disappeared

A local man who went missing last year will be the feature of an upcoming episode of “Disappeared.”

NBC/Peacock Productions, affiliated with the Investigation Discovery channel, have produced a television episode about the case of Michael ChambersChambers, 70, was reportedly last seen March 10 of 2017 on a surveillance camera in the Quinlan Wal-Mart. Officials believe he disappeared from a home in the 7000 block of FM 2101.

Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks said executives with NBC contacted the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office several months ago, stating they wanted to produce an episode surrounding the circumstances of the disappearance of Chambers for the television show “Disappeared.”

“Disappeared” is a true crime series and has been on the air for eight years. The focal point of the show is to highlight known missing person cases, with the hope of generating more leads for local law enforcement agencies. The production team has worked the past week shooting scenes in Hunt County that were recreated based on information shared by the sheriff’s office, family and friends of Chambers.

“I am grateful that NBC has shown an interest in the case,” Meeks said. “They are helping to keep this case in the news. I feel confident that the final product will cover many different aspects of this case and will hopefully lead to new tips coming in.”

Anyone with information is urged to call the sheriff’s department at 903-453-6809. No air date for the episode has yet been released. This story will be updated when one becomes available.
