Donald Lamont "Don" Merrills was a man who disappeared from California in 1994, just prior to his thirtieth birthday. Merrills called his mother to request she send money to a P.O. box to the town he disappeared from.

Nearly two months later, Merrills had traveled to Oklahoma and hanged himself after climbing over a fence in a parking garage. He was identified after a match submitted by a Websleuths user was made by using fingerprints and DNA.
