Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Henry was last seen with his wife, Kristie Wilson, in Monterey, Tennessee at 8:00 p.m. on May 9, 2018. Henry picked his wife up from her aunt's house at 8:00 p.m. Later that night, they stopped at Tom's Market to buy cigarettes. This is the last time anyone is known to have seen them. They were driving a charcoal-gray 2001 Nissan Sentra, which had sun-damAge at the time of disappearance: d paint, damAge at the time of disappearance: to the rear bumper, bad tires, and the Tennessee license plate number 310DVD. Neither of them has ever been heard from again.
The morning after the Wilsons were last seen, Henry's cellular phone pinged off at tower in Fentress County. Kristie's phone pinged later in Overton County, in the Coy Phillips Road area. An extensive search turned up no sign of them. Police stated that although their marriAge at the time of disappearance: had been troubled, there was no evidence that one of them had harmed the other.
In September 2018, their car was found at the bottom of a ravine off Hanging Limb Highway in Overton County, Tennessee, thirty miles from Monterey. It had been there so long that there were plants growing in it. There was no sign of Kristie or Henry, however.
Kristie's family stated the couple was poor; Kristie was collecting disability benefits and Henry was a day laborer. Although he had a drug problem, his daughter described him as a "great dad" and neither of them had ever gone more than a few days without contact with their families. Kristie left a disability check behind in the mailbox at her home. Her family stated she was planning on returning to work soon.
The Wilsons' families hired a private detective after their disappearance, and the detective believes the couple was killed in a drug deal gone bad. Henry supposedly got into a fight with a suspect over a drug deal and was shot by the suspect, and a second person shot Kristie after she started screaming. This has not been proven.
No suspects have been named in Henry and Kristie's disappearances, but foul play is suspected in their cases.

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.
