Details of Disappearance

Combs left his home in Inkom, Idaho on October 22, 2015. He was en route to visit his parents in South Dakota, driving a white 2003 Mazda B4000 pickup truck with the Idaho license plate number 1BT2152, a camper shell, and damage and homemade repairs to the front driver's side quarter panel.

Combs kept in touch with his wife during his trip. He never arrived at his parents' home, however, and has never been heard from again.

On May 25, 2017, a year and a half after he disappeared, his truck was found in a roadside ditch halfway between the towns of Ten Sleep and Worland in Wyoming, a seven-hour drive from Inkom. It appeared to have been there for some time. A search of the area turned up no sign of him.

Combs is an Air Force veteran. He and his wife co-owned the Mountain Sweeties Apiary, a beekeeping business. His disappearance remains unsolved.
