TICONDEROGA - A reward is being offered for information on a missing Ticonderoga man.
Jody King, 28, has been missing since April 20.
Last seen in Connecticut, he has been the subject of a month-long search by police agencies in Connecticut and Ticonderoga, private investigators, family and others.
"I don't know what to think," Casey King, his wife, said. "I know something's very wrong. He wouldn't just leave us."
The Kings have three daughters, ages 5, 4 and 7 weeks.
"It's a real mystery," Investigator Dan LaFrance of the Ticonderoga Police Department said. "It's a very unusual case."
LaFrance was in Connecticut last week to be briefed on the case ny local authorities.
At 8:57 p.m. April 20 police in Connecticut received several 911 calls reporting an accident on Interstate 91 near Enfield. One of the calls was from a passenger in a truck driven by King.
The passenger got out of the truck a mile before the crash and made the call, although police are not giving details how the man got out of the vehicle before the wreck.
Responding, police found the truck off I-91 but found no signs of the driver, King. Witnesses reported
King left the scene, running into a nearby wooded area.
"We can't disclose full details of the accident," LaFrance said.
The next day, April 21, Casey King reported her husband, missing. Jody King had been working on a construction project in Connecticut since last October, commuting home to Ticonderoga on weekends.
The next two days police with canine units and helicopters searched the area. King's wallet, cell phone and clothing were found, but there was no trace of King.
In the month since there have been no credible sightings of King, no contact from him and no activity in his financial accounts.
Police do not suspect foul play, LaFrance said, based on the information they have.
"We're hoping to find him well," LaFrance said of King. "There are mixed feelings among investigators as to exactly what happened."
King was at work the day of his disappearance, leaving early at about 2-3 p.m., LaFrance said. He went to a sports bar in New Haven where surveillance video shows him leaving in the early evening with another man - but not the man who was in the truck prior to the accident.
Police tracked King's movements from the time of the accident back and have yet to find any clues to his whereabouts.
"We know where he was and what he did up to the time of the accident," LaFrance said. "After that, we just don't know."
LaFrance credited Connecticut State Police and the Enfield Police Department with a thorough investigation. Connecticut police have not only searched the area, but have gone door-to-door looking for witnesses.
"Our hearts go out to the King family," Ti Police Sgt. Mark Johns said. "It's not technically our case, but we're serving as a liaison with Connecticut police."
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ticonderoga Police Department at 585-3456 or the Connecticut State Police at 860-534-1000.
While King's family is appreciative of police efforts, they are conducting their own search.
Family members have hired a private investigator, Todd Lovejoy, and have traveled to Connecticut each weekend since the disappearance to search and hand out flyers with King's photo.
The family said anyone with information who is unwilling to speak to police can call Lovejoy at 203-509-5481 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
"There are no real leads, but the (private) investigator has found out a lot of information since he's started working on this," Casey King said. "We handed out 500 flyers last weekend and we plan on going every weekend to search."
The family is offering a $2,000 reward for information.
The ordeal has been difficult on the King children, their mother said.
"They really don't understand," Casey King said. "They know their daddy is missing, I had to tell them, but they don't know what that means.
"Now they're afraid I'm going to go missing," she continued. "They become very worried every weekend when I leave for Connecticut."
