Details of Disappearance

North was last seen leaving his sister's house in Hyden, Kentucky at 8:15 p.m. on June 24, 2018. He was last seen driving south on Kentucky 421. His cellular phone last pinged from Mozelle, Kentucky, and this is the last indication of his whereabouts. He didn't show up for his shift at work the next day and has never been heard from again.

On July 1, North's vehicle, a dark gray 2003 Dodge Dakota with a push bar, fog lights and a chrome toolbox, was found abandoned and burned in a field off a strip mine road near Warbranch, Kentucky, just off Kentucky 1850. There was no indication of North's whereabouts.

According to his family, North wasn't involved with drugs, didn't have a high risk lifestyle and had a reputation as a hard worker who didn't cause trouble. The only problem in his life was his relationship with the mother of his daughter, and her new boyfriend. North fought with them over visitation and custody issues, but neither of them has been named as a suspect or person of interest in his case.

His disappearance remains unsolved.
