KPMG Managing Director Alan White Reported Missing By Family; Reward Increased to $20,000; Dallas Police Considers White ‘Endangered’ (UPDATE)

[Updated on Dec. 2 with LinkedIn post from KPMG Dallas office managing partner.]

No new updates on the whereabouts of KPMG Dallas Managing Director James Alan White, who has been missing since Oct. 22.

One thing I haven’t seen in any of the reporting in Dallas and around the country about White’s disappearance is a comment from KPMG. Everyone outside of the Dallas office has to be aware of what happened, right?

Sure enough, a source from KPMG pointed us to a LinkedIn post about White’s disappearance from Dallas OMP Kim Kesler. We were told the post has been widely shared by firm leaders across the U.S.

Kesler wrote:

KPMG is deeply concerned about our friend and colleague, Alan White, who went missing on October 22nd in Dallas. We are working with local authorities and in touch with Alan’s family to provide all the support that we can. We hope Alan will be found safe and well soon and our thoughts are with his family and loved ones. If you have any information that may help lead to his whereabouts, please call the Dallas Police Department at 214-671-4268 or the tip hotline at 800-403-8024.

It’s now been over a month since KPMG Managing Director James Alan White disappeared in Dallas after an early morning workout at an LA Fitness. Surveillance footage from a nearby RaceTrac gas station showed White putting gas in the Porsche Macan SUV he was driving after he left LA Fitness on Oct. 22. He then drove away, supposedly to head back home for a 7 a.m. work call. But he never made it home.

Dallas police found the black Porsche loaner car White was driving about a week later, but White is still nowhere to be found. According to an NBC News article that was published yesterday about White’s disappearance, the loaner car was found 10 to 15 miles away, in the opposite direction of White’s house.

A couple of new things have happened since the end of last week:

  • Dallas police have upgraded the case from a “want to locate” to an “endangered missing person,” but have not provided additional details because of the active investigation.
  • White’s family has increased the reward for information regarding White’s whereabouts from $15,000 to $20,000. A new “endangered missing person” flyer (see below) was also released with information about White.

Anyone with information about White’s disappearance should call (800) 403-8024 or Dallas police at (214) 671-4268.

Nothing new to report today on the whereabouts of missing Dallas KPMG Managing Director James Alan White; however, his family released footage on Nov. 5 of White putting gas in the black Porsche Macan loaner car he was driving on the morning of his disappearance. White is seen at the gas station at 5:47 a.m. on Oct. 22, after he left an LA Fitness reportedly at 5:38 a.m. In the gas station surveillance camera footage, White is wearing a red tank top, even though the “missing person” flyer (below) says he was last seen wearing a light gray tank top with dark gym shorts.

Alan White, who works for KPMG in Dallas, hasn’t been seen by family and friends since Oct. 22, according to WFAA in Dallas. His family has hired a private investigator and is working with police to look into his disappearance.

WFAA reported:

A video camera captured Alan White leaving an LA Fitness on Haskell in Dallas at 5:38 a.m. He had gone there to work out.

Friends say that is the last time anyone saw or heard from him.

“And he was expected on a work call at 7 or 7:30 Thursday morning, so when he did not show up for that everybody instantly assumed that something had gone wrong,” friend Matt Davies said.

According to his LinkedIn profile, White was a managing director in the CIO Advisory practice of KPMG in Dallas, with a focus on cloud transformation services. He has worked at KPMG since February 2020.

White, 55, who is married, previously worked at Grant Thornton, IBM, and PwC.

According to WFAA, the family is working to obtain a court order to attempt to locate his cellphone.

A $10,000 reward has been offered for anyone who might have information about where White might be.

[UPDATE] Dallas police said on Oct. 29 that they located and have in their possession the black Porsche Macan loaner car White was driving while his car was being serviced, WFAA reported yesterday. However, White is still missing.

Anyone with information about White’s whereabouts should call (800) 403-8024 or Dallas police at (214) 671-4268.

  1. Police do not need a court order to ping a cell phone when it is believed a person is in danger or is missing under suspicious circumstances.

    What was the condition of the car? Any evidence of foul play inside?
    Is it possible he parked it there and left with someone new in his life?

    Why is DPD completely disinterested in this? Perhaps because they recognize Alan simply wanted a break from his current life situation?

    1. Yes – I have tried searching online for more info but all I can find is that 1) the car was found, and somebody on Facebook on Twitter said they thought it was found in another neighborhood, or South Dallas. Is there any more info on this? I feel like these are important details. Exactly where was the car found? At an apartment complex? On a residential street, etc.? I pray that he is safe and that God would bring him home.

      1. I agree more information is needed for the location of where the car was found. This may help with the investigation. This is a resedential area, however it is not a populated area. The area is a mixture of older homes and apartments and high crime. Not sure why he would be in that area. Possible he may have been car jacked after leaving the gas station where no cameras were in view. The red light camers should be checked for who ever may have been driving the loaner car. Praying for his family

  2. I work at smaller firm and we offer $20,000 to find a managing director. Big 4 can only offer $15,000?

  3. Has there been a search of the area around where the car was found or near by creeks, wooded areas or bridges, if there is a request of having a search and volunteers are needed please put that out there I would be glad to help

  4. It is my opinion that the abductor took the metro to the station near where Alan lived, walked to his neighborhood, and abducted Alan as he got home from the gas station.

    My guess is Alan was tossed over the trinity river bridge or some other as they drove south on inwood to south dallas where Alan’s vehicle was found.

    I believe a search by drone of bridges and other areas along the way where disposal could be done quickly will find him.

    Possibly get the $20k reward with 3 days focus on a search in that direction is worth the effort.
