26-year-old Johnathan Lee Hamilton left his home in Houston, Texas on May 2, 2015. Two days later, he showed up a couple hours away in the town of Bastrop, Texas. He abandoned his vehicle in a Best Buy parking lot, it had run out of gas. Several people in the town of Bastrop, including police, interacted with Johnathan that day and then he simply vanished without a trace. In this first part of Johnathan’s story, we’re going to dig into the days leading up to his disappearance up until the last time that he was reportedly seen on May 4th.
