ER doctor who vanished 3 days after proposing to fiancée found dead


A Missouri ER doctor and father of eight who vanished last week after texting his new fiancée he’d see her in ‘a little bit’ was found dead Tuesday, his brother said.

Dr John Forsyth, a 49-year-old doctor from the Ozark Mountains, was reported missing after he failed to show up for his evening shift on Sunday, May 21.

Forsyth was last seen around 7.00am that same Sunday morning as he finished up his shift from the night before.

His family and coworkers didn’t sound the alarm until he failed to show up for his next shift.

His brother Richard Forsyth said authorities located his body Tuesday in northwest Arkansas.

‘We’re in shock. I suspect foul play,’ said Richard, who is expecting more details from a detective on Wednesday.

‘This is very unusual for him. This is a punctual man who has never missed a day of work in his life,’ his brother Richard Forsyth told KOLR 10.

Eventually, Forsyth’s black Infiniti was found in a parking lot of the Cassville Aquatic Center, just about a mile from his workplace.

His car doors were left unlocked, and his keys and wallet were left in the vehicle, his family said.

They also found his RV, which he stays in while working long shifts at the hospital, unlocked. His cell phone was left inside.

The last person known to hear from Forsyth, who created a cryptocurrency with his brother, may have been his fiancée, Cassville Police Det. Stuart Lombard told Fox News Digital.

‘They were texting at around 7 a.m., and he told her his shift was over, and he’d see her “a little bit later.” Then he suddenly stopped responding, Lombard said.

Forsyth’s brother later told the Daily Beast that investigators found texts to his fiancé on the phones, shortly after his shift ended at 7.00am.

His fiancé, who has not been named, has not made any public statements about the mysterious disappearance.

Richard said his brother got engaged three days before he disappeared and days after finalizing his divorce from his first wife.

An uncontested divorce settlement was issued May 11 that awarded his ex-wife about $19,000 a month in alimony and child support, Richard added.
