Police believe that at the time of the disappearance Forbes had a large sum of money in his possession. He also suffered from a serious health condition and required medication on a daily basis, though it’s likely he did not have it on him when he disappeared.

Officers believe the circumstances of the Forbes disappearance are suspicious and foul play is suspected.
