    Details of Disappearance

    Nelson was last seen in Potosi, Missouri on January 5, 2012. He vanished after he went to get some of his wife's belongings from a trailer, and has never been heard from again. Nelson normally kept in touch with his mother once a week, but she hasn't heard from him since he went missing. She has gotten phone calls saying he was murdered; she believes he is dead. Little evidence is available in Nelson's case, however; it remains unsolved.
