    Law enforcement search area near home of missing Oconee man

    Oconee County, Georgia -
    The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office joined other area law enforcement on Tuesday to search for Chad Ruark, a 42-year-old Oconee County man who has been missing since

    Feb. 23.

    Several K9 and rescue teams searched the Carson Groves Road area near Ruark’s residence. Oconee sheriff’s officials wrote on their Facebook wall the search was not due

    to any specific evidence indicating Ruark is in the area, but to rule out if he is there or not.

    On Monday, the Oconee sheriff’s office offered a $2,000 reward for information leading to the disappearance of Ruark, who was last seen at his home in the southern end of

    Oconee County.

    Many more details here (unfortunately not a lot of MSM coverage on Chad's case):

    Family desperate to hear from missing Oconee County man - Story | WAGA

    [...]
    Investigators said his ex-wife did receive a text from an unknown number on Sunday, but could not confirm it was actually from him. The text read, "I found a place where I'm not the outcast. I don't care what you wo with the stuff I left, be in touch in a few weeks, Chad.” The Oconee County Sheriff's Office has asked the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to conduct an analysis on the cell phone text to try to determine who sent it.
    [...]
    Amanda Ashley said she and Ruark have an amicable relationship after a divorce nine years ago. She said he would never leave his two children (redacted)
    [...]
    "He didn't mention our kids. He would have at least said tell the kids I love them." she said.
    :(

    Per the embedded video
    http://www.fox5atlanta.com/news/100129023-story

    The Sheriff knows the Ruark family family personally. In other recent missing child cases, public sentiment has been that in such situations, LE should step aside and allow another entity to oversee the investigation. This was due to the possibility of conflict of interest, etc. I don't know if I share that sentiment, nor am I saying this is the situation here.

    I'm very concerned it appears Chad lives alone, and the last person to see him was the family member who dropped him off at home. How was this part of the timeline verified? Also, the context of his last text message is very troubling. :notgood:

    My HinkyMeter is redlining. There are red flags all over the place.

    May an objective and thorough investigation continue, along with searches for him. His ex-wife appears thoroughly distraught - and thoroughly convinced that last text wasn't from him. Seeing his two kids on camera with her broke my heart.

    I hope he is found safe - and soon! :please:

    He was found buried in a shallow grave near his home per Oconee county sheriff Scott Berry. It is a homicide and a suspect is in custody.

    No NO NOOOO!!!!

    Do we know if the BIL is the "family member" who was dropped Chad off at home?

    This makes me so :furious:! What's even worse is the absolute devastation that's been done to his family by one of his own.

    :eek:verreaction:

    I can't get the image from the video posted upthread of Chad's two precious children, stoically sitting next to their mom, as she read the last text message from the unknown number. She knew in her heart that something just was NOT right. Neither did we!

    Chad's children deserved to have their father in their lives for much longer. He won't be there to see them graduate from high school/college. He will miss their weddings, becoming a grandfather. He'll never get another chance to guide them with his knowledge, wisdom and love.
    :tears:

    We see cases here that just defy logic, and leave us shaking our heads. Chad's loss cuts me to my core because it was his own brother in law who took him away from his children and family.

    The wake of this tragedy will reverberate for a long time to come. I send my deepest condolences to Chad's children, their mother, and his extended family. I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers as they grieve, and prepare themselves for the adjudication process.

    May the perpetrator of this crime face maximum justice. No penalty is too harsh. That's just how I see it.

    :twocents:

    Rest In Peace, Chad.
    You will be missed....

    :rose:
