Details of Disappearance

Emerson was last seen in Snyder, Texas between midnight and 4:00 a.m. on January 10, 2015. He has never been heard from again. It's uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning; he kept in regular touch with his family. His mother reported him missing on February 18, after she went to his house to check on him and found out he hadn't been there in weeks.

Emerson's roommates stated he had moved to Lubbock, Texas, but he could not be found in Lubbock or anywhere else. Many agencies give the date of his disappearance as December 24, 2014 or January 1, 2015.
