Missing Paul R. Hibbard
Hibbard, circa 1976
Missing Since 05/28/1976
Classification Endangered Missing
Age 25 years old
Height and Weight 5'10, 160 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Black hair, brown eyes. Hibbard has a scar on his abdomen. He may use the nickname Max.
On the day he disappeared, he was apparently performing a routine geological exploration trip in Gillette. His geological truck, which contained $30,000 in radioactive material, disappeared with him.
Dowdy was arrested and charged with grand larceny. He was questioned in Hibbard's disappearance, but didn't provide any firm leads as to his whereabouts. In January 1977, he pleaded guilty to grand larceny and was sentenced to one to three years in prison.
In August 1976, while Dowdy's larceny case was still pending, Hibbard's truck was found abandoned three miles northwest of Upton, Wyoming. An anonymous man called police with its location.
The truck was parked in a timbered area near a number of water pits. There was a great deal of human blood inside the cab; it was on the door, on the floormats and soaked into the seat. DNA testing wasn't available in 1976. The FBI typed the blood, but Hibbard's blood type is unknown.
Foul play is suspected in Hibbard's case, but it remains unsolved. He was engaged to be married at the time of his disappearance.
