Details of Disappearance

Elton was last seen in Dixie County, Florida on April 26, 2017. He got in a dispute with his wife that day and the police were called to the residence as a result. Later that night, the home caught fire.

Elton's wife was home at the time and survived the fire, which was later determined to be arson. Elton himself has never been heard from again, however. His wife was the last person to see him, but authorities aren't calling her a suspect in his disappearance.

Authorities don't believe Elton died in the house fire, but there hasn't been any trace of him since the day it happened. His case remains unsolved.
