His family has gone through Baker's home surveillance video and found a shot of a man (shown, right) they don't recognize who was at his house the day after he disappeared. They plan to give it to police today.

Johnny Baker CHS 1962
I have known Johnny most of my life and we grew up on the same street, 4 blocks apart. He graduated from Cushing High School in 1962. I maintain 2 CHS alumni websites and plan to keep his picture up and the story alive until he is found: http://chsclassof1963.webs.com/1962johnbakermissing.htm AND we invite prayers and messages for John and his family: http://chsclassof1963.webs.com/apps/prayers/
Hopefully, someone has seen John or talked with him and will call Crimestoppers: 918-596-COPS (2677). His family is taking this very hard. I spoke with his mother yesterday and I can't imagine how difficult this must be for John's family. He would never just take off and go this long w/o contacting his family.
