Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Osborne was last seen at the the Weddington Branch Plaza in Coal Run, Kentucky on March 2, 2006. He called his daughter at 11:00 a.m. and said he had withdrawn money from his bank account and planned to make a bid at a land auction. He had a $20,000 cashier's check, and probably also withdrew a substantial amount of cash from his account. He has never been heard from again.
Osborne's Ford F-150 truck was found in the plaza's parking lot, near a Chinese restaurant, on March 6. There were no indications of a struggle at the scene. Investigators don't believe Osborne drove his vehicle to the plaza himself.
Authorities believe Osborne may have met with foul play. One of his friends stated he picked Osborne up at the plaza and drove him to meet an unknown individual, but this friend has changed his story repeatedly and hasn't cooperated with the investigation.
It is uncharacteristic of Osborne to leave without warning. He formerly lived in Michigan, where he worked for the Ford Motor Company. After his retirement he moved to Virgie, Kentucky. 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.
