    I wonder where the wife was when she finally reported him missing... "out of state" doesn't narrow it down too much.

    Yates was last seen at his home in the Fairmont Park East Subdivision. A cab driver took him home from a bar around midnight. When Yates went inside to get money, the cabbie said he never returned. After waiting awhile, the driver gave up and left.

    Yates was last seen by a taxi driver who took him home from the Neon Moon Saloon. The driver dropped Yates off and said he went inside to get money, but never came back out.

    Yates' family says his wife also abruptly disappeared, but finally turned up in South Carolina with no knowledge of where her husband might be.

    *sigh* If only the cabbie had taken umbrage to being stiffed for his fare and called the police at that moment to come investigate...

    I'm bumping this one. His family are working very hard to find him. I have many questions regarding his wife missing then shows up in SC with no idea as to where her husband is????? Hinky meter going crazy! IMO

    Can understand the cabbie, not worth challenging someone for a fare.
    Probably did the is it worth it, he decided no.
    Instinct is powerful.

    Plus, if he really disappeared on the 31st (Friday) night, unless he was working weekends it's possible nothing happened to him until sometime Saturday or Sunday.

    I wonder if Equusearch found anything. It sounds like this is a very active LE investigation.

    Wish they would release some more info to the MSM so I could speculate on it.

    Close to 100 people crowded into the Bayshore Baptist Church on a mission to find the 60-year-old man, who's been missing since January 31.

    "I tried his cell phone because he always answers my calls," said Yates' sister, Dixie Yates. "And when he didn't, I knew something was wrong."

    "This doesn't happen," said sister Melanie Bass. "This doesn't happen. Something's wrong."

    It appears that the person in bold is not very fond of his "so-called wife." Oh, and some interesting comments on the article too.
