Franklin, get your butt home, your wife is looking for ya' !!
I'll bet he found a REALLY good fishing spot...............
When they start hitting your line, you don't stop until they stop.
08-15-2015, 12:26 PM #3Strickland’s wife told police that she last saw him just before he left their home on Randybrook Street at about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday to go to a nearby car wash. He left driving a white 1996 Ford Aerostar, which has damage to the right, rear quarter panel and a magnetic sign that reads “Strickland Custom Building and Remodeling.”
An hour later, Strickland’s wife called him, and he told her he was going to McCoy’s Building Supply to get materials for a job, the press release stated. When the woman called her husband again two hours after that, the phone went straight to voicemail and has continued to do so ever since.
However, employees at McCoy’s told Strickland’s wife that they hadn’t seen him there.
“One of Strickland’s employees told an officer that the morning before he went missing, Strickland said he would come out to a jobsite in Central, but he never showed,” the press release stated. “The employee said that happened a few times during the past few weeks, which is unlike his boss.”
Kayleigh Evans, Stricklands’s daughter, said it wasn’t like her father to disappear without at least letting her or his mother know where he is going.
“We’ve checked with family, friends and the usual places he goes. No one has seen him,” Evans said. “He had everyday stress just like everybody, but this isn’t like him. Daddy, please just come home.”
Many more details now........there's definitely something going on here.

Why do they suspect foul play?

Ever notice how when these missing persons reports are first issued there is hardly ever any talk about a fight, an argument, or harsh words being spoken before the person left the house ? They always make it sound so innocent and bland.
I think this is one of those cases where somebody was mad and upset when they "went missing".

Glad he was found safe, can I make my joke about whether he owns a propane company now?
