    His wife saw him walk out their door and get into an unfamiliar car, leaving all personal items behind. He hasn't been seen since. Yes, he's older but this took place in the Anthem area and only 2.3 miles from where Steven's car was found. [Map] Oddly, this disappearance took place about .6 mile from a property owned by someone who also owns property on Evening Lights.
