Worried Trucker Wife

by Antigone Homer
(Salt Lake City, Utah USA)

My husband is a truck drive for Fed-Ex Ground and, I have not heard from him, for over 12 weeks . I am so worried something has happened to him.

I will text him everyday and night telling him I love him and Miss him. He has a cell phone and we have been communicating through different ways. Like Facebook, KIK, Line and Skype. I was texting him one day and his Co Driver was driving and the next thing I know he disappears from everything.

We have been married for a year and 6 months. Am I over reacting? We have 3 kids and all of them ask me where daddy is. I'm trying to stay strong, but I cant help but cry at night because I miss him so much. How do I keep in contact with him and know where he is at?

He became a trucker about 3 months ago. I keep hearing stories about semi rollovers and I can't help but to think is that my husband? I have no idea what I have gotten myself into. I promised him I would support him and hold down the house until he gets back. I can't do this anymore.

I told him I would support him, but I have no idea if I can do it anymore, I feel like he has forgot about us. I wish I could hear his voice and know that he is okay. I am not religious but I pray to get comfort and strength to keep my family together.

Advice from a Dispatcher NEW
by: Anonymous

Contact your husbands boss. If you don't have that number contact the local office and tell them what is going on and ask them for help. Ask someone from the office he dispatches from if they have actually spoke with him. Ask them to call him right away. The dispatcher should help you, if that person doesn't then ask to speak with the manager. Someone there will help you. If by some chance that fails tell the person on the phone that you are calling the police to report him missing. If they still don't help you call the police. I'm sure you will get to talk to him way before it comes to the police being called. Good luck

12 weeks?!?! NEW

Don't know how you waited so long. If I hadn't heard from my husband in 1 day I'd be pulling my hair out. Definitely call his work and check on him.

No it is NOT strange for you to worry about your husband!!! Especially if he is your husband! I would definately contact his employer!! I've had to do that many times when I lost contact with my husband while he was driving. My husband is an over-the-road truck driver. Your husband's employer would most likely have your husband's truck on satellite and would be able to track his truck. When you talk to the dispatcher just ask them if they could tell you if your husband is all right. They are not allowed to tell you where he is for security purposes but they can tell you if they see his truck moving and that he is ok. Just knowing that always gave me peace of mind!! So sorry you are in this situation! Yes, Jesus is a comfort--call out his name when you are in trouble. I hope your husband contacts you soon.
