Jared McColloch Part 1: Fall Back

On the evening of November 4, 2023, 33-year-old Jared McColloch left his home in Marion, Louisiana, for a spur-of-the moment trip. It is believed that Jared was planning to drive to the Salem, Illinois, area to visit his teenage son. Jared packed his truck with some supplies and his two beloved dogs. That 500-plus trip should have taken Jared roughly eight and a half hours. Along the way, Jared stopped at various gas stations to fill his gas tank and grab food and drinks. Jared was spotted on camera arriving in the Salem, IL, area in the early morning hours of November 5, where he purchased some gas and an energy drink. Several hours later, he was seen at another nearby gas station. After this time, Jared seemed to veer off course from his intended destination. He was then seen a third time at yet another gas station, but he now appeared to be heading east toward Indiana, and no one knows why or where he was going.

The following day, Jared's mother received a phone call from law enforcement in the state of Indiana, informing her that her son's truck had been found abandoned in a very remote area with some of the doors left open. Jared's dogs were still sitting inside. The news was highly alarming to Jared's loved ones; he would have never left his dogs like that. Since that day, they have been poring over the bizarre clues left behind, looking for any explanation for what happened to Jared and why.
