Details of Disappearance
Hourihan was last seen in Palmyra, Virginia on April 8, 2011. On the day of his disappearance he put on his work uniform and left at 6:30 a.m. as if to go to work at his electrician job in Richmond, Virginia. He wasn't scheduled to work that day, something his wife was unaware of. He was driving his wife's car, a white 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier with a vanity license plate reading TARA MAE; a photo of it is posted with this case summary.

Instead of going to work, Hourihan drove northwest on Route 53. He had breakfast at the E.W. Thomas Grocery Store in Palmyra at 8:00 a.m.; he had previously worked at the business and was well-known there as a result. He was planning to meet a friend, but never arrived there. When he had breakfast was is the last time anyone saw him; he has never been heard from again.

On May 28, a fifty days after his disappearance, Hourihan's car was found parked on the edge of the parking lot of a Target store in La Plata, Maryland. This is 1115 miles away from his home. Hourihan's valuable electrician's tools were still inside it and there was no evidence of a crime.

Hourihan had been married for nearly thirteen years prior to his disappearance, and has one child. His wife believes he was murdered, as she doesn't think he would have abandoned their daughter. She doesn't believe he was being unfaithful or was involved with drugs, and describes their relationship as a close and loving one. She stated they don't know anyone in Maryland and she doesn't know why Hourihan might have traveled there.

His case remains unsolved and foul play is suspected.
