    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Hodgkinson was last seen at his mother's house in the 3800 block of Pheasant Street on September 11, 1988. Hodgkinson was a welder, had came in that afternoon to shower, then headed out to pick up a part for a grinder that needed to be painted. His mother knew he was planning to come back soon, because he left his welding equipment out, something he never did for long periods of time. Hodgkinson told her not to worry about making him anything for supper, because he would eat while he was out.

    According to reports, Hodgkinson left his mother's Pinehurst home to visit with his employer and give him the status on a welding job in progress. He disappeared after leaving his boss' home.
    His vehicle, a 1988 Dodge Dakota pickup truck, was found abandoned two days later on a dead-end dirt road in a wooded area off of FM 1130, on an old oil field road that led to a soybean field in rural Orange County. The vehicle was locked and the keys were missing. A camera, semiautomatic rifle, a military style rifle (AR15), and a large stereo player were missing from the truck. His jack had been taken out of the cab and thrown in the back of the truck. The truck and its tires were new, and there was no reason for him to have the tire jack out.

    Four days later, his father walked into the Pinehurst Police Department to report that his son was missing. Intensive searches were conducted by police, deputies, friends, families and civic organizations. Foul play is possible.

    Hodgkinson: ‘I just wish I could have some closure’

    snipped from article:
    According to Doyle Hodgkinson, three days before his disappearance, he told a convenience store clerk, “ he knew something serious, but wasn’t going to say anything unless it went to court and then he would testify.”
    Much more at link. Tim Miller's group searched for him.

    Prayers for Eulan's Mother and family.

    Eulan has been missing almost 22 years. Come home soon.

    The link above no longer works, here is a new article written in January of 2013.


    It basically covers the same information seen on The Charley Project. LE believes Eulan was met with foul play and that he knew his murderer.

    Over the years, friends of Doyle Hodgkinson have asked her why she continues to live in the same place where she last saw her son. It is because this is “home” she tells them. Although she knows her son will never return home, she can’t let go and for a moment hope he will come back to the place he knows of as home too.
    The picture in the article was really heartbreaking, hope she gets her answers.

    Search continues for missing loved ones


    As Orange starts off a new year looking forward, some families are looking towards the past in hopes a memory or a small detail can bring a loved one home again.

    Eulan Ray Hodgkinson Jr. was 31 when he disappeared on September 11, 1988.
    Intensive searches were conducted, however, Hodgkinson remains missing 27 years later.

    Foul play is suspected in his disappearance.

    Not sure if this is related to Eulan's case but human remains were found in a wooded area in Pinehurst by LE conducting a missing persons investigation: http://www.panews.com/2017/10/19/mis...ins-discovery/

    I don't know the location of Eulan's boss' house but these remains are only about 2 miles from his mother's house: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/3800...93!2d30.098101
