Morehouse College student Ben Jones has been missing since Friday. His family is from Roswell, Georgia and was in town for Morehouse College’s 130th commencement this past Sunday. But the family stated they have not heard from Jones. The last thing Jones told his family was that he was going to pick up graduation tickets and they have not heard from him since that call. The family fear that Jones did not get cleared for graduation and was too embarrassed to tell his parents. His father, Richard Jones, stated to local media, “For him to stay away for four days over the disappointment of that would be very much unlike him.”
The family has filed a missing persons report and Roswell, Georgia police are looking for the young man. Police spokeswoman Lisa Holland stated, “It is strange that there hasn’t been any activities on his cell phone. Right now we are treating this as a missing persons case.”
Information on Ben Jones, his vehicle and physical description have been entered into a Georgia’s crime information database.
