Details of Disappearance

Austin lived alone in a very rural area on Broomfield Road in Pope County, Arkansas in 2019. He was very lonely and depressed and still grieving his wife, who had passed away in an accident several years earlier. He had very few friends and none of his relatives lived nearby.

He was last seen on May 28. On July 2, his daughter asked the police to do a welfare check, as she hadn't heard from her father in over a month. When they went to his home he was gone, and Mimi, his late wife's dog, wasn't there either, but his wallet, phone and two vehicles were still at the residence. A missing persons report was filed at that time.

Austin has connections to the Hot Springs, Arkansas area. Few details are available in his case.
