YUKON, Okla. -- Chad Georgia, a member of the Army National Guard, disappeared on his way to work Saturday and hasn't been seen or heard from since.

The 21-year-old college student could be a victim of foul play, his family said.

"He stuck his head in my mom's shower to tell her that he was leaving and that he will see her later," Chad's sister Keri Clevenger said.

Georgia, who worked with special needs patients, was planning to take one of the patients to a movie around 5:15 p.m. Saturday, but he never showed.

"He doesn't run off," Clevenger said. "Everybody thinks because he's 21, that he runs off and parties, but he really doesn't do that."

By Monday, no one had heard from Georgia so the family filed a police report. Clevenger said she fears someone may have kidnapped her brother.

"He wouldn't just leave by himself," Clevenger said. "It wouldn't be on his own accord he would leave."

Clevenger thinks someone may have wanted his truck, a 1981 yellow and white GMC Jimmy, but police have no evidence that the young man has been abducted or carjacked.

"We believe that he is a good kid in good standing," said Klare Ly of the Yukon PD. "It's possible that there is foul play, but we don't have any evidence to show that he is."

Georgia left his cell phone behind, but took his computer with him. The family has been checking his e-mails, but there has been no activity.

"Help him get home," Clevenger said. "Let us know where he is."

Georgia took his wallet with him. Police are trying to get access to his bank accounts to see if there have been any transactions. The bank is not releasing the information, so police may have to subpoena the bank to get the records.
