Hofert reportedly disappeared from behind his home at around 10:30 p.m. on Feb. 2. Police have ruled out foul play, according to a local TV station, but are zeroing in on a set of footprints that stopped at a local river, raising suspicion that he slipped and drowned. A subsequent Coast Guard search did not find any trace of the missing man.
