Michael Comer, Glenmore Country Club Prez and Developer, Still Missing

The 45 year-old Albemarle County man, whose disappearance was reported Wednesday, July 1, 7:30 pm by his wife, is still missing.

The family met with Nelson County Sheriff's Department on Sunday, July 5.

Police initially searched the hiking trails near his second home at Wintergreen Resort in Nelson County, but called off the search by Thursday night, July 2.

At this point, investigators consider Michael Comer a "missing person," and do not suspect foul play. According to media reports, “There’s no evidence that there was a crime committed,” said Nelson County Sheriff David Brooks on Friday.
Comer was president of Glenmore Country Club, in the Glenmore Development in Keswick, Albemarle County, and also served as project manager for Glenmore Associates, the entity responsible for the Glenmore Development. Comer's brother in law is Jeff Gaffney of Real Estate III; he is the one who went to Wintergreen to look for Comer.

Comer’s vehicle was found near his Wintergreen house with the doors unlocked and the keys inside. Gaffney said, “We have absolutely no idea what’s happened to him.”

According to NBC29,

Officials have said they would consider investigating other “areas and avenues” that may be connected to Comer’s disappearance.

What exactly those other scenarios are is something police “haven’t fully explained,” Gaffney said.

Gaffney said that Comer didn’t have any enemies, and he doesn’t know if Comer — whom he called a devoted family man — may have left town.

“We’re looking at every possibility,” Gaffney said.
