    It seems odd that his family waited so long to report him missing. I'd like to know what their thoughts were. Had there been any kind of falling out that day? Had he come out of the closet? Was it normal for him to be out of contact with his family for extended periods of time? Did they think he was involved in criminal activities?

    Definitely wonder why they waited so long to report him missing.

    I don't know, but I suspect his birth year and age are wrong in this missing profile.

    I found an Ernest Lonnie Earls SS Death record on Ancestry with date of death June 15, 1987, place of death Pocahontas, Arkansas, and it says in the description: EST DEATH AFTER 7 YR ABS. So I'm 99% sure this is the missing man. The date of birth listed is 17 Jul 1963. How could they be off by 3 years on DOB when listing him missing?

    With him being so young, do you think he ran away so he wouldn't have to go back to military and is possibly alive somewhere?

    Possibly. There have been cases of people running away and living under different identities but there is no motive for that in the little info we know about his case.

    That could be an option. He might not even know he was reported missing.
