6th Anniversary of the Disappearance of James Martin Roberts

Today marks the sixth anniversary of the disappearance of James Martin Roberts. On April 21, 2016, James “Martin” Roberts was reported missing to the Boone Police Department by his roommates.


Over the last six years, numerous agencies and individuals have contributed to the investigation to find Martin.  The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children released an age progressed photograph on the fifth anniversary of Martin’s disappearance to help locate him. Here is a link to Martin’s entry at NCMEC: https://tinyurl.com/4hbwnfar  Periodic reviews of the entire investigative file and process are conducted by outside specialists to ensure we are covering all the possible scenarios.


Every tip or lead received is thoroughly investigated by our team of investigators. Lead investigator, Sgt. Candace Burlingame, spearheads these efforts and is always looking for new avenues to find Martin. “The Boone Police Department works continuously with family of Martin Roberts and the community, in an effort to bring Martin home. Our hearts are always with the family, but especially this time of year” – Sgt. Candace Burlingame.


We hope each day that Martin will be found and continue to be diligent in our efforts. Please continue with your thoughts and prayers for his family who still remember and miss their son.
