Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Rogers was last seen in Liberty, Texas on December 30, 2011. He spoke to his brother and his son on the phone at 11:40 p.m., asking if they'd like to go with him to the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) hall. They said no. Rogers was last seen leaving the VFW hall. He has never been heard from again.
The next day, Rogers's stepson and his wife saw Rogers's green 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee on the side of Texas 231 near County Road 2243, between Cleveland and Tarkington Prairie. They didn't think of it at the time, but as days passed and the Jeep remained in the same location, his stepson became concerned and spoke to his mother about it.
Rogers's wife went to the Jeep and put a rock under the tire to see if it was moved. She found his cellular phone and medication inside it. His stepdaughter reported him missing on January 6.
At the time of his disappearance, Rogers was separated from his wife and they were arguing. Because of issues with his feet stemming from his military service in the Vietnam War, his family doesn't think he could have left on foot. The Jeep was his only method of transportation. It's completely uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning and his case 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 2–5% 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.
