Kevin Jay Bowman has been missing for nearly 12 years. In October of 2010, he packed up some belongings, bought a car, and drove south, never to be heard from again.

A cold case is defined as an "unsolved criminal investigation which remains open pending the discovery of new evidence." One of Twin Falls' oldest cold cases may not involve any criminal activity whatsoever, but the story of Kevin Bowman is still shrouded in mystery.

According to the Facebook page Idaho Cold Cases, Bowman left Twin Falls on October 10, 2010. Just a few days prior, he had spoken to his boss about a paycheck matter, and less than a week later his roommates noticed he had packed some belongings. He was 33-years-old when he disappeared. Bowman was officially reported missing by  family members in January of 2011.

An automobile he purchased shortly before leaving Twin Falls was discovered months later, and more than 60 miles away, just outside the city of Wells, Nevada. The last suspected communication by Bowman was a cell phone call four days after he was last seen in town, on October 14, according to the Facebook page.

Several alarms were sounded in this case due to the fact that Bowman's luggage and keys were found inside the abandoned vehicle, which had crashed into a tree and was found by hunters.
