NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
A father of two is missing, and even police are becoming more and more concerned about what might have happened.
Ivan Moore, 33, was last seen during the early evening hours of Jan. 13. Moore was leaving a friend's house in the 1100 block of North Second Street to walk home to his Richardson Avenue residence in East Nashville.
Moore has not reported to work or made any calls from his cell phone since that day, and police are now saying it's possible that foul play is involved.
The past month has been torture for Moore's family, who say he's a good guy and wouldn't get into trouble. Police even say the 33-year-old has a pretty clean record.
Family members gathered Friday at Metro Police headquarters as a reminder that Moore is loved and missed.
"I'm sensing, as his mother, he is near and not far. He just wouldn't walk off and disappear. He's not that troubled. He wouldn't just up and leave. I think someone is involved with this," said mother Anna Moore.
Det. Steven Jolley is suspicious as well. Right now, he doesn't have enough concrete evidence that suggests foul play, but the investigation is beginning to point that way.
"There are rumors. I'm getting anonymous tips. It's almost as if someone kidnapped him. I don't believe he's left of his own free will," Jolley said.
Family members and police say Ivan Moore was grounded in the Nashville community. He has two young children, is a graduate of Hillsboro High School and spent some time at a college in Jackson, TN.
Recently, he's been working at a moving company and has lived in his East Nashville home for more than seven years.
"I've thought outside the box, and I can't think of one thing. This not my son. It's just not him," Anna Moore said.
The man's family has been busy putting up missing posters of Ivan Moore, and friend has even taken the posters to truck stops all across the state.
Anna Moore clings to her son's last text message, which says, "Mom, I'm at your house."
She yearns for the day this message becomes reality again.
"He always checks on me. He always calls or texts, saying, 'I love you momma,'" she said.
Police said they've checked Ivan Moore's phone records, and all transmissions stopped the day he disappeared.
So far, family members believe they've put out 4,000 fliers in Nashville and across the state, but there still has been no word from Ivan Moore.
A fund has been established at Suntrust Bank so the family can raise enough money for a reward to offer for information that would lead them to their loved-one.
Visit any Suntrust branch and ask to contribute to the Ivan DeYoung Moore Benefit Fund.
Ivan Moore is 5'10" and weighs 150 pounds. Anyone who has information regarding his disappearance is urged to contact Det. Jolley at 862-7843.
