Missing Randall Dean Leach
Leach, circa 1980
Missing Since 11/06/1980
Idaho Falls, Idaho
Date of Birth Used 07/28/1960 (60)
Age 20 years old
Height and Weight 5'8, 140 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Brown hair, blue eyes. Leach's left ear is pierced. He has previously broken his left clavicle.
Details of Disappearance Leach left his family's Sheboygan, Wisconsin home in November 1980 to hitchhike to his sister's home in Bend, Oregon.
He was last seen at a dairy farm in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He had stopped at the farm and worked there for a couple of days before leaving. He left a backpack and some clothes behind at the farm.
Leach has never been heard from again. The last time his family heard from him was on November 6, when he called his mother to wish her a happy birthday. Leach's relatives became concerned when he didn't arrive or contact them for Thanksgiving on November 27. They reported him missing on February 2, 1981.
Leach had never gone on a long hitchhiking journey before his disappearance, but his family knew him as a nomadic, idealistic person. He was an honors student in high school and a talented pianist, and he won a $10,000 scholarship to study at Friends World College, a school in New York that specialized in global immersion education.
He studied in Kenya in 1979, and when he returned to the United States he tried to get a job with the United Nations. His sister thought he seemed disillusioned following his return from Kenya.
All the people at the farm have been ruled out as suspects in Leach's disappearance. The circumstances of his case are unclear. Wisconsin and Oregon police are investigating.
