AR - Hec Grant, 27, Bauxite, 13 January 2007
Update Saline County Voice 01/23/08
Hec Grant went to retrieve a DVD player from a friend's house in eastern Saline County on Jan. 13, 2007. He called his wife, Autumn Romine, about 9:45 p.m. that night to say that everything was fine and he would be home as soon as the rain let up.
The family hasn't heard from him since.
Anniversary Update The Courier 01/14/08
Authorities report that they have searched every business possible, every river bottom, every nook and cranny in every section of woods they can find, but still he has not been found. The Grant family and law-enforcement officers have also been fielding numerous telephone calls with tips to help find him and/or to find the persons responsible for Grant’s disappearance.
Six months ago, when Grant was supposed to turn 28, the family held a candlelight vigil to make the community aware of his disappearance and help raise support to find him. Although, the family works tirelessly and countless hours searching for Grant, they are not giving up and neither is the Saline County Sheriff’s Department.
“We are following every lead we get,” Frost said. “We still field calls and we still stay in contact with the family. In fact, I just talked to Debbie Grant (mother of Hec Grant) and we are all still very active in pursuing this case.”

Remains Found in Saline County Identified as Missing ManThe Saline County Sheriff's Office is releasing the identity of human remains found on south Sardis Road in January.
The state crime lab used DNA evidence to help identify the remains as those of Hec Grant, who had been missing since 2007.
KARK 4 spoke with Grant's mother six months after his disappearance.
At that time, she said she believed in her heart her son had been murdered.
Now the medical examiner is ruling the cause of death a homicide.
The Saline County Sheriff's Office is working new leads in this ongoing investigation.

From April 2012:
On a rainy night in January, 2007, Hec Grant disappeared from Saline County after he went to retrieve a DVD player that had been stolen from him by an old acquaintance. Grant knew the thief from their days together on the local drug scene. The 27-year-old had cleaned up his act, but the other man had not. The theory is that the two got into a disagreement that led to Grant’s murder...
Grant’s family came to terms with the likelihood that he was dead and that his killer, whose identity was fairly common knowledge, remained a free man...
Authorities and Grant’s family believe the main suspect did not act alone and that his accomplice is already in prison on other charges.
