JR or Billy Basinger is Missing
Anyone who knows JR would know, the time for fishing and mushroom hunting is upon us. There is absolutely NO Way he would possibly leave his home of 25 years, his fishing poles and boats and all the other things including me that he loves and not return.
As of this morning, US Cellular says his phone is neither off or battery down as it does not go to voice mail. 573-819-5517. I am so frustrated with the incorrect information. I have to bring him home. He had been extremely depressed.
The police also told me that his cell phone was pinging at first and never moved off the tower in Centertown but directly on the side across the river on the Claysville side which makes sense knowing JR to be out by the river. This is one desperate wife doing everything and anything to bring him home. God Knows I love him and desperately need to find him.

Older report, but pictures of Billy Joe and the dog in video.

I'm not sure if this was mentioned but, have they looked a local humane society? Someone may have come across the dog but didn't know about this man missing?
nevermind, I just went back and saw that Brenda already has been looking into this.

By Brennan David
Saturday, April 24, 2010
For the past month, family and friends of a missing Ashland man have conducted extensive searches of southern Boone County with no success.
Billy Joe Basinger, 55, left his home on Route M near Ashland in the early morning hours of March 22 to take a ride in his green 2000 Toyota Tundra pickup. His wife, Glenda, said he left wearing slippers, with a half-pack of cigarettes and his dog, a 185-pound, black-and-white Newfoundland named Otis.
