A mother has turned to Facebook to help track down her famous chef husband who allegedly vanished to another US State after getting her pregnant with a second child.

Massachusetts woman Ashley McGuire has sent internet sleuths into a frenzy after she posted in a Facebook group named ‘Are We Dating The Same Guy?’” in the hopes her missing husband could be tracked down.

She claims Charles Withers, who previously appeared on an episode of Food Network’s Chopped, had left her with two children without warning.

“I am really about to test the power of Facebook with this one...,” the post began.

“This is my husband, Charles Withers. He loves to be the center of attention but I’m not sure how much he’s going to like this.

“Last year, when I was pregnant with our youngest baby, he decided being a husband and a dad wasn’t the lifestyle he wanted anymore and he ghosted, like gone without a trace.

“He has one baby he hasn’t seen in over a year and one he’s never met. He’s moved somewhere out of state and changed his phone number.’

She said once she tracks him down she plans to file a divorce.

“Divorcing someone who’s completely unreachable is really tough and drawn out, so I’m trying to track him down, so I’m trying to track him down to get his signature on a few papers so I can finally close this chapter and move on with my life,” she said.

“I’ve heard he is going by ‘Charlie’ now. He’s British and charming as f....”

“He’s a chef and probably never mentioned having a wife of kids back in Massachusetts.

‘If you know him, if you’re working with him, if you’re dating him or friends with him, can you please have him get in touch with me or let me know where I can find him.

Mr Withers is known to own Falmouth’s C Salt Wine Bar and Grille in Massachusetts — which is listed as being permanently closed.

In a follow-up post, Ms McGuire said she had since received “more than enough” information to find her husband following her first post.

“UPDATE: Guys... This is absolutely insane. I figured maybe someone in my area was still in touch with him but I absolutely did not expect this,” she said.

“I’ve gotten more than enough information to locate him. I have literally hundreds of messages to sort through, some with information and some with support, and I appreciate all of them.

“Single moms are a special breed, and I know a lot of you have gone through the same situation I have.

She said she did not encourage people to make threats towards Mr Withers.

“I sincerely appreciate all of your support, but please do not make threats, spread hate, or try to go out and locate him,’ she said. ‘Truly I only want to see this situation resolved so me and my children can restart our lives and fix the damage done.”
