Details of Disappearance
Police say there is no evidence of foul play in Lowery's disappearance.
They think he may have gotten into a car with someone, then got into trouble
from his liver, and his companion may have panicked. Lowery's parents believe
he is deceased.
Lowery dropped off a tractor at his cousin's home on January 9, 2002, then
walked to the home he shared with his parents. His parents' home is located
on Russ Road, just off of Interstate 95. Lowery was last seen standing near
his mailbox at approximately 3:00 p.m. Three hours later, when Lowery had not returned home, his parents reported him missing.
