This is my sisters nephew and he is still missing... She is trying to get his story told on Wtap and in the Parkersburg News and Sentinel... Since he does know several people in several areas... For some reason tho every times she post on facebook for them to mention this story they delete her commment and everything about it... I guess he has friends in Ritchie Co... And maybe the NMPD should contact them just for a piece of information maybe... I know this is very hard on my brother in law and his family right now... They have a large family that keeps trying to put together search crews... which end up being only a small party but they have come up with nothing... I hope he is found alive and safe... If not i hope who ever is responsible gets what they got coming to them... His has 4 small children that would never be the same... Prayers to The Francis'

Has the area behind the tractor supply been searched since the dogs found his scent there?

I'll try posting on those facebook sites also. It seems that he must have been going somewhere and planning on coming back for the car since the items left behind were hid under the seat. Most people do that when they don't want to carry valuables. That way they can't be seen through the window.

Possibly he planned to meet with someone else before he went to help with his friends car.
