Has anyone heard from Joe in a while? He does not answer his phone or emails. I've called several times, emailed him, PM'd him from several different boards.

He seems to have disappeared?
 
His user name here is dilligaf

His member profile shows his last visit to OT as 15/July/2007 at 15:26.
 
LTM has a barreled action of mine that I shipped to them on November 5 for refinishing.  I paid for the work and they charged my debit card.  Someone at LTM told me over the phone on 2/1 that my action was finished and they were shipping it back to me the following Monday, 2/4, but to date, I have never received it.  I have been calling them every day, multiple times a day for the past month, and nobody answers the phone.  I left a message a couple weeks ago, but nobody called me back.  Now, I can no longer even leave a message, because their voicemail is full.  I have emailed them -- no answer.  Needless to say, I'm quite pissed off at the moment!

Its been a while since I talked to Joe but his son was still in the rehab unit in Nebraska and he was spending as much time with him as he could. I think the rehab was in Lincon Nebraska so it quite a ways from his place. Call GA-precision in north kansas city they work with Joe on a lot of projects and they would probably know where he is now

I called GA Precision as you suggested and they said they haven't heard from Joe in several months and have no idea where he is.

Update -- still no rifle, still nobody answers the phone, and no reply to my emails & phone messages.  Have been calling every work day, multiple times per day for over a month and nobody answers the phone.
 
Any ideas?  What would you do if you were in my shoes?  Again, the last time I talked to Joe in early Feb, he told me the work was FINISHED, so it seems all that is required of him at this point is to simply ship it to me.  Loco

I too have tried calling Joe and emailing him on your behalf, Ted.
I have gotten zero results. His voice message box is so full that I can't leave a message and the email I sent him has not been replyed to either.
 
It's with a heavy heart I say to you, I'd look at legal avenues to get your rifle back. If anybody out there in cyber space reading this thread can through to Joe, please do so and have him get a hold of Ted.

Where is he located? Just thinking maybe if someone was close that maybe, some one could swing by to see if he is okay or if something majorly bad has happened.

I'm afraid I would have to agree with our new Jedi Leader. That sucks to say for sure, but when something like this happens all you can do is either let it slide or persue Legal avenues.

try checking the county clerk in his county for foreclosures and/or liens placed against the business, or the sheriffs office to see if there is an impending sale-- if this is the case you need to file a line with the sheriff or the county clerk, (this depends on the state) describing your property and evidence of the lien.

Good idea.
 
I have called the Harrisonville Police Dept., and the officer said there was little he could do because it was a civil matter, so I asked him to simply go by and check to see if Joe is o.k.  He said he would do so and call me back, but he never did.  I posted on snipershide where Joe frequents, but nobody there knows of his whereabouts.  Someone PM'ed me to say they were in the same boat and wanted to call and talk with me about it.  I haven't heard the details of this person's situation yet.
 
I hate even posting this, because I can't help but wonder if there is some unfortunate misunderstanding and a logical reason for what has happened.  I would hate to think my comments would have a negative impact on his business if some trajedy occurred that has legitimately prevented him from going to work and contacting his customers.  However, nobody seems to know of his whereabouts and none of this makes sense, so I don't know what else to do other than ask for advice and hope that someone out there reading this can help.

I wouldn't worry too much Ted about commenting on this, and it having a negative impact.  It sounds like you have been waiting a very long time with no response.  If there is a legitimate reason, he can always post his reasoning at a later date explaining his situation.

A few people on the thread at SnipersHide are eluding to the fact that they know what is going on, I PM'd them asking them for more info.  It is really starting to sound like something really bad has happened in Joe's life.

I hope that there is nothing really wrong, but atleast that would go a long ways towards explaining why this is happening. I hope that there aren't too many people in the same boat with Ted. I hope also that whatever the problem is that it isn't too serious.

Well, It doesn't take much. Anyone know Joe's Age?  I don't think Joe's the type to take the money an run.  Maybe medical problems?  He just didn't seem the type to welsh on a Job.

Duce do you know anything additional about what his son was in rehab as a result of.
I would think George at GAP would know as much as anyone. 
 
I'm in Des Moines so I'm in the general area.  I would expect Joe to keep the weapons he's working on in an alarmed vault like George does so I believe that it would be secure.  I think I would call and get a particular officer's name probably one of the detectives and ask them if the PD did a welfare check and could confirm if Joe is alive and well.  I would keep calling back talk to the same guy and see what he has to say.  Another route is to call the local better business bureau and inquire if the business still exists and see what they have to say.  Another route might be to use his address and try to determine what other business might be located near him and call them to see if they know what is going on.
