    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Hodgkinson was last seen at his mother's house in the 3800 block of Pheasant Street on September 11, 1988. Hodgkinson was a welder, had came in that afternoon to shower, then headed out to pick up a part for a grinder that needed to be painted. His mother knew he was planning to come back soon, because he left his welding equipment out, something he never did for long periods of time. Hodgkinson told her not to worry about making him anything for supper, because he would eat while he was out.

    According to reports, Hodgkinson left his mother's Pinehurst home to visit with his employer and give him the status on a welding job in progress. He disappeared after leaving his boss' home.
    His vehicle, a 1988 Dodge Dakota pickup truck, was found abandoned two days later on a dead-end dirt road in a wooded area off of FM 1130, on an old oil field road that led to a soybean field in rural Orange County. The vehicle was locked and the keys were missing. A camera, semiautomatic rifle, a military style rifle (AR15), and a large stereo player were missing from the truck. His jack had been taken out of the cab and thrown in the back of the truck. The truck and its tires were new, and there was no reason for him to have the tire jack out.

    Four days later, his father walked into the Pinehurst Police Department to report that his son was missing. Intensive searches were conducted by police, deputies, friends, families and civic organizations. Foul play is possible.

    The link above no longer works, here is a new article written in January of 2013.

    http://therecordlive.com/2013/01/02/ray-hodgkinson-missing-24-years/

    It basically covers the same information seen on The Charley Project. LE believes Eulan was met with foul play and that he knew his murderer.

    The picture in the article was really heartbreaking, hope she gets her answers.

    Just looking over possible MPs for a John Doe in KY and stumbled upon Eulan Hodgkinson's NamUS.
    His DNA status still reads Status: Sample available - Not yet submitted
    Hope they will update it soon.

    It sounds horrible to hope that is is but, it would bring the family a little if it could be him.

    Human remains above still not positively identified but LE believes it was someone reported missing less than year ago (the person's family has been made aware): http://www.beaumontenterprise.com/n...dead-body-found-behind-Pinehurst-12344564.php

    So very likely NOT Eulan.
