    @Tbarron12 told me that there was an uneaten gas station cheeseburger found in the front seat which made her think he had very recently stopped in at a gas station. Adds a little something to the hinky meter, moo!

    Agreed! I would think that if the cell phone was found in the car with the rest of his belongings that they would have used it to their advantage. After almost a year and a half I have to believe that something happened in Gastonia on the 26th but I do NOT think that he was involved in an accident that he had to walk away from. That doesn’t explain the sudden “about-face” in direction on the 27th or how the car was found totaled (presumably after it was picked up in Asheville on the 28th) in the woods in Gastonia (?)

    I'm posting this here due to the somewhat close proximity to the accident site involving Nathaniel's car and I-85 as his potential travel route. A body was found in Albemarle, NC which is approx. 1 hr 15 mins from Gatsonia, NC (car accident site) and about 35 mins from I-85 in Concord, NC.

    Body found inside former Sagebrush Steakhouse restaurant in Albemarle
    • inside the former Sagebrush Steakhouse restaurant on Highway 24/27
    • “heavily decomposed”
    • no signs of foul play

    Map showing Gastonia and the Sagebrush Steakhouse: Google Maps

    Looking at reviews and such it appears to have been closed for about two years.

    Hmmm, you never know... good idea. Very interesting.
    "Heavily decomposed" makes me pause a bit... locations make it certainly possible.

    Most likely the remains are of a homeless person who snuck inside for shelter. But if NS was wandering around in a daze from his accident, he might have done the same thing.

    Do we know for sure the plates were on the car when it was found? Could the readers pick up another car using his plates?
