  • Details of Disappearance
    Cole was last seen on July 13, 2006 near FM 1645 and CR 4230 just south of Timpson, Texas. He had told his wife that he was going to Whataburger for a bite to eat.

    His vehicle, described as a silver 2003 Dodge half ton pickup truck, was located on July 15, 2006 in Shelby County, Texas. He had run into a fence and told the owner that he was sorry and would be back to fix it but he had to first get away from some bad people that were following him. When police located the truck, the driver's side door was open and there was no sign of a struggle.

    Cole's two inhalers for his asthma were left behind in his truck, as were his shoes with his wedding band tucked inside. Witnesses claim that Cole was not in a sound state of mind the day he disappeared. He was anticipating the birth of his first child in October 2006.

    He was reported missing by family members on August 11, 2006.
