The day before his disappearance he was having dinner with co-workers. They reported that he appeared agitated and had an animated phone call with his wife Angela. The next morning he went for a walk around 9:30 am. His mother’s brother-in-law’s nephew tried to call Chris but his phone was turned off. His wife Angela also tried to reach him several times that day. 

No one has seen or spoken to Chris since the morning of August 13, 2017. Chris’s mother Sandy Sanders has been desperately trying to find her son. This episode features an interview with Sandy.

She describes her son as the life of the party, people-oriented, and dependable. He was dedicated to taking care of his family and his kids were everything to him. Sandy shared that Chris was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder and had been taking medication for it. She suspects he may have stopped taking his medication prior to his disappearance.
