    On the morning of Nov. 19, Cook told a friend he had an appointment to meet someone. He hasn't been heard from since.

    When family and friends went to his house, his pickup truck was sitting in the driveway and his wallet was inside the house. The only things missing were his cell phone and glasses.

    They immediately began searching the large rural area around the house without success. From the beginning, his family has suspected foul play. They said he's not the kind to disappear on his own.

    "He had no reason to. He had a lot going for him," said Judy Transue, his sister.

    Transue said he has a daughter in college and lots of friends. He loved caring for the animals, including cattle and buffalo, on the large range where he worked.

    "He would walk up to them and feed them. He took great pride in that, of how he tamed them and how he could get them to do that," Transue said.

    Cook, 55, disappeared from his farm near Amsterdam, Mo. Only his wallet and glasses were found in his home.
    This week, the company Texas Equi-Search began scouring the farm. They specialize in searching for missing people.

    High-tech help will continue to help in the search for missing Bates County rancher David Cook.

    Last week, the Texas group Equusearch arrived to help in the search for the man who's been missing for nine months. This week, the group will launch unmanned drones over Cook's ranch hoping to spot something that will lead them to him.

    Cook's family think he died under violent circumstances. Before he went missing, someone stole 100 head of cattle off his ranch.

    Many speculations have arisen over the years, but there have been no definitive answers as to what happened to 56-year-old David Cook on November 19th.

    David was a full time rancher in addition to being a 34-year employee at the KCPL generating plant in LaCygne, Kansas. Statements in 2008 report it was a day like any other as David left for work at the power plant on November 18th around 10:30pm and that was the last reliable sighting of Cook before his mysterious disappearance. It was reported he met with one of his employees around 7am on November 19th and checked on a herd of cattle. David supposedly drove home on a four-wheeler.

    Later on November 19th, David missed a scheduled meeting with several of his business partners and did not show up for work at the power plant.
