Sister Pleading For Help In Finding Missing Man
AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A sister is pleading for help in finding her brother who has been missing for almost six months.
Carl Robert Shull is from Casper, Wyo., but was last seen in Aurora in November of last year. Police think he may be the victim of foul play.
Shull’s sister, Deborah Bennett, says her brother wanted to get into the medical marijuana business. However it seems he had mixed results with it after moving to Colorado in January of last year.
Bennett learned his last contact was a phone call to his marijuana business partner on Nov. 27, and since then there has been nothing to show his whereabouts.
“I would say, ‘Robbie, please, please just call me, because everybody’s worried that maybe you’re dead,’ ” said Bennett.
Bennett is so worried that she came in from Missouri to look for him.
“He has not been on Facebook, he’s contacted no one,” she said.
His last Facebook post was on Nov. 27 and Bennett says he had been living in a house in Aurora with his business partner.
“They had a heated argument and he said my brother left there but my brother’s never been seen since,” she said.
Bennett did some detective work and discovered that her brother’s debit card was used at a gas station in Aurora. However, she says it wasn’t her brother using it and surveillance video proved it.
She says the next morning, Nov. 29, she traced the card to a gas station in Elise, Neb., and then another gas station in Fort Morgan. Next came a $70 meal at an Outback Steakhouse in Aurora.
On Dec. 3 Bennett says a surveillance camera at the Murphy’s Express gas station captured a man buying cigarettes and signing her brother’s name. She says the money on that debit card finally ran out on Dec. 8 when she says that same person came back to that very fist gas station in northern Aurora.
Now months later, her brother is still missing.
“It’s just as if he dropped off the earth on Thanksgiving night,” said Bennett.
Shull is 50-years-old, 5-foot-7 inches tall, 170 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He was also travelling with a blue heeler dog named “Bez.”
Anyone with information is asked to please call police.
