Details: On April 26, 1989, seven-year-old David Borer vanished while walking along Parks Highway near Mile Marker 82, eleven miles north of his home in Willow, Alaska. He was either going to a friend's house or a sandbar near the frozen Kashwitna River. After he disappeared, police looked into the possibility that he may have fallen into the river. However, no hole in the ice was found. Also, divers searched the water and failed to find any trace of him.
Police also looked into the possibility that David was abducted while walking along the highway. He had apparently hitchhiked periodically throughout the area prior to his disappearance, and some believe that he may have met with foul play. This case remains unsolved.

Extra Notes: This case first aired on the January 24, 1990 episode, along with four other missing child cases: Tara Calico, Leticia Hernandez, Jessica Gutierrez, and Malakia Logan.
Results: Unsolved. David's mother had another son, Paul, in March 1990. Tragically, in April, he was killed by a hybrid wolf.
