    From the article (Updated Mar 6, 2019):

    [​IMG]

    [...]

    Travis, 66, went out for his customary run on the afternoon of Monday, February 11, at around 2:30 pm. It was his normal habit to run from his home on Steeple Chase Trail on a route approximately 3-4 miles long that ended back at the house. It usually took Travis, an experienced marathon runner, around 30 minutes.

    When an hour had passed, wife Jean knew something was wrong, and started to look for her husband. That search soon included neighbors, and eventually hundreds of professional searchers doing a land search and using sonar, drones, helicopters, and K-9′s, as well as local residents who checked their own property.

    [...]

    He was spotted by neighbors just after leaving his house, then later spotted running on Long Ferry Road towards I-85. There were other reports that he was actually seen on 85 near the Rowan-Davidson County line, but no sign of Rick Travis has been uncovered.

    It seems from the posted articles that a lot of people put a lot of effort into finding Mr. Travis relatively soon after his wife realized something was wrong. I hope for his wife's sake, he is found soon.
