Missing Person Investigation

    Boise, May 30, 2007 - Boise Police are asking the public for any information on the whereabouts of a man reported missing in December of 2004.

    Boise Police Detectives have no evidence that foul play is involved in Mr. Barnard's disappearance. Detectives are concerned, however, due to the length of time that has passed since he was last seen with no information surfacing to indicate his whereabouts. Friends and family of Mr. Barnard say it is very unusual of him not to have contacted his loved ones on significant occasions like holidays or birthdays.

    Boise Police Detectives have been actively following leads in this case, however, none of those leads have turned up any evidence of the missing man's whereabouts. Boise Police, in cooperation with Mr. Bernard's family, are asking citizens if they have any information that might help in locating him.

    Missing: Ahren "Benji" Benjamin Barnard, age 37 (born 1969)

    Last Seen: Dec. 4, 2004 at a fast food restaurant at Cole & Overland in Boise.
