Butler police still searching for man who has been missing for two weeks
(10/10/04) BUTLER - Butler police are conducting a missing person's investigation into the disappearance of 25-year-old Tim Carney, who vanished two weeks ago.
It is believed that Carney's boss at the Elizabeth unemployment office was the last person to hear from him on the morning of September 27. He apparently called to say he would be late. Carney was supposed to attend a prayer meeting that morning before work.
Carney's parents believe his disappearance could be linked to that church group. They say he gave a great deal of money to the group and, as a result, was in heavy debt.
The only break so far in the investigation is that cops found Carney's wallet in the parking lot of the Lyndhurst Diner, but there was no sign of him or his car. He was driving a green Chrysler Concord the morning he disappeared with license plate JTC-88N. The family and Butler police ask anyone with information on Tim Carney's whereabouts to call the police at (973) 838-4100.
