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 morning hours of February 23 after he was evicted from an Irish pub a stone’s throw from his hotel and began to roam the streets.
At one point, the video was obtained by WBRZ shows, he was walking along Florida Boulevard with another unidentified man seen in a light-colored shirt.
Millard was later found dead early Monday morning, wrapped in a carpet in a vacant lot.

Recently released surveillance footage shows him walking with an unidentified man hours before he was last seen alive
The new surveillance footage provides a clearer picture of Millard’s whereabouts in the hours leading up to his disappearance.
It shows Millard, apparently in the same black shirt he wore when he left the Courtyard Marriott with a work client earlier that night, walking down Florida Boulevard in the Louisiana city.
Sources said he left the Happy’s Irish Pub, just a short walk from the hotel, at around 11:30pm on February 22, after a member of staff cut him off for drinking too much.
About an hour later, police say, Millard was seen passing a Greyhound bus station on Florida Boulevard, where a security guard asked him if he needed help.
“The guard offered to give him a ride, get him an Uber or call the police on his behalf,” Baton Rouge Police Chief Kevin Heinz said at a news conference Tuesday.
“He declined that offer and left of his own accord.”
From there, Millard was reportedly seen wandering the AA on multiple surveillance cameras throughout the city, such as the one that captured him with the unknown 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’s unclear if the man in that video is the same one who walked nearby with him.
Millard was last seen in these security videos at around 4:30 a.m. on Feb. 23, police say.
Surveillance footage released last week showed Millard leaving the hotel with his work client the night he disappeared. He can be seen on the right in the ball cap and black t-shirt

That says a spokesperson for the organization 11 Alive that police received a call on Monday from a passerby calling to report a stench on the vacant lot.
Millard’s remains were then discovered rolled up in carpet, covered in plastic, it was reported.
Baton Rouge Police Department officials noted on Tuesday that Millard did not appear to be in any sort of “distress” in the videos it reviewed, and do not suspect foul play in his death.
However, they believe someone moved Millard’s body and dumped it on the vacant lot along Scenic Highway, and are now looking for whoever placed the body there.
