Kolden got into an argument with his fiancee on the night of June 8, 2002. He left home at 10:00 p.m. and drove to the local Circle K store, where he bought gas and beer. It's not clear where he got the money to pay for them, since his wallet was found in his other car after his disappearance, along with his heirloom wristwatch. Afterwards, he was last seen driving approximately half a mile south of Morenci on Reservation Road, in an area known as the Morenci Corrals. He has never been heard from again. The next day, Kolden's blue 1985 Chevrolet C/K 1500 pickup truck with Arizona license plates was located in the San Francisco River, which is along the same route. There was no sign of him at the scene and authorities do not believe he drowned there.
Kolden's fiancee was pregnant with a girl at the time of his disappearance, and police theorized he walked out of his life to avoid his obligations. However, Kolden's loved ones stated he was looking forward to fatherhood and was also anticipating elk hunting season, and they don't think he would have left of his own accord. He also left his checkbook and $200 in cash behind, and he hasn't touched his bank account since his disappearance. Oddly, the date of his disappearance was also the first anniversary of his fiancee's divorce from her ex-husband. Kolden was reportedly afraid of the man.
Kolden formerly resided in Tucson, Arizona. His disappearance is considered suspicious and his case opened 2018 by Psychic Brian Ladd.
