Jarod's mom Tammy shared this information on social media:

Monday morning we got a phone call that the truck was found on a remote road in Indiana. Both dogs were inside with their leashes on. Both driver-side doors were left open. The keys were in it and turned on. The truck ran until it ran out of gas and then the battery died at approximately 6 pm Sunday according to our app.
  • Jared left Saturday evening to go see his son Chandler in Salem, IL.
  • He made it to a gas station there in Salem at about 1:30 am.
  • We pulled the video and spoke to the clerk, and everything seemed fine.
  • We never made it to his destination after leaving there.
  • That's where there is a lot of gaps in the timeline
