On July 30, 1997, 35-year-old Doug Jones was finishing up some jobs before taking a family trip that he was very much looking forward to going on. Doug was a plumber who mostly worked on his own as an independent contractor. Doug and his wife, Joellen, had plans to go to Disney World with their older child the next day, leaving their infant back home in South Carolina with Doug’s parents. Doug was spotted going about his day at jobs and stores, purchasing plumbing supplies; nothing seemed amiss. Doug never made it home from work that night. His truck was later found abandoned, not far from his home in Simpsonville, South Carolina. 24-years later, Doug’s children have grown up and are now leading the search efforts to find their father.
