    Age is WAY off, but look at his last name, look at his face, eye color, height. Weight is off, but Richard was missing since 1996. Richard has the CLOSEST nose shape of anyone I have seen.

    When missing in 1996 he was:

    29 years old (Which would make him 43 now)
    5'11"
    Brown hair
    Green eyes
    170 lbs.

    No DNA, dentals or fingerprints, so he could not have previously been ruled out.

    It appears that Richards mothers side is from Tennessee. (Her maiden name was Seals) and his father was from Idaho, but they have family in CO. I am trying to find an IN connection. (There is a RIchard W Bendele from IN, but it is RIchard Wayne)

    Details of Disappearance
    Bendele was last seen hunting pheasants in the Laidlaw Park, Idaho area on November 17, 1996. He called his mother at 6:00 p.m. to say his blue pickup truck had stalled on a remote desert road. Although the vehicle had gas, it wouldn't start. Bendele couldn't provide specific directions to the truck and said he was going to try to mark the road and would call his mother back.

    He has never been heard from again, and his truck was discovered abandoned near the Laidlaw Corral area north of Rupert, Idaho shortly after his disappearance. His coat and shotgun were inside it, and the truck's battery was broken and tipped upside down.

    A photo of a similar vehicle is posted with this case summary. An extensive search of the area turned up no other evidence except one shoe and two right-hand gloves.

    Bendele worked in a supervisory position at the J.R. Simplot Co. in Heyburn, Idaho when he disappeared. His hobbies include hunting and fishing. He was going through a divorce and living with a girlfriend in Burley, Idaho; his two children lived with their mother.

    Although Benedele previously abused alcohol and drugs, his mother stated he'd turned his life around by the time of his disappearance. He didn't have any money or extra clothes when he went missing, although he did have a cellular phone. Authorities suspect he may have been taken against his will.
