Details of Disappearance Akers was last seen in Union, Missouri on December 11, 1988. He left home at 11:30 p.m. to borrow a chainsaw from a neighbor so he could cut wood for his family's wood stove. At midnight, he bought a six-pack of beer at Mom's Hilltop Tavern in Grubville, Missouri. He never returned home and has never been heard from again.
At 8:00 a.m. on December 12, Akers's wife of eleven years found his black Jeep abandoned just off Route FF at the entrance to the subdivision where they lived with their four children. Four cans of beer were inside the vehicle, and the keys were hidden above the sun visor. A search of the area turned up no signs of violence and no indication of Akers's whereabouts.

His brother and sister-in-law think he's no longer alive. His case remains unsolved.
