    GA - Vicente Cruz, 45, Atlanta, 1 May 2017

    Vicente Cruz was reported missing after his friend said he met someone to sell his truck and she has not heard from him since.

    Vicente Cruz's friend said he arranged a meeting on Monday on Grand Avenue in Atlanta with someone whom he met on Craiglist to sell his Ford F-150.

    She said that once they were at the designated meeting spot, he told her to leave because it would take awhile to check the truck.

    Cruz said he would call his friend, but he never did. He was reported missing on Wednesday.

    Confused about the dates...

    http://www.cleveland19.com/story/353...ampaign=buffer

    This article says that they went to sell the truck on May 1. Girlfriend went with him, I'm guessing in another vehicle so that they could drive home after selling truck. But he told her to leave. The articles posted above say the truck was found on May 2 with blood inside, but then this article says the girlfriend reported him missing on May 3.

    Confusing...Yes

    Why the report date of May 3rd?

    Who found the truck on May 2nd? The article states police found on May 3rd.

    I'm thinking the truck was found before he was reported missing then LE put 2 and 2.

    This guy is in extreme danger if not deceased, I'm very worried.

    He looks like he's possibly an immigrant and they carry a lot of cash because they tend to not have bank accounts. They get targeted to get "rolled" (robbed) often. The blood in the truck is very concerning.

    Most recent article posted and new info to me

    We processed the vehicle, and we did our due diligence to try to identify the blood,” police Lt. Ricardo Vazquez said at a news conference Friday. “But at this point in time I can’t comment on the amount of blood that was in the vehicle."

    So, this is a bit suspicious on multiple levels. The girlfriend was last to see him, and it's only her word that he met someone to sell the truck. Hinky.

    Hopefully the motel has video surveillance cameras.

    Are these all the same property? Probably a rental, or vacant.

    A report with a link I tried to go to by a well known news team...mentioned abandoned house. I think I have info but clicking on it leads to no post.
    Happy to post the info if interested and ok with mods.

    So...the hotel address leads to this hotel here

    So the time travel distance between Grand and Peachtree is 15 to 16 minutes.

    The guy tells her to go because it will take a while to check out the truck and she doesn't report him missing for TWO days. Seems odd. Easy enough for LE to verify he actuslly had a Craigslist ad, but could she have set him up??
    Hinky meter going off over here....
