VIGO COUNTY -- Authorities are looking for information about a case involving the recent disappearance of a Brazil resident.
According to the Indiana State Police, Charles Raymond Chumley Jr., 30, has been missing since Tuesday, Dec. 8.
Around 11:45 p.m., Chumley reportedly left his wife in a vehicle in the driveway of a family member's home at 11300 East Davis Avenue in the Seelyville area and walked into a nearby wooded area.
Allegedly Chumley told his wife he would return in 15 minutes. However, he never returned and has not contacted any family members since.
Chumley's wife, Jennifer, reported her husband missing on Dec. 10.
Officials released a description of Chumley, listing him as being 5'11" and 185 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair. He was last seen wearing brown coveralls and a blue jacket.
Chumley has been entered into the Indiana Data and Communications System (IDACS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's National Crime Information Center (NCIC) as a missing person.
The Brazil Times contacted a relative of Chumley's Tuesday evening, who said the family has been searching on their own since his disappearance and hope the publicity will provide information helpful to the case.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact investigating officer ISP Trooper Matt Ames at 812-299-1151 or 1-800-742-0717.

Body found in northern Vigo County woods
TERRE HAUTE — An autopsy is expected today for a body found in the woods of northeastern Vigo County on Sunday afternoon.
Indiana State Police detectives and crime scene investigators were still working that evening to identify the body, which was found clothed and partially decomposed in woods adjacent to 11236 Grotto Ave., about 1.8 miles north of U.S. 40 on the Clay and Vigo county line, according to a media release issued by the ISP.
The body was found by a person walking in the woods and reported to the Vigo County Sheriff’s Department at 1:41 p.m. According to the release, “Sheriff’s investigators were aware of state police detectives conducting a missing person’s case from the area and requested ISP at the scene.”
Indiana State Police detectives are not speculating at this time on the identity, age, gender or cause of death. However, according to the release, “there are similarities in clothing to an active missing person’s case currently being investigated by ISP detectives.”
While authorities are not releasing information pertaining to the identity of the body, a missing person’s case involving Clay County resident Charles Raymond Chumley Jr., 30, has been ongoing in that area since he was last seen there at 11:45 p.m. Dec. 8.
Chumley was reported missing by his wife, Jennifer, who told police he had left her in a vehicle in the driveway of 11300 E. Davis Drive to walk into a nearby wooded area. According to an earlier release issued by the ISP, the driveway of that property leads to a residence owned by Chumley’s parents. According to a Vigo County map, the properties are less than a mile apart in distance.
A full autopsy is scheduled for this afternoon at Terre Haute Regional Hospital. Dr. Roland Kohr will be the attending pathologist.
