Missing Person Texas James Tidwell

James Tidwell, 58, from Mt Enterprise in Rusk County Texas, was last seen on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 at about 7 a.m. when he clocked out of work at Flandres Electric in Longview.  He worked the overnight shift and left at 5:30 a.m.  He told his employer he would come back later that afternoon, but he never showed up.   

Tidwell’s wife, Carol Tidwell, who lived in a cabin with Jimmy told investigators she hadn’t seen her husband since Feb. 24, 2012.

“Flander called Jimmy’s house and talked to Carol, Jimmy’s wife,” Lynn Akin, James’ sister told East Texas Matters. “She told him he had been up working on taxes all night. She said she would not wake him up and would refuse to do so.”
According to records, a week went by without Tidwell Jr., showing up for work.  Finally, his employer called the police for a welfare check.  Jimmy’s truck was found on FM95 and Hwy 315 about 5 miles from his home.

If you have any information about his whereabouts, please contact the Rusk County Sheriff’s Office at 903-657-3581.

Crime Stoppers, Flanders Electric and family members on Thursday announced a $5,000 reward for any information about James Tidwell’s disappearance.
