    Details of Disappearance

    Mohler was last seen in Newton, North Carolina on August 17, 2012. He worked the third shift as a maintenance employee at Gregory Wood Products in the 2800 block of Woodtech Drive. He texted his wife at 7:30 p.m., then texted his boss at 8:05 p.m., saying he had finished a waterline repair. He has never been heard from again. The next morning his truck was found in the parking lot of the business. His keys and cellular phone were lying in the dirt near the truck and his glasses were in the bed of the truck. Authorities said there was evidence of a struggle, but no bloodstains or weapons present at the scene, and no sign of Mohler,

    Foul play is suspected in Mohler's case; both police and his loved ones believe he was attacked at his workplace and abducted. He's described as a religious man who was close to his family and hoped to be named the legal guardian of his young granddaughter. His case remains unsolved.
