    Details of Disappearance

    Wood got into a gold-colored car with some friends in Mountain Grove, Missouri on September 6, 2015. Later that day, he called someone and they picked him up at a Dollar General store in the town of Ava, Missouri in neighboring Douglas County, over thirty miles southwest of Mountain Grove. Police determined he went to Casey's Store after that, then to a residence in a remote, rugged area elsewhere in Douglas County. He walked away from that residence and has never been heard from again. An extensive search of the area turned up no indication of Wood's whereabouts, and since his disappearance there's been no activity on his cellular phone or social media accounts. Few details are available in his case, but investigators do not believe foul play was a factor in his disappearance.
