"He didn’t just vanish into thin air."
More than five years after her younger brother, Cody, went missing, Tracie Farmer falls back on this basic premise, the only thing of which she feels certain: A 5-foot-9, 170-pound weightlifter is no butterfly in the wind.
Innumerable times she’s parsed through the facts of the night he went missing.
There was the date with a girl in Bristol on a Saturday night; the bouncer at a bar who remembered the then 24-year-old’s "baby face;" the worker who placed him at a different bar later on, making calls on a pay phone.
There were the eight phone calls Matney made with a calling card, most of them lost to investigators, and the grainy footage of him in his truck, talking to an unidentified person in another truck, in the predawn hours of April 28, 2002.
Finally, there was Matney’s 1991 Ford Ranger parked outside the now-defunct bar Confetti’s, facing U.S. Highway 11W.
