Lombard was last seen when left home on December 17, 1993, to pick up his paycheck, then meet his wife and go Christmas shopping. He reportedly arrived at work, but was unable to pick up his paycheck due to a clerical error. Lombard's truck was recovered in the parking lot of a nearby business, unlocked, with the keys inside and the windows rolled down.
Two hours before he was last seen, Paul Armstrong (NamUs # 19500) also vanished. Although both of the men worked for a local towing company and were acquainted, they were not close friends. (Information retrieved from NamUs.gov)
