Details of Disappearance

Smith was last seenĀ at the intersection of Kosciusko Road and Robin Hood Circle in his hometown of Philadelphia, Mississippi on April 8, 2017. He has never been heard from again.

It's uncharacteristic of Smith to leave without warning. He disappeared just before he was supposed to enter an inpatient drug rehabilitation center; his sister had already filled out the paperwork. She believes he met with foul play and that people in the community know what happened to him. His case remains unsolved.
