STATESVILLE, NC - "We're numb. And just confused. And we don't understand why this has happened," explains Lindsey Stikeleather's daughter Lisa Eidson.
Family and friends of the missing 88-year-old man gathering at his Statesville home.. hoping for word about him.
"In our hearts and minds we just start wondering. You're mind just starts wandering from you anyway.. Where's he at? What's he doing?" asks son-in-law Randy Dellinger.
Monday, the 88-year-old great grandfather had gone to collect past-due rent.
Family members say his tenant called to say his moped broke down... and Stikeleather went to help.
He was last seen at a bank that afternoon.
Then Tuesday.. investigators say his abandoned truck was found at the corner of Lamb and Lewis Ferry roads.
Wednesday afternoon police circled the area on the ground and by air.
