Circumstances of Disappearance
The day before he went missing, Stump spoke with his mother on the telephone. He had just rented a van to take his wife and their two daughters on a vacation trip. He said he would call her as soon as they got back from their trip.
That evening, the couple took the girls and two of their friends out to dinner to celebrate their daughters eight birthday. The next morning, Stump put gas in the van and went to the bank and to the post office in preparation for the trip.
About 16:30 that afternoon, one of the daughters phoned her grandmother to tell her that they thought her dad had committed suicide.
At 19:30 the wife contacted the Hertz car rental office and told them she needed a new set of keys, because her husband had lost the first set while swimming in a canal. She was told to call back the next day. In her second call, she said the keys were lost when her husband went out in a boat and committed suicide. At 19:53, she told another individual at the rental agency that she thought her husband had drowned himself in the ocean.
Stump has not been seen again.
The families of Thomas Stump and Diana Lynn Harris believe the cases are connected.
