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.

    Ha ha, very funny. Try the dryer filter/vent. Or the drum of the washer, inside the big rubbery thing that surrounds it.

    LOL! Saw your title on FB but did not click on. Came over to Charley to read about it. I thought, Oh, No! I wonder if the missing is a little boy or girl? You got me. I love it!

    Oh poor Mr. Sock,

    As in most cases people think of missing socks in the singular. They are sad for the sock and his/her family but rarely do they look deep into the problem.

    In truth for every missing sock, and there are thousands of them, hundreds of lives will never be the same. From the laundry owner who posts there missing flyer by their desk, to the reporters who cover the story, to countless friends and family who profoundly miss them but never find the answers they seek, nothing is ever the same.

    This sadly is the truth, not only for socks who go missing on April 1st but for missing people all year long.

      Don’t forget the socks left behind. I have a sad pile of single socks sitting on top of my dryer waiting to be reunited with their twins. Some have been waiting for nearly a year. A sock’s life becomes meaningless without its mate.

    Check inside pillowcases and pant legs. That’s where my socks seem to end up!

    Ha! Loved it. A bit of a break before all the gloom and doom of real life comes in. Thanks for the laugh :).
