Details of Disappearance

Crosby was last seen in Tishomingo, Mississippi on December 18, 2009. The night before he disappeared, he spent the night with his sister and told her one of his daughter's ex-boyfriends had threatened him and he was frightened.

The next morning he returned to his home in the 30 block of County Road 87; he lived with his daughter and her three children. His daughter stated she was worried about him; she stated Crosby was sick and depressed, and thought someone was trying to kill him.

Crosby's daughter last saw him standing outside in the backyard that morning. It was below freezing and raining.

At 11:30 a.m., Crosby's daughter left home to run some errands. When she returned, he was gone, and she found his eyeglasses in the front yard. He has never been heard from again.

Crosby may have taken an overnight bag, his debit card and some of his medications with him. Since his disappearance, he hasn't used his bank account or his health insurance cards. He has family members in Franklin County, Alabama. His case remains unsolved.
