Someone knows what happened to Christopher L. Haas. Someone saw something or heard something that will help authorities solve this case.
It has been more than a week since the Lawrence County man has been seen at a Greasy Ridge gas station and then reported missing a few days later. His car was also found abandoned on a rural roadway.

I am sorry to say that Mr. Haas has not been found. Exhaustive searches were done at the time of his disappearance and several follow ups since then but unfortunately he has not been located. We do follow up on any and all leads.
I am sure the family would appreciate you remembering them in prayer if you are so inclined.

This is an old article, from July 2010, but it states the location where Christopher L. Haas was last seen and gives a full description of his vehicle that LE found abandoned.
Haas was last seen at the R&R Grocery on Greasy Ridge at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, July 15. A friend, Harold White, reported Haas missing Sunday.
The car, a 1992 tan Honda four-door, was searched by investigators from the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation.
"We are conducting a search and following up some leads," Sheriff Jeff Lawless said yesterday morning.
There was nothing out of the ordinary found in the car, the sheriff said.

Was Mr. Haas an experienced hiker?
If so, had he previously trekked from that particular trailhead?
I'm curious about what he purchased at the grocery store. Maybe he was just up for a short hike to a quiet spot or something with the expectation to return by nightfall.
So sorry to hear a loved one is missing...

Over the course of the last 6-8 months I have became closer to this situation. Someone asked if he was a known hitchhiker, no he was not. The family came in contact with me because I trained one of the dogs I was handling to search for human bones. One thing led to another I went out to the place where Chris was believed to be buried, the dog hit on a couple of spots. I contacted the appropriate authorities and nothing was ever done. I feel that missing people are not a priority in Lawrence County, OHio.
I know A LOT more on this situation and strongly believe that Chris was murdered but finding his body is the problem. I have names of parties involved, so so the police but they really aren't doing anything. They even have text messages from the suspect and events that took place.
