Missing Man

TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - An East Texas family is asking for the public’s help with finding their son.

21-year-old Corbin Stiefer was last seen on Wednesday in Tyler. He left home without his phone, ID, and medication.

“We are just baffled at where our son could be,” Corbin’s mother, Carys, said. “My 21-year-old son was headed to an appointment Wednesday morning during the rain and he left our house in south Tyler about 11:40 and I have not seen or heard from him since. He forgot his phone and his ID and his wallet.”

Corbin’s family says this behavior is unusual for him. He has been at home in Tyler since leaving Abilene Christian University in October due to an illness.

“He’s such a wonderful young man. He’s well loved by this family, well loved by his friends,” Corbin’s grandfather said.

Corbin’s mother says the illness, that requires medication, has been weighing on him.

“He has been down about his illness and he’s lost quite a bit of weight and hasn’t been feeling good,” Corbin’s mother said.

With no leads or clues as to where he could be, the family has started searching themselves.

“We’ve checked, you know, hotel parking lots, parks, around the lake, just things of that nature. We’re just asking people to reach out and just continue looking as they’re out about in the city,” Corbin’s sister, Darcy, said.

The family says they’ve received an outpouring of support and prayers from the community and they hope for some good news soon.

“He is my best friend in the world and we just hope he gets home safe,” Corbin’s sister said.

Corbin is five foot seven and 108 pounds. He has short brown hair with a patchy beard. He is driving a red 2014 Mazda 6 with a Texas license plate GXB-1645.
