Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Vessels was last seen in Manzano, New Mexico on March 17, 1993. He was seen driving through town with a passenger, identified as a local man. He had left for a fishing trip at Manzano Lake on March 16 and failed to return.
Police found Vessels's unlocked vehicle parked among some trees off a forest road a day after he was reported missing, three days after he was last seen. His car keys, wallet and sleeping bag were inside it. County officials towed the car, because they didn't realize it belonged to a missing person. An extensive search turned up no indication of his whereabouts. He has never been heard from again.
At the time of his disappearance, Vessels was the lead guitarist for a band called Blues Kings; he also played in several other local bands. He lived south of Tijeras, New Mexico with his girlfriend of eight years.
Several days before he left for the fishing trip, he and his girlfriend argued and he left the house. His friends saw him later and he told them he was going fishing, but didn't notify his girlfriend.
It's uncharacteristic of Vessels to leave without warning. Foul play is suspected in his case, which remains unsolved. Authorities in Bernalillo County, his county of residence, are investigating.
