    Details of Disappearance

    Grace was last seen at his residence at the Shady Oaks Trailer Park in the 1500 block of Pitkin Road in Leesville, Louisiana on November 25, 2009. He left his wallet, jacket and shoes behind at home and has never been heard from again. He had recently been laid off from his job at Fort Polk and was awaiting a call to get re-employed. He frequently walked places, as he didn't have a vehicle and relied on friends for rides. Grace's family reported him missing on December 20, after he missed Thanksgiving and then his brother's birthday. His family described him as a family-oriented man who enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews. They stated Grace had previously left for short time periods, but it was uncharacteristic of him to to miss family gatherings. His case remains unsolved.
