    Caleb Diehl was last seen running errands for his employer on March 30, 2015, in and around Nocona, Texas. The 18-year-old had borrowed a pickup truck from the employer, Ricky Dale Howard, who was also a family friend. The truck mysteriously reappeared just days later, its keys found on their proper hook at the business. Caleb’s cellphone and social media accounts have not been used since he disappeared. Shortly after Caleb’s disappearance, his employer was arrested for three counts of unlawfully possessing a firearm (Howard was convicted of bank fraud in 2007, which makes him ineligible to have a firearm.) In December of 2015, while investigators were searching for Caleb, Howard was arrested on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a 13-year-old child. In June of 2016, he was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to the 2015 firearm charges. In January of 2016, Howard was arrested a second time on two more complaints of aggravated sexual assault of a different child. A trial date has yet to be set for the new sexual assault charges. Howard was up for parole consideration in the summer of 2018 for his firearms conviction, but it was denied in July after he was indicted in April on two counts of indecency with a child and 34 counts of possession of child pornography.

    In October 2018, Howard was indicted on 15 new felony counts, including 12 counts of possession of child pornography with unknown victims. The remaining three counts are for indecency with a child in connection with Caleb Diehl. Officials tell Dateline Howard is a suspect in Caleb’s disappearance, but he has not been charged. Caleb’s family is offering a reward for information leading to his whereabouts.

    Missing North Texas teen: Who is Caleb Diehl?
    Caleb came immediately to my mind when skeletal male remains were found in Bowie, TX this week.

    The linked article has a pretty good rundown of the events surrounding his disappearance.

    [Thanks for moving this to the appropriate place. I did not find it using the search function.]

    Watching this on Crime Watch Daily and right away when they started talking about RH and how he's the first one to help someone. I got a bad feeling about this guy.
