Troy Galloway is a beloved son, father and husband. He is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who served from 2000 to 2003. His family is desperately seeking answers as to what happened to him on a cold night in January 2016.
The day he disappeared
On the evening of January 13, 2016 Troy left his home in the Crystal Falls Ranch subdivision and never returned. According to his mother, Troy and his wife had a fight that evening and Troy left, on foot, in a short sleeve t-shirt into the cold January night.
Curiously, only 30 minutes after he left the house, his cell phone was turned off. He was never seen again.
Where the case stands today
The Sheriff's office has received some tips, one of which led them to search a lake in his subdivision in September 2016 and in the early summer of 2021. Both searches, one of which included actually draining the lake, yielded no evidence of Troy.
If you have any information about what happened to Troy, please contact the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office at (209) 533-5855.
