Have You Seen David Douglas Potts II?

by David Lohr March 14, 2010

David Douglas Potts II was 21 years old when he went missing from Florissant, Mo., in 2006. His disappearance has affected everyone around him, including his mother, Robin Potts.

"A parent should never feel the fear and pain of not knowing where her child is," Robin told Investigation Discovery. "There is a hole in my life and my heart, a void if you will, a steady, agonizing, debilitating pain that simply refuses to go away."

Robin last saw her son at about 9:17 p.m., on Oct. 28, 2006, before he and some friends went out for a night on the town. Several hours later, at about 1:30 a.m., a St. Ann police officer and a ride-along passenger spotted a gray Ford Contour weaving on Highway 70. Friends later told police that Potts was driving the vehicle because the owner was too intoxicated to drive. When the officer attempted to stop the vehicle, a high-speed pursuit ensued.

"The officer in pursuit stated that he was nearing 130 mph, and the Grey Ford Contour was pulling away from him," Robin said. "Upon crossing the Earth City Expressway interchange, a Missouri State Highway Patrolman joined the pursuit."

Not long thereafter, the vehicle crashed on the Blanchette Bridge. Potts then allegedly exited the vehicle and took off on foot. An officer chased him along the bridge, and Potts reportedly jumped over the railing. It remains unclear whether he fled along a catwalk or fell into the water below.

On Oct. 30, Potts' employer notified his parents that he did not show up for work. They were unaware of the accident and did not find out about it until they started calling their son's friends and, ultimately, the police department.

"In my first call to St. Ann Police, spoke with a dispatch officer and was told that David was considered wanted (because he had eluded police) and not a missing person," Robin said.

On Nov. 1, Robin again spoke with police and was told to file a missing person report. Robin then met with a St. Louis County police officer, and the case was officially logged, but authorities allegedly refused to organize a search.

"On Nov. 5, with the help of the Sean Hornbeck Foundation, we organized a search on both water and land," Robin said. "The Missouri Water Patrol searched the Missouri River and even dragged the river from the Blanchette Bridge to the Blanchette Landing, [but] nothing was found. There was no clothing, footprints or anything else that was found or discovered."

There has been no sign of David since the night of the police chase. None of his bank accounts have been touched, and no one has had any contact with him.

Some believe David is still alive and has started a new life. Prior to his disappearance, he allegedly told family members that he wanted to change his life and would do "whatever it takes." Others believe he fell into the waters below the bridge and was swept away by the current. Robin says she is desperate to find out what happened.

"I need closure to move on with my life," Robin said. "My son has missed so much - the birth of his beautiful niece, the death of his grandfather, and the death of a cousin. I miss him more than anyone can understand. I need him to come home one way or the other. I need closure for the pain to subside and for my life to move forward."

David Douglas Potts II is described as a white male, 6' 3" tall, 160-170 pounds, with brown hair and blue/hazel eyes. He has multiple tattoos, including, a Confederate flag on the back of his neck with the words "Rise Again," Chinese symbols on his right forearm that mean "Drink" in English, and a skull and cross bones with green eyes on the small of his back.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the St. Louis County Police Department at 314-889-2341.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Family of Missing Missouri Man Asks for New Clues on the
5th Anniversary Date of His Disappearance


Florissant, MO (October 29, 2011) - It has been 5 years since David Potts disappeared without a trace, and the family and authorities today are reminding people to keep an eye out for him.

David was last seen at approximately 2:30am in the vicinity of Hwy 70 westbound near Blanchette Bridge in St. Charles, MO. David and friends fled from police after wrecking the vehicle. David jumped over the bridge onto the catwalk below. A later search of the river and both banks turned up no results. He has not picked up remaining checks and his account has not been touched.

Robin Potts, David's mother and family spokesperson, said the family is trying to get any and all information about David out to the public and are pleading for help. He said the family is trying to deal with this situation the best that they can. Robin said "It is important to let the public know that David is still missing. We need help to find him. We love and miss him terribly. Sadly, someone knows more than they are willing to say. We pray and stay optimistic that someday God will return him to us and we will finally have the answers we deserve."

David is described as a Caucasian male with blue eyes.  At the time of his disappearance, he had brown hair, was 6' 3" and weighed 180 pounds. David has a scar from a dog bite on his nose, and has several tattoos including a Confederate flag on the back of his neck, Chinese symbols on his left forearm, and a skull and crossbones on the small of his back. He wore a silver watch and a silver band on his pinky finger.

One in six missing persons is found as a result of a visual such as a newspaper photo, TV news segment, or missing person poster. But it is harder to get media coverage for adults.  

Photos of David are available for download at http://projectjason....hp?topic=6184.0
Please include this link to a printable poster in your coverage:  http://www.projectja..._DavidPotts.pdf

Anyone with information about David is urged to contact the St. Louis County Police Department at 314-889-2341.
