Missing Fayetteville Man Found
A Fayetteville man missing since Friday has been found, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office announced Wednesday.
Philip Hall, 39, was last seen Friday, June 29, at a business in Tontitown, according to Kelly Cantrell with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigators did not believe the disappearance was suspicious.
A press release from Cantrell on Wednesday evening said Hall has been located safe, and no other information will be available.
Detectives were searching Monday at Rescon Restoration Contractors at 17062 Harmon, after getting a search warrant. Hall is part owner of the business and also lived there, neighbors said.
“They waited most of the day to get permission to go in and inspect the building,” Betty Galloway, who lives in front of the business, said Monday.
Galloway said a friend of the missing man knocked on her door and handed her a flyer with a description of Philip Hall.
His friend was worried since Hall was going through a tough situation, she said.
“The man that’s missing him and his wife were involved in a divorce. He was very depressed,” Galloway said.
The sheriff’s office made media announcements this week and disseminated Hall’s description.
They also asked the public to look for Hall’s older-model, tan, GMC pickup, with Arkansas license plate 382PRE. The truck has an “Oklahoma State University” sticker on the back window.
