Details of Disappearance

Priestley was last seen in Cross Lanes, West Virginia on February 29, 2016. He has never been heard from again. Although he lived with a girlfriend, she didn't report him missing; it was his mother who reported his disappearance on March 16, after he didn't call her on his birthday.

Several months after Priestley went missing, his home on Christian Drive burned down. It's unclear if the fire was related to his case. He left behind four children and was expecting the birth of his first grandchild at the time of his disappearance. His case remains unsolved.
