Details of Disappearance
Ben was employed in Detroit, Michigan at a fiver-optic company in 2001. He returned to his family's residence in Clayton, Oklahoma in late January of that year. Ben was last seen at approximately 1:00 a.m. on January 29, 2001 on 9-Pine Road in the Tuskahoma area of Pushmataha County, Oklahoma. (Some agencies may refer to the road as "Nine Pines Road"). He was wearing a white t-shirt, a black hooded Carhartt jacket, jeans and Chucka lace-up boots at the time of his disappearance. Ben has never been heard from again. His pickup truck was discovered wrecked and abandoned near the area shortly afterwards. There was no sign of Ben at the scene.

Authorities stated that one of Ben's cousins failed a polygraph test concerning his case later in 2001. It is not known if the person is connected to Ben's disappearance.

I have searched and searched the interent for news articles and I haev found nothing. It is so sad and very strange case. I feel so sad for his family. I think there is more then meets the eye to this case, although there is not much information out there about his disapearance. I understand they need to keep things sometimes quite, but it always seemed starnge that there was not a few more details...like where he was ealry what time he left home, who was the last to see him, what where his plans for that evening.

I think about Jeffrey & his famliy often. I saw a new post on this thread and hoped there was some new inforamtion about this case. It is too bad we didn't have more info there are some great sleuthers here too bad we cant help.

Missing Man Gone Four Years

http://www.kxii.com (http://www.kxii.com/)
1-29-05

It has been four years to the day since 18 year old Jeffrey Ben disappeared without a trace from Pushmataha County. On the anniversary of his disappearance, family and friends held a candlelight vigil, praying for answers to their unending questions.

People gathered in Clayton, Oklahoma Saturday evening for the vigil which included photos of Jeffrey and prayers from friends and family.

Jeffrey disappeared January 29th, 2001 on his way home from a Super Bowl party. Authorities discovered his truck abandoned in Pushmataha County, but there was no sign of the outgoing teenager. In the four years since he went missing, Jeffrey's mother has organized several vigils and concerts in his honor and hoping to keep his memory alive.

Law enforcement officials concede that the trail has gone cold, but they continue to hold out hope and say the case continues to be classified as "missing person."

I saw someone had posted on this thread and thought "Oh maybe they found him" and clicked on this thread right away. Thanks for bumping this thread and putting his name back out there.

I did a little more searching on the internet again this morning for news articles etc about his case and I could not find a one.......they are only a few websites that have his web paged linked. It makes me sad to search and not find much information....it is so stragne that there is not one news article. I read his guest book entries on his website and it brings me to tears. I pray they find Jeffrey soon.

Thanks Misty. I'm forever searching for stuff on Jeffrey and I always come up blank. I did hear some whispers about his cousins being involved, but I don't know- you know how these things get blown out of proportion. I just think they don't have a clue what happened to him. He is so beautiful as well. I really hope they find him............x

Like where was who was he with, was he out with friends doing something and onhis way home and disappread etc? All it says was he was last seen at 1:00 am...who was the last to see him?

I will do Misty- no problem. Just had a quick scan on google to find that old article on his cousins but I can't find it. Think (from memory) that he was on his way to or back from a party. Think I remember allegations of drugs being involved (not Jeffrey involved but maybe he stumbled across something or got caught up in something). Who knows- its weird that they found his car though.
I'll let you know if I hear anything.............x
ps Kelly I am very interested in the adopt a missing persons programme but I'm in the UK...........Think we really need something similar over here.

I can't believe this family can't get any answers from LE. From what I've read in the past entries in Jeffrey's guestbook (which I think have since been deleted) it looks like LE at the time of his disappearance may not have been on the up and up! He is so handsome....I think his website address is posted in one of the previous entries...please check it out :)

It sounds like it's possible someone ran him off the road and into the tree, and then kidnapped him.

Without knowing the actual construction of the road it's hard to know how sharp a curve that was, how easily he would have run off the road without any kind of interference, etc., whether the voices sounded like fighting, angry voices . . .

I wonder how long after the neighbors heard the crash, did they go out and investigate it? And he was gone by then and there was no other car there?

So sad.

This is one of my "pet" cases that i've always been interested in, probably because he's around my age.

I know LE has interviewed the cousins and uncles many times, but I still think something is going on w/ the cousins, especially since one of the cousins failed a polygraph
http://www.amw.com/missing_persons/video_photos.cfm?id=33741

but of course, no conviction can be upheld without and evidence and especially a body.

I didn't notice a reward on the website...maybe his mom should start fundraising and taking donations on her website. I would sure contribute. Hopefully the thought of money will get someone to talk. I think the general consensus is that he was met with foul play, and most perps can't keep their mouth shut (be it their conscience, or for bragging rights). Someone has to know something about this....But then again sometimes family secrets are very hard to uncover.

