Overview of Tony Woodworth
Tony Eugene Woodworth was a 35 year old man living in Charleston, MO at the time of his disappearance.
Tony was known as a very funny guy, who prioritizes family over everything. Shortly before his disappearance, Tony was released from house arrest after spending time in prison for burglary.

Tony vanished from his sister’s home in October of 2007.
