Details of Disappearance

Lard was last seen at a friend's residence on Highway 157 in Cloverdale, Alabama, where he'd gone there to get a job, on February 28, 2019. The people at the residence said Lard left with a man named Billy and they took his girlfriend home to Waterloo, Alabama. It's unclear whether he ever returned to the Cloverdale residence. He has never been heard from again.

It's uncharacteristic of Lard to leave without warning. He had no cellular phone, credit cards or bank accounts at the time of his disappearance, making him difficult to track. Although he had been known to walk for great distances, he always kept in regular touch with family and friends and never went a day without talking to someone.

Foul play is suspected in his case, which remains unsolved.
