It was a sweltering hot summer day when 36-year-old Dustin Randy Wallace went missing abruptly on August 1, 2021 in Perry, Houston County, Georgia. Now, over a year after his disappearance, his case remains a mystery. His family has been diligently searching for him since the day after his disappearance, when they had not heard back from him and grew concerned. Days turned into weeks— and their concern grew tremendously. Because Wallace was person who frequently kept in contact with his family, his family members greatly fear for his safety and well-being.
I have been communicating with Wallace’s sister, who has pieced together a detailed timeline of his disappearance and has been collecting clues.
On the day of Wallace’s disappearance, he clocked out of his place of employment, Real Turf Solutions, and he called his brother and informed him that he was leaving his work and walking towards Publix, a grocery store which was in the same direction of his house, on Perry Parkway. He also reportedly texted a friend to ask if she could give him a ride to an 8:00 p.m. AA meeting in Byron, Georgia. The friend, whose name I will keep disclosed for privacy, states that they did hang out together that day, but they did not end up going to the AA meeting. Instead, they went to a Walmart parking lot to sit and talk. She states that they were together until 11:00 p.m., when she dropped him off. Wallace’s mother also received a text from him that same night at 9:39 p.m; however, there is no proof that Wallace was the one who sent the text. A message was sent to his Facebook at 7:09 p.m. that same night, but the message was marked “delivered” yet also marked “unread”. It is uncertain if Wallace’s friend in fact picked him up or if she was misremembering the date they last hung out.
Video surveillance footage at a local gas station, Texaco, shows Wallace walking in front of the store towards the direction of his home.
Wallace did not own a vehicle at the time of his disappearance, and he primarily traveled by foot or by getting rides.
Wallace was wearing denim jeans, a lime green shirt, and black shoes on the day of his disappearance.
Law Enforcement officials pinged Wallace’s phone, leading to a 10-mile radius of Feagin Mill Road in Warner Robins, Georgia. That phone is no longer in service, and records cannot be obtained.
Wallace had been using the alias “Christopher Perkins” on his most recent Facebook page. He has also used “Dee Dizzle” in the past. However, most of his Facebook pages use his real name. It is unclear if he was hiding from someone at the time of his disappearance.
Before Wallace’s disappearance, he had been talking about the possibility of renting a room he found in Bonaire, Georgia.
Born on May 31, 1985, Wallace grew up in Warner Robins, Georgia. He attended Northside High School in Warner Robins and was from the graduating class of 2003. After high school, he obtained employment doing landscaping, which he did for several years.
Wallace can be described as a Caucasian male with brown hair, blue eyes, and many tattoos. One of his tattoos says “Blessed” written on the front of his neck.
