Missing David Bird Thomson
Thomson, circa 1979
Missing Since 07/01/1979
Classification Endangered Missing
Date of Birth Used 02/09/1947 (74)
Age 32 years old
Height and Weight 5'8 - 5'10, 175 - 185 pounds
Clothing/Jewelry Description A flannel work shirt, blue jeans and a ying-yang necklace.
Medical Conditions Thomson suffers from scoliosis, and his brother stated he was suffering from depression and mild delusions at the time of his 1979 disappearance. He is classified as disabled.
Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Brown hair, blue eyes. Thomson has a receding hairline, he may have a beard, and his hair was shoulder-length at the time of his disappearance. His eyes may appear green. He has fractured his right arm and has a scar on his right elbow. He sustained injuries in a car accident in 1964; as a result, Thomson's left leg is three-eighths of an inch shorter than his right leg, and his left arm was foreshortened when his left shoulder shattered. His nickname is Chris and he may go by his middle name, Bird.
Thomson worked as a writer and journalist and lived in various European countries prior to his disappearance. He wrote a book called In the Shining Mountains: A Would-be Mountain Man in Search of Wilderness; it was published the same year he went missing. The book is about a man who seeks to live like an old-fashioned mountain man, but finds his dream intruded upon by modern society. Thomson's loved ones believe he may have simply wanted to drop out of society and live off the land like the character in his book.
Texas authorities are assisting with Thomson's investigation.
