MP of the week: Robert Vendrick

This week’s featured missing person is Robert Lee Vendrick, a 71-year-old gentleman last seen on February 15, 2008. He is from Phoenix, Arizona but he actually disappeared from Orange County, California.

This is a murder-without-a-body disappearance. A con artist named Gary A. Shawkey had convinced Vendrick to give him $100,000 to buy into in an imaginary government computer contract, then murdered him and dumped his body in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Dana Point Harbor. Shawkey is serving a sentence of life without parole for the murder, though he maintains his innocence. His appeal was rejected in December.

MISSING from my very own neighborhood! Please help!

Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Missing since: April 1, 2014 from The Dryer, Meaghan’s House
Classification: Lost/Injured Missing
Age: 2 years old
Height and Weight: Ankle-length, one and a half ounces
Distinguishing Characteristics: Pale blue, fuzzy. Sock has large yellow and white spots. His weight is an approximation, as a postal scale was unavailable.

Details of Disappearance
Sock was laundered in the Washer at Meaghan’s House with the rest of of the bright colored clothes at 11:00 a.m. on April 1, 2014. He was last seen when transferred to the Dryer at 1:00 p.m. When the Dryer was opened and the clothes removed at 2:30 p.m., Sock was no longer there. A bathrobe belt also appeared to be missing but turned up hiding inside a sweatshirt. An extensive search of the laundry area turned up no sign of Sock. He has never been heard from again.

Sock was very close to his identical twin brother and they were never apart from each other. Sock’s twin does not believe he would have left of his own accord. Little information is available in his case, which remains unsolved.
