    Accident, perhaps? I wonder if it's possible that Jeff's car went off the road and fell into Lake Lanier?

    It's possible. It seems he was mentally disabled.

    I think that is a typo, I think it should have said guy. It seems like someone took advantage of this young man, a serial killer, perhaps. I am convinced there was a serial killer operating in the 80's who prayed on young men.

    That was my first thought, too, Danaya.

    I just read an article on one of the serial killers and wish I hadn't...mind-bogglingly horrifying. It included excerpts from his autobiography "Final Truth"...Pee Wee Gaskins. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to the site although someone else here did (that's how I found it).

    On August 6, 2012, mother of two Tamala Wells drove away from her home in Detroit. She has not been seen or heard from since she made her last phone call at 11:45 pm. Her car was recovered three days later, 20 minutes away from her home. Friends and family members are baffled.


    Consider featuring a missing person in your signature - a simple act that could get the right pair of eyes on the case.

    Bumping this case and wondering if anyone else has gone missing after encountering a bearded man named "Jeff"?

    http://missingpersonsdata.com/usa/Ge...se-details/528

    Employees at the farm told investigators that Tim was last seen around 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 6, 1987, leaving with a man named Jeff who was said to be driving a 1972 to 1974 Chevy Impala. Jeff, whose last name is unknown, was described as a big-boned, muscular person who was about 5'10" tall, 180 lbs., with brown hair and beard.

    According to his family, Tim has a learning disability and therefore acted much younger than his age

    Is it possible that there was never a Jeff. Maybe he was made up as a cover for something happening to him at the farm.

    One year later and still no DNA, fingerprints, dental on NamUs. Hope they collect & update the file.

    I'm going to try to do some newspaper research on this case, if there are any archives available online & keep the thread posted. As Dotr mentioned:

    and as Georgiagirl mentioned:

    Maybe there was a pattern of activity in the area involving any or all of the following: missing young men, any other encounters with a mysterious "Jeff" or some other alias, and also the Sleepy Fox Farm.

    Cases like this, involving people with certain types of disabilities (learning, developmental) that make them more vulnerable always get to me.

    I will tell you, since I live very close to this area, that Forsythe county in the 1980's/90's was still extremely country and rural. A lot of farmland and not an overwhelming amount of civilization. Today, it is very different; very built up, subdivisions/commerical areas everywhere. If Tim is buried up there, he will not be easy to find. The fact that he hasn't been found after all the things built up there makes me wonder if he's there at all.

    Is the farm still in operation? I did a quick search but couldn't find anything with that name.
    Was the farm even searched? It is possible that this Jeff person was made up and Tim never made it off of the farm that day.
    All you need is love and. . . .(fill in the blank)

    If everything was on the up and up... meaning that "Jeff" really was taking Timothy home to Snellville... there is no reason for them to pass the lake.

    The quickest way, in 1987, I believe would have been a right onto Kemp Road, a left on McGinnis Ferry, a right onto Lawrenceville-Suwanee and unto Snellville. Probably 30-45 minute drive. Even if they didn't go that way there shouldn't have been a reason to pass the lake. They could have crossed the Chattahoochee River and gone in there. It's rare for cars to end up in the river... but it does happen.
    Atlanta... Making it easy to be nasty since 1847.
