Missing Man


State Police are requesting the assistance of anyone who may have information relating to the disappearance of a 29-year-old Mississippi man whose vehicle was discovered just over a week ago near the Ashley-Chicot County line.

Robert Ross of Jackson, Miss. was last seen on March 28 when he picked up his payroll check at a Jackson business then headed for Arkansas, reportedly to visit a friend. He hasn’t been seen since.

On April 1, three days after Ross picked up his paycheck, local law enforcement officers discovered Ross’ 2005 Buick Lacross abandoned alongside Arkansas Highway 160, ten miles east of Portland near the Ashley-Chicot County line.

Evidence inside the vehicle caused State Police and local law enforcement officials to suspect foul play.

State Police have issued a news release requesting the assistance of anyone with information about Ross’ disappearance. Anyone who may have who may have seen Ross in Arkansas between March 28 and April 1 or has information about his disappearance is asked to contact State Police Special Agent Rick McKelvey at (870) 850-8630.
