Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Sharclane was last seen in Juneau, Alaska on September 25, 1977. He has never been heard from again. His grandfather filed a missing persons report on November 17, and a grand jury convened to investigate the disappearance on December 8. A suspect, Peter Castillo, was indicted for second-degree murder.
According to the prosecution, shortly after midnight, Sharclane encountered Castillo on the Juneau-Douglas Bridge. The two men got into a fight, and Castillo threw Sharclane off the bridge. It was a 49-foot drop from the railing to the water. It's unclear whether Sharclane could swim, and he had been drinking earlier on the night he went missing.
Castillo later confessed this to the police, but then retracted his confession and tried to have it removed from evidence, arguing it was improperly obtained. The jury was allowed to hear Castillo's confession at the trial. No one had witnessed the altercation or saw Sharclane getting thrown over the bridge rail, but a witness did see Sharclane running onto the bridge and heard sobs or moans coming from the bridge around the time of the incident.
Sharclane's body was never found and no one saw him dead, so Castillo was convicted of attempted murder. Sharclane remains classified as a missing person but is presumed dead.

September 2021 updates and sources

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 25% of missing children in Europe. By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends. Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
