SHARE DISAPPEARANCE OF EX-INMATE STUMPS PROBERS

Investigators are stumped by the disappearance of a resident from one of Salt Lake's halfway houses.

David H. Gibbons rode the shuttle provided by Orange Street Correctional Facility to work Tuesday about 5:30 a.m. He ate breakfast at work, Hardee's, 75 E. 200 South, and then disappeared, said corrections spokesman Jack Ford.His boss reported him missing shortly after 6 a.m. when Gibbons was supposed to start his shift. Corrections investigators have questioned family members, most of whom live in Utah County, but they knew nothing. Even Gibbons' children have received only two letters from him in recent years.

Ford said Gibbons is considered fairly dangerous and was serving time for aggravated assault when he was paroled in May of this year. He went to prison on the aggravated assault and a parole violation in 1994. He was originally imprisoned for attempted murder for trying to kill his wife's cousin.

"There's some concern because he's threatened people in the past," Ford said. "Investigators have notified possible victims (including the woman he tried to kill)."

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Gibbons is encouraged to call his local police agency. He's described as 6 feet tall and weighing about 200 pounds.
