Worth County-- The Georgia Bureau of Investigation continues their investigation into the mysterious disappearance of a Worth County man. 33-year-old Richard Bentley disappeared more than a week ago. Both his wife and stepson are in jail on drug charges and investigators spent hours at the family home looking for evidence.
A neighborhood is left wondering. Crime tape slips between trees along Flint Lane as kids play in the background, right next door to a mystery.
"I'm thinking something went wrong over there. Something had to happen," said neighbor Angela Rector.
Neighbors are wondering exactly what happened to Richard Bentley. They join his family. They've been wondering and searching for days.
"Can't find him anywhere. Still haven't heard from him," said Bentley's mother Pat Hobensack.
A helicopter circled the air in Worth County. On the ground, GBI agents and search dogs looked through the wooded area behind his home. Neighbor Angela Rector says she's seen suspicious cars and behavior over the last week or so.
"It's just not right and It's scary. It really is," said Rector.
It's a scary disappearance. Although family and neighbors are concerned about that disappearance and crime scene tape still surrounds the home, GBI hasn't declared foul play.
"We're still investigating this as a missing persons case," said GBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Kim Baker.
Agents did remove several large and small bags of evidence from the house. They say they'll continue to search the area for Bentley. His family still has questions about what led to his disappearance.
"At this point I don't know what to think. He's never done this before," said Hobensack. His mother says the truck driver never missed making a load delivery. His rig has sat in the same spot for days. Today, his company finally removed it.
"It's just strange not seeing him. I'm so used to seeing him over there with his truck," said Rector.
Everyone hopes to see him behind the wheel again soon. "I do hope for the best and God speed," said Rector.
"We still have hope," said Bentley's sister Mary Handzcik.
They hope to soon see a happy answer to this Worth County mystery.
