Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Towery was last seen in Goliad County, Texas on April 17, 2017. He left home at 7:30 a.m. to drive to work; he was a chiropractor with an office┬áin the 100 block of Mockingbird Circle in Victoria, Texas. He was sighted at a convenience store in Raisin, Texas that morning; he usually stopped there on the way to work. He never arrived at work and has never been heard from again.
His gray 2014 Ford F-150 pickup truck with the Texas license plate number HTV 2298 was found abandoned at a rural farm in southeastern Victoria County on May 7; it had been there since at least April 27. It was parked along a fence at the end of a private road, about a mile and a half from the nearest public road. The area is very remote and covered in brush. There was no sign of Towery at the scene. A photo of the truck is posted with this case summary.
Authorities believe Towery was taken against his will, and when his truck was located, they treated it as a crime scene and thoroughly examined it for evidence. Towery's personal belongings were inside the vehicle, but there was no sign of him in the vicinity. It's uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning or to miss appointments with patients at his chiropractic office.
Towery's wife filed for divorce in August 2017, four months after his disappearance. She stated she did this in order to get rights to the property she jointly owned with her husband; she could not make the mortgAge at the time of disappearance: payments on their $310,000 home. His disappearance remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2ľ5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
