Lenexa father still missing as daughter’s wedding nears

— The search continues for a 58-year-old Lenexa man who has been missing since he didn't show up to take his son to a dental appointment on Thursday.

The Kansas City Star reports Larry Schnackenberg's SUV was found that evening in Shawnee Mission Park with his keys, cell phone and wallet in the unlocked vehicle.

His family says he was excited about his daughter's wedding, which is Saturday, and he had spent the previous night writing the toast he planned to give.

The retired Hallmark Cards employee was last seen leaving a computer store around 1 p.m. Thursday. By 3 p.m., family members couldn't reach him after he didn't pick up his youngest son.

Family members are sure foul play is involved, but Lenexa police say there is no evidence of any crime.

If they're wanting help finding the guy why wouldn't they post a picture?

Definitely something strange going on here. There may be no evidence of a crime, but whenever there's someone missing surrounded by odd circumstance the police should probably find their thinking caps. Really bizarre though, doesn't look like a robbery, a suicide or a planned disappearance.

I hope that everything turns out okay.

you don't think they AREN'T "putting on their thinking caps" about this case? What evidence do you have that the Overland Park Police Department in being at all derelict in their efforts? You'd better be able to produce evidence they are. No I don't know what's going on either, but I am sure they've got some sort of surveillence of his bank account, ect. The story indicates the wallet was there, but why would the police let on that anything is missing? Please give police credit for doing their jobs under difficult circumstances and now, a laser-beam round of Monday morning quarterbacking.

Would have been nice to have in the article if the wallet still had any money and credit cards in it. I guess all this information will all float up in a few more days. Saturday is not going to be a good weading day.

Information provided merely to satisfy the curiosity of the public could compromise an investigation.

Very sad that the wedding has to be postponed for this mystery.

I wonder if he checked out mentally, or just decided to get off the grid.
