According to officials, on Wednesday, April 20, a jeep belonging to a Texan was found, missing for more than two weeks.
The jeep, which was registered to Robert Molds, was found around 8:45 a.m. on April 20 by a disabled firefighter who was assisting in the search for Molds, who was last heard of on April 4, said Sheriff Lane Akin of the Wise County Sheriff’s Office in Decatur, Texas. Decatur is located about 40 miles north of Fort Worth.
The jeep was found in a bush about 4 miles west of Decatur, Akin wrote in an email to McClatchy News. Authorities believe the body belonged to Mulds.
Community members have rallied to find Molds since he went missing in early April, creating a Facebook group and the GoFundMe page.
In the Facebook group, which has 3,300 members, people posted information about the last known location of Molds, as well as support for his family.
On April 20, after authorities found the jeep, community members began posting comments about Molds and what it meant to them.
“I worked with Robert many years ago, and I was lucky enough to talk to him on the phone at my job a few months ago,” Karen Kinler-Singleton wrote. “He was always so kind and friendly to everyone who knew him.”
Some of the writers did not know him personally, but joined the search.
“Mr. Molds, most of us never knew you, except you were missing!” wrote Carrie Baran. “We shared and searched far because you are important. The news is not what we wanted to hear, but it closes a lot. “
