    While searching, I found his name to be associated with an AKA Linn, Allen Snyder that goes by Linn, Allen. The same source showed a current address of 2221 S Indiana Ave., Joplin, MO. since March 2016. It also showed a past address and AKA matching Snyder, Linn Allen – 21950 Green Valley Ave., Council Bluffs, IA.

    Associated persons listed on the site (also listing Linn’s former Council Bluffs address) were a Snyder, Jimmie Wayne and Snyder, Amy Neomi (married) belonging to the same address 2221 S Indiana Ave., Joplin, MO. since 2008, which I verified on the Jasper County Missouri Beacon site.

    I completed a search of Snyder, Amy N on Spokeo which returned to a female in her 70s living in Joplin, MO. Under the “Family Members” section read “Amy resides in a single family home in Joplin, Missouri with Jimmie.” as well as “Amy and Linn Snyder reside together in a single family home in Joplin, Missouri.”

    I guess I don’t know the source is just associating Linn with the address in Missouri, but I found it odd that Jimmie and Amy belonged to the address starting in 2008, while Linn starting in 2016 – and maybe something to look further into.

    I think the key here is the wallet.
    Either he didn’t think he would need it for a short drive, or more probably, he forgot it when he decided to go to a specific place.
    Then there is the 3rd consideration of kidnapping/robbery.
    From the limited information provided I would speculate that he went for gas. The realization of forgetting his wallet is what set whatever scenario in motion. I would have first questioned the nearest gas stations.
    I picture him asking for cash from someone and getting rolled or taken advantage of.
    It would help if we knew what time of day he left and if his home was locked up.

    The second question is whether the motorcycle has been found. Maybe, somene wanted the motorcycle in the worst way, so they got rid of him. Maybe, he missed a turn and drove into a body of water. We have a few cases of people who have driven into various lakesm rivers and canals around the country.

    in my neck of the woods, a woman was murdered by her husband. Her body was recovered from the trunk of her car. The car ws dumped into the Calumet Sag Canal, in the South Suburbs of Chicago. Her husband was a Mob lawyer.

    We have no information to show if he had any family. Did, he ride his motorycle a lot. If so, did he have a certain area, who route he took. Also, was his cell phone ever pinged by law enforcement. Also, did they review his phone records to see who he normally talked to.

  5. If his wallet and his medication were left at home he obviously wasn’t expecting to be gone for very long. Just a short motorcycle ride and while on that ride he just somehow disappeared. I wonder what happened to him.
