Details of Disappearance Bunker was last seen leaving Dana Point Harbor in his 30-foot sailboat, the Bug Trap, at 9:45 a.m. on October 3, 2007. He said he was going to sail to the San Diego, California area, possibly to Shelter Island, 60 miles away. He has never been heard from again.
On January 6, 2008, three months after Bunker's disappearance, his boat was found floating in 9,000 feet of water, 19 miles off the coast of the island of Kauai, Hawaii. There was no one on board, the mast was broken and there was fire damage to the inside cabin, which was in disarray, but there was no indication that anyone had been injured.
Fire officials believe the fire on the boat started accidentally. Authorities do not believe foul play was involved in Bunker's disappearance. He had purchased the boat in August 2007; by October, he had not yet finished paying for it and it was still registered under the name of his previous owner.
Authorities believe Bunker had an accident at sea. He was not an experienced sailor. His remains have not been recovered.