I don't see where drugs plays into this case...I can't imagine someone being killed for "stumbling onto" something. What were the big drugs in the area during that time? I'm assuming meth....was there anything else? Could it be that he was going to rat out someone? I just don't get how murdering someone is more profitable than taking the rap for drugs.

I think the cousin knows way more then he's saying...like you said, he failed the polygraph.
If you read Jeffrey's guestbook (which I'm sure you have since you follow his case also) there had been a lot of talk about the cousin being involved in drugs and since Jeffrey was at that particular cousins house the night he went missing there has to be some connection.
I also read in the guestbook about how corrupt LE was in the area. Someone even gave a link to the Sheriff or a deputy <~don't remember which, but there was a link to the mugshot/rap sheet that individual had. I believe LE corruption at the time of Jeffrey's disappearance is the reason the family was never able to get any answers...
I think about Jeffrey and his family all the time....I hope they can find peace soon!

Remains may be of missing SE Oklahoma teen

Posted: March 27, 2006

CLAYTON, Okla. The mother of a missing southeastern Oklahoma teenager says investigators may have found her sons remains after more than five years.

Linda Miller says the remains may be those of her son Jeffrey Ben of Clayton in Pushmataha County.

Ben was last seen in January 2001 driving his father's truck. The truck was found crashed in a ditch but there was no sign of Ben.

Now Miller says remains have been found in the area and testing will determine if they are those of Ben.

jodierenee
04-03-2006, 06:50 PM
taken from jeffrey's guestbook...so true...


I write this with a heavy heart and mixed emotions. I feel relief that Jeffrey was found so his mother, sister, brothers and the rest of his family and friends won't have to wonder where he is for years to come. I feel sickness as to what he might have gone through that night, sadness that such a beautiful soul was taken to early from the people who loved him, and anger as to whom is responsible for this act. Nothing will erase the memory of searching a hill side through leaves, pine needles and in between rocks for pieces of a loved one that some inhuman thing disgarded like trash, the look of pain on his mothers face not knowing for sure what she carries in a sack is what is left of her son. The tears we as a family have cried these last 5 years and the tears my daughter cried when finding a rib of her cousin she loved. They thought they had got away with murder, that they put him in a place where no one would find him, remote, rocky, rough terrain way back in the woods. But they forgot the most important part, God answers prayer. God led the loggers directly to Jeffrey, this I am certain. Justice is the Lord's, in His way, in His time. Everything hidden will come to light, just like Jeffrey's remains were found, just like the people responsible will be found. Right now all they have is time, but time stands still for no one.

I hadnt heard anything on the board under located so I didnt expect to find that he had been found on the charley project website. Though its sad, its good that his family and friends know the truth. Now I only hope they find who did this...

After posting this I went to "the voice for the missing" blog and read what was posted about Ben. Can someone please tell me that this boys family wasnt the one to find the body? That his brother didnt find a rib that was actually his brother? I cant imagine this....its even more horrible to me now....to actually find the remains....a relief and horror....I really really hope their is justice.

I believe his sister found a rib, not neccesarily his rib. It doesn't sound as if they found all of the remains. I am waiting to hear news, and am not going to attempt contact at this time as I respect their privacy while mourning.

I hope testing will reveal something so the family does not have to deal with a new mystery.

I didn't think of that! I think some loggers in the area found the remains; it sounded as though the family *knew* it was Jeffrey even though another individual from the same town (it may have been 2 others...can't remember..1 for sure) went missing around the same time as Jeffrey. I would be curious to know if any tips were phoned in.

How horrible that it was his family that dug up his remains. I don't know if I could survive that. I honestly don't. If it was loggers that found something why was it the family that dug through the leaves, etc, to find the rest of his remains. Were they there before LE got there or did they go in afterwards and do some serious digging around? It sounds like it was a nephew that found a rib bone. What a horror for that family.

I wonder if LE has taken the cousin back in to question him? How could a cousin murder a cousin? I'm sure it happens but I just can't imagine killing one of my cousins. If they were watching a ball game together they must have hung out together. Maybe the cousin knows who was involved. That would be awful hard to find out that a family member did this. Probably turn this family more on end then it already is. Regardless, I hope LE find out who did this terrible thing. This young man deserves justice.

I am from Antlers, Ok do not live there now but grew up there. Antlers and Clayton is in Pushmataha county, Antlers is the county seat. Clayton and Antlers is not very big. The reason there is not much in the news about this you have 2 tv station both are out of Tx. kten is one of them and ant the other is Kxii channel 12 . YOu have the local newspaper that comes out 1 time a week they dont put it on the internet. You have Tulsa and Oklahoma City both are 150 miles north of Antlers. A lot of logging goes on there. I did not know jeffrey, but, I know Linda she is from Antlers. As far as I know they still dont how he got to where he was found or what/who caused him to die.



