    Details of Disappearance

    Edwards was last seen in his hometown of Holly Bluff, Mississippi on November 4, 2007. The family member who last saw him at home in the 200 block of Bowie Quater Road fell asleep on the couch at 2:00 a.m. When she woke up at 6:00 a.m., Edwards was gone. Two witnesses later said they saw him walking on a road thirty miles from town during the early morning hours. He has never been heard from again. At the time of his disappearance, Edwards was spending nights at his daughter's home and staying at a nursing home during the day.

    Edwards was a farmer his whole life. His wife died about a year before his disappearance. His daughter believes he may have been a homicide victim. His case remains unsolved.
