The Carrolton Police are seeking information from Chattanooga to help uncover what happened to a man who disappeared 14 years ago. Brian Wehrle went missing in late September of 2009, and police suspect foul play. He was last seen at his parents’ home in Carrollton – but his car, a light blue 1992 Buick LeSabre, was found in Chattanooga over a month-and-a-half later in December. The car was found near Judson Lane and North Chamberlain Avenue. The car’s Georgia tag had been removed and replaced with a Tennessee tag. Wehrle had no known ties to Chattanooga, but authorities are hoping someone might be able to provide information that could open up new leads in the case. Wehrle’s family is putting up billboards in the area, featuring information about the case and photos of him, and his car. Greater Atlanta Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
McDonald’s is getting rid of self-serve soda machines. The fast food chain plans to eliminate the machines at its U.S. restaurants by 2032. The restaurant chain confirmed the news this week. McDonald’s USA said the goal of the change is to create consistency for customers and crew members across the chain’s offerings — from in-person dining to online delivery and drive-thru options.
