Circumstances

William Verne Downey left a note for his mother at their family’s Seattle, Washington residence. This incident occurred on May 8, 1987. The letter stated that he was spending the night at a friend’s home. William failed to return to his house the following day. However, the friend said that he never saw him the evening before.

Another witness stated that William was seen entering a large white car. It was possibly a 1974 or 1975 Chevrolet Impala. This incident occurred reportedly in Seattle later in the day on May 8. He may have remained in the general area after his disappearance. He has never been heard from again.

William may have departed from his residence of his own accord, reportedly. But the circumstances surrounding his disappearance are unclear. He was a student at Sylvester Middle School at the time that he went missing, and his friends tended to be people much older than himself. His case remains unsolved.

Appeal

William Verne Downey has been missing for almost 33 years. Sadly, I could not find even one press release or article about him. Information about him is shockingly limited. He is on the bad side of unequal persons searches. I could not find anything by, for, or about his family. Is anyone actively searching for Billy? He was seen getting into a vehicle. Who was the driver of this vehicle? Were there any passengers in that vehicle? How did Billy meet this unidentified individuals (s)? What was his relationship to them? Has foul play ever been considered?

Did someone approach Billy, groom him, and lure him to vanish in order to be in their company? Do you have any information concerning the whereabouts of William Verne Downey and/or the missing vehicle? Do you have any information concerning the person (s) who may be involved in his disappearance?
