Details of DisappearanceFarrer was last seen between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on September 13, 2002. He was fishing on a boat in Rocky Comfort Creek near Louisville, Georgia at the time. He has never been heard from again. The same day as his disappearance, his boat was found in the water, positioned over a fallen tree nearly one foot above the waterline off Clarks Mill Road west of Louisville, at Farrer's favorite fishing place. On the boat were three fishing rods and Farrer's hat, upside down. His truck was parked on shore nearby; his keys and shotgun were inside. An extensive search of Rocky Comfort Creek and the surrounding woods turned up no indications of Farrer's whereabouts. Authorities believe he probably suffered a mishap on the water and drowned, but they did investigate other theories, such as foul play, suicide and a voluntary disappearance. Farrer was not having any financial problems at the time of his disappearance and he has not used any of his credit cards since he went missing. Investigators found no evidence that he left of his own accord. He remains classified as a missing person and his disappearance remains unsolved.

The Disappearance of William Farrer
Bill Farrer, "Bo Peep," to his friends, was semi-retired and enjoying life. When he wasn't working he was taking care of his mom. And, when he wasn't doing that, he was fishing at his favorite spot on Rocky Comfort Creek. That was the last time he was seen by anyone.
Mitchell McGraw, busissman and friend: "I wish I did know. I guess it's just a mystery."
Local businessman Mitchell McGraw says Farrer was his best friend.
Mitchell: "I guess what's been so hard for the family and all the friends is not knowing and not knowing what happened."
Authorities say Farrer's boat was abandoned in the creek, and his truck was found beside the creek. That was September 12, 2002. Mitchell and several of his friends were some of the first to look for Farrer.
