Miguel Sonny Scott has been missing since October 27th, 2011. The 19-year-old was last seen at Evergreen-Rotary Park, located in Bremerton, Washington. Miguel and his friends gathered at the park that evening to drink. He never returned home after said gathering and has never been seen or heard from again.
Miguel’s family members did not immediately worry when he did not return home, as it was not unusual for him to be out of touch for days at a time. Miguel’s mother was confident that he would resurface for a doctor’s appointment that he had scheduled for that following Monday. A few weeks before his disappearance, Miguel broke his jaw and had to have his mouth wired shut. This appointment was for follow-up care for the jaw injury. Unfortunately, Miguel never showed up. After that, Miguel’s loved ones realized that he had not been active on Facebook since October 26th, which was quite uncharacteristic of him. At that point, Miguel’s family members began to fear something bad had happened to him.
Over the years, there has been very little news on Miguel’s case. However, a few theories have been discussed online. Miguel’s mother mentioned that there were rumors that Miguel owed money to someone, but this rumor has never been confirmed. There is also speculation that alcohol and drugs played a role in Miguel’s disappearance. Miguel had been prescribed opiates after breaking his jaw, and he mixed the opiates with alcohol on the night he was last seen. It’s been theorized that he became disoriented and then fell into a nearby inlet. It’s also been theorized that Miguel overdosed and his friends panicked and disposed of him. None of these theories have been confirmed and it is unclear if Miguel’s friends have been investigated.
