Details of Disappearance

Worsham was last seen at his home in Wyoming, Delaware on July 23, 2007. He left his residence at 3:00 p.m. to go hunting. He was carrying a shotgun, a cane and a black leather wallet at the time. When he wasn't back by 7:00 p.m., his loved ones began looking for him. They notified the police the next morning. An extensive search of the area turned up no indication of Worsham's whereabouts.

Worsham enjoys painting and taking daily walks. His family believes he might have accepted a ride with a stranger who robbed him. His case remains unsolved.
