LAFAYETTE TOWNSHIP, Ohio– He’s a husband and father of three girls. That’s why many people in this community are wondering how Bryon Macron simply disappeared just days before Christmas.

The 45-year-old’s wife told investigators she last saw him leaving their home on Ivandale Drive in Medina early Friday morning.

“He left the home. His wife did not know where he was going,” said Cpt. David Centner with the Medina County Sheriff’s Office.

The Lafayette Township trustee and self-employed wholesale jewelry salesman was seen publicly at a social function with colleagues Thursday night.

Investigators said his office was found ransacked hours before he was reported missing. His vehicle, a newer-model, black Chevrolet Equinox was abandoned in the parking lot on Beachside Boulevard in Chippewa Lake, 3 miles away from his home.

“We contacted OnStar and they located the vehicle for us. It was left pretty much the way it was in the parking lot at Chippewa Lake,” Centner said.

Neighbors who know him well said Macron is a devoted family man and former Navy SEAL who would help anyone in need.

Yellow ribbons now decorate his neighborhood in support of his safe return.

“This community is very close and we are behind him 100 percent. And we are hoping with the almighty God that we will find him and that he’ll be able to walk back home,” said a neighbor, who did not want to be identified.

Investigators told FOX 8 Macron had a scheduled meeting with a Lafayette Township resident at his office on Friday.  They said that meeting never took place.

As of now they are following up on several leads, hoping one of them leads to Macron’s whereabouts.
