On Saturday, March 6, 2021, human remains were located near the 5800 block of Littleton-Kilgore Road in Dora. Multiple volunteer search organizations, including Equusearch, partnered with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office at the Dora location to conduct a search for missing Douglas Nolan Ryan Watson. Watson has been missing since March 8, 2020. Jefferson County Detectives conducted an extensive investigation into Watson’s disappearance, but have been unable to locate him.
The located remains are currently unidentified, pending examination by the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank everyone who participated in the search. While, the discovery of these remains is heartbreaking, we are hopeful that someone’s family will gain some peace from finally having answers.
