GLENNVILLE, GA (WTOC) - Cory Dasher choked back tears of worry Monday as she talked about Justin Shafer, her missing boyfriend. He left work Friday December 3 and hasn't been seen since.
"The last words he said to anyone was that he was heading home which was only ten minutes away. Never showed up," she said.
She's afraid that his disappearance is more than just a domestic breakup. Cory said they were planning for a future.
"We found out the week of Thanksgiving that we're going to have a little girl," she said in a voice thick with emotion. "He was very excited. He would not just leave."
If he did, he left almost everything he had behind.
"He has none of his belongings, none of his clothes, no food. No anything," Cory noted.
"He was last seen driving a late 90's Ford Ranger pickup when he left his job site on Stoney Hill Church Road," noted Lt. Wes Kicklighter of the Glennville Police Department. Kicklighter said the truck carried a Georgia license plate "AZZ 0026".
The unusually cold weather has Dasher and police concerned. Shafer disappeared with no coat and a truck with no heat.
"I just want a phone call from somebody who's seen him, someone who may know where he may be," Dasher implored.
For now, she has to hope he's somewhere of his own free will, no matter how painful that is.
Anyone who has seen Shafer or his Ford Ranger pickup is asked to call Glennville Police at 912.654.2103.
