Details of Disappearance

Toole was last seen in Pansey, Alabama on May 15, 1995. He told his granddaughter he wouldn't be there the next day to see off the bus because he was going to central Florida to visit a sick relative for a few days. That night he went to work at the convenience store across the street from his home, but left early a few hours into his shift. He stopped by his granddaughter's home and had a brief conversation with his wife. That night, a relative passed him as he was driving north on Houston County Road 75. He was driving his brown four-door 1984 or 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier with the license plate number 38BLT66. Toole never arrived in Florida and has never been heard from again, and his car has not been recovered. Little information available in his case.
