What happened to Brad Cook?

Have you seen this man? Twenty-two-year-old Brad Cook vanished from the home he shares with his sister over a week ago. He reportedly left behind his cellphone and wallet, which is indicative of a couple of things -- but none of them necessarily positive when it comes to a missing person, especially one that has been missing longer than the golden window of 48 to 72 hours.

When a missing person "leaves behind" their wallets, cellphones, money or other identifying items, it indicates that they are not intending on being gone very long. However, it could also be indicative of foul play from the beginning, but it's far too early in the case to question whether or not those who live in the home with him are being honest.

His family says it's abnormal for him to be missing like this, and it was abnormal for him to park his motorcycle unlocked in public places. Someone was seen parking his bike at a strip mall about 10 minutes after he was last seen by his family, but it's not known if it was him or not. Nobody ever returned to the bike and Brad hasn't been located.

Could Brad Cook be the victim of a homicide? It's extremely likely, being that young men are more likely to be victims of violent crime than women. He could have been part of a robbery gone wrong, or he could have been the target of random crime. He is described as being an "Eagle Scout" (former I am sure, considering he is 22), so it's hard to speculate on whether or not he would have been involved in any shady doings such as drugs or other seedy behaviors.

So for now, his disappearance is a mystery. He isn't known to be deppressed and didn't reportedly take any of his guns with him. His bank has shown no activity since his disappearance. With all of the evidence being what it is so far, it looks like this young man is dead. But where is he?
