According to the ex-girlfriend, Charles tried to convince her to change her mind about the breakup, but she refused, and he left her home crying at 5:00 p.m.


When she asked him where he was going, he said, "Don't worry about it." He never returned home and has never been heard from again.


Charles's disappearance remains unsolved and few details are available in his case. His family stated he wasn't the kind of person who would just disappear, he didn't have any money or extra clothes with him at the time, and he left his cherished bicycle and tape player behind.
