Friends and co-workers held a vigil Wednesday evening for John Glasgow. The chief financial officer for CDI Contractors in Little Rock disappeared more than two weeks ago.
The vigil comes as the reward for finding Glasgow has increased to $70,000.
Friends and family members also updated the media Wednesday on the search for their loved one. This, as Glasgow’s brother believes the 45-year-old is very much alive and wanting to come home.
About a dozen friends and family members of John Glasgow packed the pavilion at Allsopp Park in Little Rock to talk about the latest in the search for him. They now believe Glasgow was never on Petit Jean Mountain, where his car was found.
Family friend Chip Welch says, "The car has been forensically examined by law enforcement and there are no finger prints. We think John was the victim of a crime, he may have been abducted, he may have been kidnapped and may still be alive."
Glasgow's wife Melinda also attended the event and had this to say. "Please help us find John. I really appreciate it very much. We miss him. He's a very good person. We love him and miss him."
Glasgow's brother, Roger, a Little Rock attorney, met with Today’s THV earlier in the day to talk about his brother's disappearance.
Roger Glasgow says, "My gut tells me he's alive, that he is somewhere, that he wants to come home and we need help in finding him. I truly believe that."
Glasgow was last seen leaving his Hillcrest home one Monday morning in late January. It was assumed he was going to work. When he didn't show up at the office, his wife called the police.
Roger says, "He is the straightest of all straight arrows. he is a man with integrity. he's my little brother. He and I spend a lot of time together. I love him and want to find him."
Conway County officials have suspended the search for Glasgow on Petit Jean Mountain. Officers there tell Today’s THV they have exhausted the area and are confident he's not there, although the case remains open. Officer Sonny Stover says they are looking over surveillance tape from nearby convenience stores looking for anyone that resembles John Glasgow.
Family spokesperson Chip Welch says an audit was recently done on Glasgow's books at CDI and it came back clean.
The family has built a website dedicated to the search. Click on the link here to see it.
