    Details of Disappearance

    Rugg was last seen on March 4, 2015. He left home with his roommate and two male friends to go on a fishing trip to Lake Livingston, which was over 100 miles away from his home, and was last seen leaving the lake to go back home to his residence in Katy, Texas. The friends Rugg was with have not been identified; they are described as young Hispanic men driving a tan or yellowish two-door car.

    Rugg left his own vehicle, a 2003 Silver Hyundai Elantra with the Texas license plate number CD4 Z207, behind at home when he left on the fishing trip. When his roommate returned home from the same trip, however, Rugg's vehicle was missing. He didn't have a bank account or any credit cards at the time of his disappearance, and his cellular phone has gone dead. It's uncharacteristic of Rugg to leave without warning. His family stated he worked construction jobs, had plans to attend welding school and wanted to become self-sufficient. Foul play is suspected in his disappearance, which remains unsolved.
