Details of Disappearance

Franks checked into the Miller Motel in Saginaw, Michigan sometime in late 2010. His estranged girlfriend, who is the mother of his child, lived in Saginaw.

Franks checked out of the motel on March 21, 2011, having stayed about five months. His girlfriend said he drove north on Dixie Highway. He has never been heard from again. His family reported him missing in November.

Little evidence is available in Franks's case, but authorities believe he may be deceased. His case remains unsolved.
