Chance Englebert

Listen Now:

In 2019, Chance Englebert was spending the weekend with his in laws in Gering, Nebraska. On Saturday, July 6th, he, and some family members went golfing and there was some type of argument over Chance’s new job, specifically about him making less money than in his previous position. Chance gets upset, calls his wife Baylee to pick him up and he tells her that he wants to cut the weekend short and just go back home to Wyoming. But instead of going directly home, Baylee says she drives them back to her grandparent’s home and she and Chance get into a fight in the driveway that results in Chance walking away from the home. This is something Chance did when he would get upset, he would take a walk to cool down and then come back when he was in a better frame of mind. But this time Chance didn’t come back.

Chance Englebert went missing from Gering, Nebraska on July 6th, 2019. Chance has brown hair and hazel eyes, he is 5 feet 11 inches tall, and has a medium build. He was last seen wearing a short sleeve button-up Wrangler shirt, dark blue Wrangler jeans, roper-style boots, and a black and white trucker hat.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Gering Police Department at 308-436-5088.
