Unfortunately, I think they really need to be focusing on any bodies of water he may have traveled across/alongside. IMO

I have been seeing this on FB from my Asheville and surrounding area friends. I never thought to look for it here! Sorry to see he's still messing, but glad he's here.

Distressing. Missing a concert with friends and missing work are worrisome. Too many days unseen and unheard-from. SMH.
He may have had a car accident and he is too injured to get to the road and the car is not viewable from the road. LE is probably looking for this kind of thing among other possibilities.
Hoping for the best.

How long had he lived here? What drew him to come to Asheville? Asheville is very diverse.
His license plate suggests Pro-life, was he active in that community or protests that have broken out recently with Roe vs Wade changed?

Maybe they can combine them? This thread seems to have more responses. Reported to mods.

Looking on his mother's SM posts, she say he went to work on Friday 24th (as reported by his employer) and then went to the Ingles grocery store located at 669 Haywood Road. The manager there viewed video of him food shopping by himself, then walking to his car. There did not appear to be anyone else in the car with him.

From there it seems the trail goes cold.

Where did you see the license plate info? The pictures of his vehicle in all of the articles are "similar to" photos of the same type of car not HIS car. UPDATED comment: I found a link to the license plate. It is here (it's FB but it's a copy of the LE missing poster)

I wondered about that too. Could heightened emotions the day he went missing (June 24 was same day of announcement) that might have led to some type of altercation at the grocery parking lot or while driving home? His "Choose Life" plate (from NCMEC flyer)

I think that would have been spotted in the store cameras. But you never know anymore. There are crazy, scary times.

There is a FB page for Gabriel. There are now reports that Gabriel was seen on a neighbor’s ring doorbell at 3:41 on Friday leaving his apartment alone.
Furthermore, Gabriel has been diagnosed with ADHD and high function autism.
