The establishment is off of Exit 74-B along Interstate 81. Witnesses told authorities that Matney made a call from the bar's pay phone, then sat inside his truck in the parking lot.

    Matney's vehicle was discovered abandoned in the bar's parking lot five days afterwards. His checkbook was inside his truck, but there was no other evidence at the scene. There has not been any activity on Matney's bank account since April 2002. Authorities believe that Matney may have departed from the bar with an acquaintance.
