Decade old missing persons case reopened
There may be some new leads that could help crack the case of a Lake Charles man who vanished without a trace more than a decade ago. 31-year old Damon Billiot lived in Tyler, Texas, about six months before he disappeared in March 1996. Now Tyler police say they have new information and have reopened the case.
It's been more than 11 years since Bob and Shirley Billiot have heard from their son Damon. Bob says, "For years we never left this house together. One of us stayed here hoping a phone call would come."
The then 31 year old Damon and his family had just moved to Tyler, Texas, six months before he disappeared. Police say he was last seen at his home in the 2300 block of Pleasant Drive in Tyler on March 15, 1996. Police suspect foul play. Since Damon's disappearance, his driver's license hasn't been renewed and there has been no employment activity connected to his social security number.
The Billiots never stopped looking and hoping. Shirley says, "When you're driving down the road, you keep looking at all the hitchhikers or you think maybe he's on the road walking. You pass somebody and you say well maybe that's him and you take a double take. I guess not knowing, there's still hope" Bob says, "There's still hope."
Because this case is under investigation police will not discuss the details. If you have any information that may lead Tyler police to Damon Billiot's whereabouts, please call Detective Adam Tarrant at 903-531-1027.
Billiot is five foot eight, 175 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He would have turned 43 last week.

Digging For The Truth, March 12, 2008
This article is from 2008, but contains a little more info.
The yellow evidence flags mark areas of interest for police in the backyard of a Tyler home - the former home of a man who has been missing for 12 years and who may have met with foul play.
Authorities would not confirm nor deny questions posed by the Tyler Paper on Tuesday regarding the possibility that repressed memories of a child were the catalyst for the renewed interests in the case.
Whatever the reason, police and FBI agents have once again searched the residence at 2314 Pleasant Drive where Damon Paul Billiot was last seen on March 15, 1996.
Tyler Police Department Public Information Officer Don Martin said major crimes detectives had recently been contacted by Billiot's mother in regard to her son's disappearance, which she reported two months after he was last seen. Billiot's wife did not report her husband missing.
"We've followed up with the wife who lives in Tennessee, and the case is still under investigation and we are still following leads," Martin said.
