Details of Disappearance

McNutt was last seen dropping off his step-grandson at Maywood Middle School near the 1600 block of Marguerite Avenue in Corning, California at 8:30 a.m. on May 4, 2004. He left the school to go to his job at a local hardware store, but never arrived.

McNutt was accompanied by a Caucasian man in his fifties or sixties at the time that he vanished. The man was balding, with gray hair and a goatee. A sketch the man is posted with this case summary.

McNutt's truck, a white 1992 Ford F-150 extended cab pickup with a gray stripe and the California license plate number 4NO4482, is also missing. The truck has a No Fear sticker in the window.

His bank card was used in Corning and in the California cities of Fort Jones, Red Bluff, and Yreka after his disappearance. Investigators believe he may be north of Corning, possibly in Oregon. McNutt is missing under suspicious circumstances and his case is unsolved.
