State Police seek public’s help for missing man

RICHMOND, Va (WTVR) —  Ben Coffey has been missing for nearly four months, but Virginia State Police haven’t given up on the search for the 27-year old.

“We’re really hoping by revisiting this case now, maybe it’ll jog someone’s memory,” says State Police Spokesperson, Corinne Geller.

The last time anyone spoke to Coffey was on Christmas Day, but on January 1 of this year, Tappahannock Police discovered the 27-year old’s van, in a secluded area, with his dog inside, Geller tells CBS 6.

“At this point, we have no reason to believe there’s any foul play,” says Geller.

Police say they’re treating this as a missing person’s case, with the thought that Coffey is still alive. Geller says the only thing strange about this case is, Coffey left all of his belongings behind and vanished without a trace.

“No threats were made, no real enemies of his have been identified,” says Geller.

However, they’re hoping Coffey is identified by someone after posting his picture on the State Police Facebook page and reaching out to different police agencies across the state.

Ben Coffey is described as 5’6”, 150 lbs., with brown hair and hazel eyes.

If you have spoken with or seen Ben Coffey, contact the Tappahannock Police Department at 804-443-3992.
