Adam Castillo

Updated: Oct 4, 2021

21 year old Adam Castillo from Wilcox, Arizona. On the night of Saturday, September 13th, 2008 Adam went to a party in the desert with about 30 other people and was never seen again. Rumors began to swirl in the small town and the sheriff’s office actually shut down the local high school for an entire day just to conduct interviews and see if they could figure out what happened in the desert that night. But, 13 years later the case has gone cold and we still don’t know how Adam Castillo disappeared.
