  • Details of Disappearance
    Scott was last seen walking down his street in Jacksonville, Texas on November 3, 2001. He was reported missing after he failed to show up for his first day at a new job.

    An extensive search of the area near his home provided no clues as to Scott's whereabouts. He had been unemployed for years at the time of his disappearance and thus had very little money.

    Scott resided in the Plantation Estates community off of Highway 79. His sister said that he had been assaulted by one of his neighbors on two occasions prior to his disappearance. She claims someone once pushed Scott's truck into the river while he was inside. This alleged incident was not reported to police.

    Trace amounts of blood were discovered near Scott's home, but laboratory tests determined that they did not belong to him. Authorities questioned three possible suspects in Scott's case, but there have not been any arrests due to a lack of evidence. Foul play is suspected.
