  • Details of Disappearance
    Thompkins was working in a wooded area near County Line Road off of Warm Springs Road in Harris County, Georgia on January 25, 2002. He was accompanied by three co-workers, all of whom worked approximately 50 feet from one another. One of the employees looked away from Thompkins for a moment; by the time he glanced at his area again, Thompkins had disappeared.

    Volunteers searched the area shortly after Thompkins's disappearance. One of his boots was located, as was a piece of blue fiber on a nearby barb wire fence. Twelve cents was discovered near Thompkins' tools. Tompkins's other boot was located in July 2002, five months after his disappearance, in an unknown location. There was no other evidence leading to his whereabouts.

    Thompkins resided in Ellerslie, Georgia in early 2002.
