car, but no evidence? lastly if he was in his semi and worried why didn't he just drive away? sounds like a possible medical or mental health issue and he wandered off in the woods. I hope they find him to bring the family some peace.

Jay Dickstein It's very typical of trucking companies to flip a truck that fast! My husband was asked to pick one up for his company but when he got there the guy who had it was still inside DEAD! He literally had to wait for his body to be removed!

Dea Applegate I came here to comment the same exact thing. it sounds to me like he had some kind of mental hallucinations/breakdown after listening to the 911 call. I can promise you if my vehicle was surrounded by 10 people I would not be so calm, collected and honestly disinterested sounding as he was. If I called 911 for the same emergency would have explained very detailed and concisely what was happening and what I saw I wouldn't have given a casual "I heard people outside" It's possible to that he was under the influence of drugs and his family is unaware of his drug use. I know they said that they did a drug test and he passed it but unlike marijuana which stays in your system for 30 days or more some of the harder drugs can only be detected for a couple days after you do them then they're out of your system. It also kind of blows my mind that as employer basically flip the truck to somebody else two days afterwards it didn't try to call him that is interesting but I think it's just an odd coincidence.
