On Friday, November 27, 1992, the day after Thanksgiving, Paul Raymond Harrod left his home near Sheridan, IN and has not been seen or heard from since that date. Harrod left a $100 bill and a note for his wife stating he “needed to get away for a while.” He left in his 1992 white Geo Metro 2-door hatchback but left no indication where he was going or when he might return.
On Friday, May 7, 1993, Harrod’s wife filed a missing person report with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.
There has been little information to use as detectives try to track down Harrod’s location. Over the years, investigators have uncovered bits and pieces including:
- The Geo Metro was sold in Denver, Colorado in 1994
-Harrod’s Social Security number was not issued to him until 1987
- The high school Harrod listed as attending has no record of a person by that name ever being there
- A Paul Raymond Harrod with the same parents’ names and date of birth was killed by a car when he was five (5) years old. The death occurred in Harrod, Ohio.
- Detectives believe Harrod may now be in his 70’s but an exact age may not be available
Investigators working the case recently received photos of Harrod. The tuxedo photo is of Paul on his wedding day and the individual photo of Harrod was taken on Thanksgiving Day in 1992, the day prior to Harrod’s disappearance. (see larger size photos from this case at the bottom of this page)
