Missing Airman's Family Comes to Alaska to Help Search
Family arrived Wednesday from the Missouri and Kansas area
ANCHORAGE - Anchorage detectives are still looking for 24-year-old airman Clinton Reeves, who has been missing for 10 days.
His family arrived Wednesday from the Missouri and Kansas area to help with the search.
Reeves' rental car, a 2012 red Dodge Avenger, was found abandoned in the Russian Jack Park neighborhood last week with his uniform and groceries inside.
Police are contacting people Reeves might have met or contacted through Craigslist while he was looking for a new car.
According to APD, a squadron mate was the last person to speak with Reeves on Sunday, April 22.
He didn't show up to work on Monday April 23 and that was when his red 2012 Dodge Avenger was reported abandoned on McCarrey Street.
Reeves’ mom, Judy Davis, knew something had gone wrong when a few days had passed without a call from her son.
"He didn't report to work and that's when everybody started scrambling looking for him," said Davis during a press conference on Wednesday afternoon,
"My gut's telling me it's not good if he's been gone this long – over a week.”
The last time she spoke with her son was April 17.
"He called me and he was excited because Geico was going to pay off his car, and he was going to be able to buy a used car and not worry about car payments any more because that was kind of an issue,” said Davis.
Davis said her only son is a happy 24-year-old who loved movies, hiking and camping and was learning how to speak Japanese.
Davis also said during their last phone conversation they were planning a vacation; she was supposed to arrive in Anchorage this Saturday to spend time with him.
