in the report it says he's been missing since thursday. his jeep and trailer have been at the ramp since the last day of duck season(january 26), 11 days ago. on the dare county sherriff's facebook page it says the last time anyone talked to him was the 26

Man thats not good. I go out alone often and never tell anybody where,when or even that I'm going-not very safe/smart. Hope its all a mistake but that don't sound good at all. Any idea where he was huntin?

Eleven days before anyone thought he was missing? :huh:

yea i was there the last few mornings and did not recognize a zodiac or that guy. but i did hear he luanched the 31 not the 26????who knows. i also heard he was a ex? navy seal??? some of the local mullet netters were out looking this morning. i am pretty sure he was not duck hunting. no one knew he was there, if he did hunt to be sure some one knew he had friends on the flats, the lumps, the cat, marsh etc. he would have had a place to go and some on would have known he was there. tragic but fishy.
becuase you leave at 2 am to hunt ducks... makes me glad we have blind laws!

i've seen the boat sitting in a yard here with decoys and stuff in it but i don't think he lived there. i think someone let him store it there. the jeep and trailer in the yard there now

Why don't you just knock on the door?

OF THE HOUSE wise guy!

Didn't you say the truck etc are at someone's house? Ask them what's up...
