Details of Disappearance

Richardson was last seen in Surveyor, West Virginia on December 3, 2015. Witnesses reported he suffered from a seizure that day, and when he came to, he ran up a hill into the woods near Griffith's Hollow. He has never been heard from again.

Richardson's family stated his disappearance is uncharacteristic of his behavior. They described him as a devoted father to his two daughters, and when he last spoke to his brother a few days before he disappeared, he said he was going to open up a savings account and turn his life around. His case remains unsolved.
