Details of Disappearance

Meeks was last seen in his hometown of Reidsville, North Carolina on November 24, 1988. His wife stated they had an argument and Meeks left their home at 6:00 p.m., driving his black 1973 Ford truck with the North Carolina license plate number CTS7429. The couple's three children, however, said they had not seen their father at all that evening.

Meeks's wife had filed for divorce in late 1987, but the couple reconciled in the autumn of 1988. They may have been planning to separate again, however; at the time of his disappearance, Meeks had retained an attorney and was seeking custody of his children.

Meeks was supposed to go to his mother's residence for the Thanksgiving holiday dinner, but never arrived. His sister reported him missing on December 4. His truck has never been located. His case remains unsolved.
