    This is a interesting twist on the "couple has argument, wife storms out and disappears forever" that we've seen in the past. Add to that the Lyndi DiSanto (Nancy Grace wannabe) angle and it becomes interesting indeed. And it's a good illustration of why MDS has long had a "don't contact the victim's family and friends rule"

    Law enforcement receives new tips about missing Moorcroft man; reward money increased

    The reward for a Moorcroft man who has been missing for more than two years has been raised to $12,000, thanks to a recent donation, while Nebraska authorities continue their investigation into his disappearance.

    Chance Englebert, then 25, disappeared July 6, 2019, during a weekend trip with his wife and young son to visit her family in Gering, Nebraska.

    It’s unclear what transpired that day, but Englebert had been golfing with his father-in-law and other members of his wife’s family and reportedly got into an argument over the new job that he’d recently accepted after being laid off from a coal mine.

    Englebert called his wife to come get him and told her he wanted to return home to Wyoming. When his wife refused to leave, he called a friend to come get him but the friend was not able to make the drive, so Englebert allegedly started walking toward Torrington.

    He was last spotted on surveillance footage walking in downtown Gering on the 700 block of O Street, wearing Wrangler jeans, a plaid shirt and a trucker’s cap.

    The last text message from his phone was sent just after 9 p.m. that day and contained an incomprehensible jumble of numbers and emojis, according to his mom Dawn, who questions whether someone else had his phone as he never used emojis.

    Despite a massive search involving 17 agencies, drones, divers, cadaver dogs and hundreds of volunteers on foot, horseback and ATVs – as well as several searches led by friends over the past two years between Gering and Torrington – Englebert remains missing.

    Gering Police continue to receive tips and conduct interviews, including one Tuesday morning, according to Brian Eads, lead investigator on the case, who was with the Nebraska State Highway Patrol at the time of Englebert’s disappearance.

    The case is still active and there are no updates to share, Eads said in an email to Cowboy State Daily Tuesday. He would not comment on whether the department has identified any solid clues or persons of interest, saying the investigation is ongoing.

    I'd feel so horrible if I was one of the ones who couldn't pick him up. The what-ifs would be endless for me.

    Melbeta man setting up goose blind finds human arm bone near North Platte River

    A Melbeta man setting up a goose blind located parts of a human body, which is now being evaluated by a state DNA lab.

    Scotts Bluff County Chief Deputy Troy Brown said the man made the discovery Oct. 18 near the North Platte River on property between Minatare and Melbeta.

    Brown said that the hunter found part of a lower arm bone and a piece of cloth. The bone and cloth were located within 100 feet of each other. Forensic pathologists did confirm that the arm is human, he said, and bone marrow was extracted from the arm. From the bone marrow, a DNA sample will be taken and compared with DNA available in missing persons cases locally.

    “It could be anywhere from two weeks to a couple months,” Brown said of getting the results. “It depends on how busy they are at the lab.”

    Two cases have possible ties to the North Platte River, Brown said, and DNA comparisons will be made with material collected in those cases.

    One is Chance Englebert, 25, of Moorcroft, Wyoming, who had been reported missing after he left a Gering residence on July 6. Englebert had been staying at the home of a relative of his wife and had been captured on video walking past two businesses in Gering and an apartment in Terrytown. The last video of the man shows him walking in the area of the intersection of Terry Boulevard and Stable Club Road in Terrytown, which would not be far from the North Platte River Bridge. The location of his last cellphone activity pinged a tower near Riverview Golf Course, just west of Scottsbluff and also near the North Platte River.