I can't imagine someone being killed for "stumbling onto" something. What were the big drugs in the area during that time? I'm assuming meth....was there anything else?

There is alot woods down where people grow marijauna and set up meth labs. I have heard of people being shot at for find others marijauna patches. So yes I could imagine someone getting killed for stumbling onto something.

From what i understand and heard when he was found is he was in the woods less then 5 miles from his truck. A logger was getting ready to start logging them woods and came across his remains and report it to the LE. Then LE let the family go out and find the rest of him. it would have been his mom, sister, and brothers. I dont think he has any nephews.

darrel hamions is the other guy that has went missing from the same area his wallet was found in the lake. As far as I know they have not found him.

Sweetheart thanks for posting. Welcome. No one cares about spellcheck so don't worry about it (but if you'd feel better about it, it's in the top right hand corner when you post, but I think you have to download it).

If what you heard is true about the body, I am disgusted about the fact that LE would just let the family dig up the rest of the remains. Nice investigation. And we wonder why no one has been arrested for his murder (assuming he was murdered).

The same policemen have been known to be called to fight on the NE side of town and they show up on SW side town. My famliy always jokes about cops runnig from calls. We had our house broke in one time and called a cop out and they could not find anything. Cops girlfriend and bothers are the ones that broke in our house. Couple years later after the cop and girlfriend broke up cop told my dad who broke in that our stuff was hid in a shed behind the house that was not serched that night. I have all so heard a rumor that the shierf was not on the up and up like some files came up missing and after the left office they were found at his house. While he was in office he had know Ideal where they were at .

Thanks so much for posting and replying about Jeffery! And welcome to Websleuths! I remember when I used to read about this story (before his remains were found), that the law enforcement in the town was a bit corrupt/shady. That is so sad and very scary. :eek: Justice probably never will be served. So so sad.

Thanks again! Keep posting!

sweetheart...isn't the guy who was sheriff end up in jail? I followed Jeffreys case for a very long time and was heartbroken to hear about how his family had to dig up and gather his remains....LE in that area should be ashamed (as a better lack of words!!) I haven't looked in a couple of months but I believe the family still has Jeffreys website active and people still post messages on his guestbook. I hope there is justice soon for Jeffrey and his family (I would still be looking at the cousin for answers!!)

sweetheart..he may not have been the sheriff...I think his name was Dusty something or other and he had a really young girlfriend (could have been just a deputy)...some posters on Jeffreys guestbook felt like he had something to do with the disappearance

I agree. I think most of the posters on the guest book "know" what happened to Jeffery and who might have done it. Sadly, it will probably never be proven.

The guest book is still active. I still read it. It breaks my heart to read the posts from his mom and sister.

There was Dusty that was questioned. I dont know if he was arrested. Antlers didnt have a city police or a sheriff deputy named dusty (that I know of). There might be/been one in Clayton. Jeffery was up arond Clayton when he went missing and was found up around Clayton).

Yes, this guy was from Clayton and his arrest wasn't in any way connected to Jeffrey's disappearance...I think it had something to do with robbery..

The sheriff last name at the time was Fylod (might be spelled wrong sounds like flood). He got in trouble for taking the files on jeffreys case that I mention earlier. There has never been any arrest for jeffreys murder.

I did not know this site existed; ;I was looking for Jeffrey's website which is down for now and came to this site and saw where these wonderful people were checking on Jeffrey. It made me feel so good to know people we didn't even know cared. I just want to say it has been 7 yrs. since Jeffrey disappeared. It is one of the worst things that can happen to a family. In 2006 he was found deceased in the mountains...a relief that he was found but a tragedy in the outcome. We still do not know what happened to him. Law enforcement in Southeast Ok. is not like it is on TV. I just have to trust that Karma will be the killers justice. There is no pain like loosing a child, especially in this manner with the not knowing...the only thing worse would be not finding them at all and for this I am grateful. Thankyou so much for your concern, prayers and love. Remember all the other missing, especially a young lady named Heather Teaque whos precious mother is still searching with little help from anyone. May God be with her and answer her prayer.

Jeffrey's Mom- Thank you for posting. Do you know why Jeffrey's site is down? Is there any way you can contact someone higher up for help with the case? Something is just not right with this whole thing. I would go above and beyond your local LE and government. These people do not have your family's best interests at heart.

No one should have to deal with the lose of a child; let alone with local law enforcement that is good for nothing.
