On May 3, 2006, 45-year-old Thomas Profitt disappeared from Winchester, Kentucky. He had told his daughter, Amanda, that he was going to come visit her and his newborn granddaughter in the hospital. Thomas never made it to the hospital and was never seen or heard from again. His maroon 1997 Buick Century went missing that day along with Thomas and has never been located. Thomas was known to be a family man and had told several people how excited he was to go meet his new granddaughter. The baby had arrived about 14 weeks early, and he was so relieved that she was born healthy. His case took a strange twist when his wife told police a completely different story. She said he left saying he was going to the river and she would never see him again. We spoke to Thomas’s two daughters, Amanda and Jeanie, for this episode as well as his sister, Darlene and the detective working his case.
