Douthat was last seen on October 25, 2013. He cashed his paycheck at a Kroger grocery store in Vinton, Virginia at 3:30 p.m., and a friend dropped him off at Chap's Tavern in the 800 block of Campbell Avenue in Roanoke, Virginia at 4:30 p.m. He was supposed to meet another friend in the parking lot of the Food Lion grocery store at 5:00 p.m., but he wasn't there when his friend arrived. Other patrons from Chap's Tavern recalled that he stayed at the bar until 8:00 p.m. and left on foot. He wasn't reported missing for almost two weeks. Since his disappearance, there has been no activity on his bank account.
In February 2013, nine months before Douthat's disappearance, he and his live-in girlfriend, who was pregnant at the time, were assaulted by an acquaintance who broke into their Kingston Road home with his brother. Douthat and his girlfriend sustained cuts and bruises in the attack. Both assailants were later charged in connection with the attack and both were found guilty.
Authorities don't believe Douthat's disappearance is related to the earlier crime, but he is considered to be missing under suspicious circumstances. His loved ones stated he was dealing with personal problems at the time of his disappearance, but they don't think he would have abandoned his family. His case opened 2018 by Psychic Brian Ladd.
