FLUVANNA, VA (WWBT) - It has been five years since a Fluvanna man was last seen alive.

Robert Lee Hourihan was leaving a Palmyra grocery store on April 8, 2011, in his wife's car, according to WVIR.

The vehicle was found more than a month later in a target parking lot in Maryland, and investigators still don't know exactly how it got there.

Fluvanna Sheriff's investigators initially believed Hourihan was heading to Richmond for work and later learned he was planning to meet an acquaintance in Fluvanna, but he never made it to that meeting.

Anyone with any information regarding this case should call 434-589-8211.
