HAMLIN TOWNSHIP — The Mason County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation into the disappearance of Hamlin Grocery owner Vaughn Flewelling.

Deputies found the license plate to the 47-year-old’s 2006 Lincoln Town Car at his Victory Township residence. Sheriff Kim Cole said it is possible Flewelling changed the plates himself.

The sheriff said that there has been no activities on Flewelling’s credit cards nor has he made any hotel or flight reservations in his name.

He was last seen letting an employee out of the store at 10 p.m. Sunday. He locked the door and continued to work in the store. He failed to show up to open the store at 6 a.m. Monday and neither Flewelling nor his vehicle have been seen since.

Flewelling is described as a 47-year-old white male, born Sept. 11, 1968, 240 pounds with hazel eyes and thinning hair. He was last known to drive a 2006 Lincoln Town Car tan/cream in color.

“At this point Mr. Flewelling is listed as a ‘voluntary missing’ person out of the Mason County Sheriff’s Office,” Cole said. MCSO detectives continue to investigate.

Nearly 100 people showed up for a late night prayer vigil at Hamlin Grocery Monday night.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
