    I recently found out about this case. His co-worker turned away for a brief moment and when he looked back, Chris was gone. They found some of his belongings but Chris was never seen again. I'm not sure if investigators are leaning towards foul play but the circumstances are strange.

    Details of Disappearance
    Thompkins was working in a wooded area near County Line Road off of Warm Springs Road in Harris County, Georgia on January 25, 2002. He was accompanied by three co-workers, all of whom worked approximately 50 feet from one another. He was last seen at 1:30 p.m. One of the other employees looked away from Thompkins for a moment; by the time he glanced in that direction again, Thompkins had disappeared. He has never been heard from again.

    Volunteers searched the area shortly after Thompkins's disappearance. One of his boots was located, as was a piece of blue fiber on a nearby barbed wire fence. Twelve cents was discovered near Thompkins's tools. Tompkins's other boot was found elsewhere in July, five months after his disappearance. There was no other evidence indicating his whereabouts. His case remains unsolved.

    Thompkins resided in Ellerslie, Georgia in early 2002.

    Very, very strange. Sounds like his mother suspects foul play on the part of the co-workers.

    I'm assuming the area where the second boot was found was searched thoroughly.... To rule out his body being dumped there.
