LACEY'S SPRING — A man told authorities Thursday he may have given a ride to a missing Lacey's Spring resident on or about the same day he was reported missing.
Also, Sgt. Chad Smith, an investigator with the Morgan County Sheriff's Department, said the two Shih Tzu dogs Franklin Payne had with him the day he disappeared returned home in good shape a week ago Friday.

It seems a little strange Mr Payne was fond enough to take his dogs with him, but then is thought to have abandoned them to hitch a ride.
I wish the use of GPS shoes was more widespread - I am sure it could save so much heartbreak. Is this a silver alert?We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

Franklin said that an autopsy will need to be performed on the body, but she feels confident that the body is Payne’s.
