    I have searched and searched the interent for news articles and I haev found nothing. It is so sad and very strange case. I feel so sad for his family. I think there is more then meets the eye to this case, although there is not much information out there about his disapearance. I understand they need to keep things sometimes quite, but it always seemed starnge that there was not a few more details...like where he was ealry what time he left home, who was the last to see him, what where his plans for that evening.

    I think about Jeffrey & his famliy often. I saw a new post on this thread and hoped there was some new inforamtion about this case. It is too bad we didn't have more info there are some great sleuthers here too bad we cant help.

    Missing Man Gone Four Years

    http://www.kxii.com
    1-29-05

    It has been four years to the day since 18 year old Jeffrey Ben disappeared without a trace from Pushmataha County. On the anniversary of his disappearance, family and friends held a candlelight vigil, praying for answers to their unending questions.

    People gathered in Clayton, Oklahoma Saturday evening for the vigil which included photos of Jeffrey and prayers from friends and family.

    Jeffrey disappeared January 29th, 2001 on his way home from a Super Bowl party. Authorities discovered his truck abandoned in Pushmataha County, but there was no sign of the outgoing teenager. In the four years since he went missing, Jeffrey's mother has organized several vigils and concerts in his honor and hoping to keep his memory alive.

    Law enforcement officials concede that the trail has gone cold, but they continue to hold out hope and say the case continues to be classified as "missing person."

    I saw someone had posted on this thread and thought "Oh maybe they found him" and clicked on this thread right away. Thanks for bumping this thread and putting his name back out there.

    I did a little more searching on the internet again this morning for news articles etc about his case and I could not find a one.......they are only a few websites that have his web paged linked. It makes me sad to search and not find much information....it is so stragne that there is not one news article. I read his guest book entries on his website and it brings me to tears. I pray they find Jeffrey soon.

    Thanks Misty. I'm forever searching for stuff on Jeffrey and I always come up blank. I did hear some whispers about his cousins being involved, but I don't know- you know how these things get blown out of proportion. I just think they don't have a clue what happened to him. He is so beautiful as well. I really hope they find him............x

    Jeffrey's case is one that touched me deeply- the love that is shown is his sister's writings is so apparent. I pray that his family finds the answers to what happened to him soon.

    I met his mother, Linda recently. She is a lovely woman, both inside and out.

    You should consider adopting Jeffrey on our Adopt a Missing Person program. All of the info and instructions are here:

    Thank you.

    I will do Misty- no problem. Just had a quick scan on google to find that old article on his cousins but I can't find it. Think (from memory) that he was on his way to or back from a party. Think I remember allegations of drugs being involved (not Jeffrey involved but maybe he stumbled across something or got caught up in something). Who knows- its weird that they found his car though.
    I'll let you know if I hear anything.............x
    ps Kelly I am very interested in the adopt a missing persons programme but I'm in the UK...........Think we really need something similar over here.

    Hi Momof3,

    I also visit Jeffreys website and check for updates. There havent ever been any as far as I can remember. It would seem that this is a complete mystery. Jeffery seemed to vanish into thin air. It is so puzzling...............
