AL - Randall Harold Whitfield, 40, Haleyville, 8 December 2001
Missing: Randall Harold Whitfield
Nickname/Alias: Randy, Red
Age last seen: 40
Hair color: Red
Eye color: Green
Whitfield was last seen by an acquaintance at approximately 6:30 p.m. on December 8, 2001, at his residence in the 300 block of County Road in Haleyville, Winston County, AL. He may be driving a black Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck.
"When we went to his trailer, the doors were unlocked, his supper from that night was cooked and sitting on the stove," Horsley said. "His dog didn't have any food or water, and I know Randy wouldn't have left the dog like that. I knew then that something didn't add up."
Horsley said she realized that her son was missing "two days short of three weeks," after he had last been seen. That time period extended into the Christmas holiday.
"He loved Christmas," she said. "When we went in the trailer there were wrapped presents that he had bought. He would have never left like that and not told us. Somebody took him from that trailer."
Who exactly took him from the trailer, if that's what happened, and where they took him, are questions that investigators have never been able to answer.
"He just basically disappeared off the face of the earth," said Haleyville Police Chief Kyle Reogas. "Somebody out there knows something and has the answers to the questions we need answered."
Whitfield's disappearance may or may not be related to the Thrasher murders which took place in Haleyville two days later. Read more about both in this interview:

The Whitfield and Thrasher cases fascinate me. Are they related or coincidental? While there is nothing publicly available that to me shows they are connected, it sure seems like a heck of a coincidence.
