Matt Hatfield was last seen by his family on Nov. 29, according to Capt. Doug Conway. However, the family didn't report him missing to police until Tuesday. Conway said investigators want to know if anyone has seen him. "We're looking into this disappearance as possibly criminal," Conway said. Police conducted a crime scene investigation at Hatfield's residence in the 400 block of Roosevelt Drive south of Butte. Conway wouldn't reveal details about the investigation. Conway said Hatfield's mother owns the property on Roosevelt Drive, where Hatfield was living and caring for her at the time of his disappearance. Police searched the property Tuesday and couldn't find Hatfield or his pickup truck. Investigators later discovered Hatfield's son had the missing man's blue 2005 Toyota, Conway said, but did not expound. People with information are asked to contact Conway at 497-1123 or detective Ed Lester at 497-1171. Reporter John Grant Emeigh may be reached via e-mail at email@example.com or by telephone, 496-5511.
