New video shows missing Georgia father later found dead walking through Baton Rouge with mystery man
A recently released video shows a missing Georgia father walking the streets of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with an unidentified man just hours before he was last seen alive.
Nathan Millard, 42, was last seen in the early hours of February 23 after he was thrown out of an Irish pub just steps from his hotel and began wandering the streets.
At one point, the video obtained by WBRZ shows, he was walking down Florida Boulevard with another unidentified man seen wearing a light-colored shirt.
Millard was later found dead, wrapped in a rug in a vacant lot, early Monday morning.
However, police say they do not believe there was any “foul play” in his death.
Nathan Millard, 42, of Georgia, who had been missing since February 23, was found dead March 6 in a vacant lot in the 2900 block of Scenic Hwy, Baton Rouge.
Recently released surveillance footage shows him walking with an unidentified man hours before he was last seen alive.
The new surveillance footage offers a clearer picture of Millard’s whereabouts in the hours before he went missing.
It shows Millard, apparently in the same black shirt he was wearing when he left the Courtyard Marriott with a client from work that night, walking down Florida Boulevard in the Louisiana city.
Sources said he left Happy’s Irish Pub, located a short walk from the hotel, at around 11:30 p.m. on February 22 after being interrupted by an employee because he had had too much to drink.
About an hour later, police say, Millard was seen passing a Greyhound bus station on Florida Boulevard, where a security guard asked if he needed help.
“The security guard offered to call him for a ride, get him an Uber or call the police for him,” Baton Rouge police Capt. Kevin Heinz said at a news conference Tuesday.
He turned down that offer and left of his own free will.
From there, Millard was reportedly seen wandering the aa on multiple surveillance cameras throughout the city, like the one that caught him with the unidentified man.
Another apparently showed an unidentified person withdrawing money from Millard’s debit card at the ATM near the bus station, his wife previously revealed. It is not clear if the man in that video is the same man who was seen walking with him nearby.
Millard was last seen in these security videos around 4:30 a.m. on February 23, police say.
Surveillance footage was released last week showing Millard leaving the hotel with his work client the night he went missing. He is seen on the right wearing the baseball cap and black T-shirt.
Millard’s wife, Amber, says he FaceTimed her from a Louisiana State University basketball game before heading to the pub with his client from work.
Millard, the father of four teenage girls and a 7-year-old girl, was on a business trip to look for a possible job location for his Conyers-based company Advanced Construction.
The father of five from Walton County, Georgia, had traveled to Baton Rouge for what was supposed to be a 24-hour business trip, his wife Amber previously said.
While there, Amber said, she decided to attend a Louisiana State University basketball game before going to the pub with her client from work.
She told WSB-TV that her husband had FaceTimed her that night from the basketball game. but there was no message from him when she woke up the next morning, which she said was unusual for him.
Texas EquuSearch, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping find missing people, began its search last week and offered a reward of up to $10,000 for Milliard’s location.
Police announced Tuesday that they do not suspect “foul play” in Millard’s death, but are looking for whoever dumped her body in a vacant lot.
A spokesman for the organization said 11 alive that police received a call Monday from a passerby who called to report a foul odor in the vacant lot.
Millard’s remains were then discovered rolled up in a rug, covered with plastic, it was reported.
Officials with the Baton Rouge Police Department said Tuesday that Millard did not appear to be in any sort of “distress” in the videos they reviewed, and they do not suspect a crime was involved in his death.
However, they believe someone moved Millard’s body and dumped it in the vacant lot along Scenic Highway, and are now looking for whoever placed the body there.
