Details of Disappearance
Mayberry disappeared from Kenedy, Texas on April 1, 1999. The night before, he went out to a bar with a cousin. A man there flirted with him, and when the man found out Mayberry was a man in women's clothes, he pulled out a knife and Mayberry ran away from him and went home.

The night Mayberry disappeared, a man knocked on his door at 11:00 p.m. and asked Mayberry to go out for a beer with him. The man had a Mexican accent. Although Mayberry said he didn't know him, he left with him anyway, telling his niece he was going to the store and would be right back. Mayberry's niece said Mayberry appeared frightened and was trembling as he left.

At 2:30 a.m. the next morning, two men in a truck with a loud muffler tried to get into the house to see Mayberry. Her niece told them Mayberry wasn't home, and the men laughed. It's unclear whether they were connected to Mayberry's disappearance. He never returned home and has never been heard from again.

The man who threatened Mayberry with a knife the day before his disappearance left town immediately after Mayberry was reported missing, before he could be interviewed by police. The man has an extensive criminal history.

Mayberry's father died before his disappearance, and his mother died in 2002; he also has seven siblings, but none of his family lives in Kenedy today. Foul play is suspected in his case, which remains unsolved.
