    Details of Disappearance

    Harper was last seen at the AT&T store in Ironton, Ohio at 7:45 p.m. on April 20, 2016. He has never been heard from again. Four days after his disappearance, his dark blue and gray Toyota RAV4 with the Ohio license plate number BZ98AZ was found abandoned on County Road 5 in Kitts Hill, Ohio. Harper was close to his young son and it's extremely uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning; his family fears he met with foul play. His case remains unsolved.
