STATE POLICE REQUEST PUBLIC ASSISTANCE IN DISAPPEARANCE OF MISSISSIPPI MAN

April 10, 2014

  Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division are requesting the assistance of anyone who may have information relating to the disappearance of a Mississippi man last month.

  Robert Ross, 29, of Jackson, Mississippi was last seen on Friday March 28th when he picked-up a payroll check at a Jackson business and set-out for Arkansas, reportedly with intentions to visit a friend.

  On Tuesday, April 1st local law enforcement authorities found Ross’s 2005 Buick LaCrosse abandoned alongside State Highway 160, ten miles east of Portland, Arkansas near the Ashley–Chicot County line.

  Evidence inside the vehicle has caused sheriff’s deputies and State Police to have some suspicion of foul play associated with Ross’s disappearance.

  Anyone who may have seen Ross in Arkansas before the car was found or who may have information about his disappearance should contact the Special Agent Rick McKelvey at (870) 850-8630.
