Disappeared on ID is investigating the case of Christopher Hoye, who suddenly vanished from his home near Dixon, Missouri, in 2022.
On May 20, 2022, 33-year-old Christopher left his wife and son for no apparent reason and has not been seen since.
His wife, Alysha Hoye, said she heard him leave the house, and when she asked their son where Christopher had gone, he said he didn’t know. The son said his dad had told him to go to his room just before he left.
Alysha later told the local press that she knew instantly something was wrong. She had a friend come over so she could look for her husband. She went down to the river, where she found Christopher’s truck with the keys still inside.
She searched the river and woods, and the police would also perform a thorough search a short time later. But there was no sign of Christopher.
The circumstances of his disappearance are particularly unsettling because he left the house without his wallet, phone, or any other personal belongings.
Christopher Hoye was not thought to be suicidal when he vanished
Alysha is distraught at not knowing what happened to her husband; she said, “I don’t think he was suicidal. I don’t think he killed himself. But I don’t know. And that not knowing is what was killing me.”Watch the Latest on our YouTube Channel
She says she’s “lost” without her husband and spends much of her time searching the woods for him. She added, “I feel like he’s alive. And then, if more people knew he was missing, it would bring him home.”
Detective Paul Morton with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s still hopes he will “pop up somewhere” and has found no evidence of foul play.
Morton also told the local press, “We have gotten a few small tips, but nothing has led to anything profound.”
Cops issued detailed description of the missing Christopher Hoye
Christopher was described as a white male, 5′ 6″ to 5′ 7″ tall, weighing about 175 lbs. He had brown shaggy hair, about 3-5 inches long, with a high forehead and thinning in spots. He also had a thick, brown, full beard and mustache.
He has multiple scars on both forearms, hands, and knuckles, and above his left eyebrow. On his disappearance, Christopher was wearing gym shorts, a light-colored t-shirt, a black ballcap, and black sneakers.
