Details of Disappearance Laws was last seen in Asheville, North Carolina on November 22, 1980. He lived with a roommate in a trailer on Sweeten Creek Road. The day before his disappearance, he used the pay phone at the nearby Hot Spot to call his mother, and they had a normal conversation. He has never been heard from again.
