Unconfirmed Trammel Evans sightings in Wonder Valley and Slab City; search continues

The family of missing hiker Trammell Evans is again expanding their search, this time to areas with milder climates as desert temperatures increase to triple digits. 

Trammell’s mother Amy Evans has received unconfirmed tips that the missing 25 year-old has been spotted alive in Slab City and – as of the first week of July – in Wonder Valley. These sightings remain unconfirmed by the family’s private investigator.

Amy Evans says these sightings give her an amount of what she described as “cautious optimism,” about the possibility that her son perhaps left Joshua Tree National Park around the time he went missing on May 5 near Black Rock Campground, though she has not dismissed the possibility that he perished inside the National Park.

Trammel Evans is known to go off-grid for short periods of time, according to his family. Amy Evans has said that based on these tips, that she is trying to think like her son and is considering that he may be moving to cooler areas as heat increases in the hi-desert.

One report that Trammell Evans was in Slab City suggested that he may be driving a blue truck with a camper top.

The Evans family is currently working with the Fowler-O’Sullivan group to continue searching for remains inside the National Park, and has purchased satellite imagery to review.

The Evans family asks that residents and visitors to the hi-desert – and in particular Wonder Valley and Big Bear areas – to keep an eye out for Trammell Evans. The family is also asking if anyone in the hi-desert has sold a blue truck around the first 2 weeks of May, possibly with a camper top.

He is described as as a white male, 6’3”, 190 pounds, with brown eyes, brown/red hair, and facial hair. He may be in a blue truck with a camper top.
