The last time Chet Hanks had communication with a family member was at least a month ago. According to Star Magazine, “not even a single phone call to his family or friends. It’s like he’s fallen off the face of the Earth.”
On August 27th, a picture of him was posted on Instagram by celebrity hair-stylist and make-up artist, Bella Cheveux. In the post, they appear to be a couple as Cheveux uses the hashtag #meandbae. It is to be noted that she also used the hashtag #tbt which could indicate that the picture was taken a while ago and is not necessarily a sign that Chet is safe.
The troubled 25-year old musician has a history of drug use and alcohol abuse. Nine months before going missing he had been attending rehab and seemed to be doing better until this last spring. His last interaction on social media took place on July 23 where he posted: “I’m not gonna be on Instagram for a while … Getting the f**k out of Dodge.”
On March of this year, right after Chet had gotten out of rehab, pictures of Tom and his son going to a hockey game and having some manly bonding were posted by the media. That very same month, Chet got into a fight at the Vault Nightclub in L.A. On June, he allegedly trashed a hotel room “drunk on Champagne and vodka,” according to a magazine.
Star Magazine reported the disappearance of Chet over a week ago and has been on the lookout for Tom Hank’s son. According to the magazine, Chet´s cell phone was tracked in Barstow, a desert town in California. The city is known as “the methamphetamine capital of California,” which might lead to speculations as to what he is up to.
