    Details of Disappearance

    Crawley last seen at approximately 9:30 a.m. on April 5, 2004, at his sister's home in the vicinity of the 2400 block of Honeypot Lane in Marianna, Florida. He was very distressed at the time and suddenly ran away from the residence and never returned. He has never been heard from again. His family reported him missing after he didn't contact his mother on Mother's Day.

    Crawley may have traveled to the Jacksonville, Florida area, but foul play is suspected in his disappearance. He dabbled in drugs, particularly methamphetamine, before he went missing. Shortly before he ran out of his sister's home he said he thought someone was out to get him; his family assumed the drugs had made him paranoid.

    Crawley worked moving trailers for different companies, and also as an auto mechanic, in 2004. He was considering starting a business with his brother. He lived in a trailer off Hollister Road and has one biological daughter and one adopted daughter. His family stated it's very uncharacteristic of him to be out of touch with them for so long; he usually had contact with them several times a week. Crawley's sister died of a sudden illness in 2009, and was buried five years to the day after his disappearance. His mother is still alive and hopes he will be found. His case remains unsolved.
