Man still missing after four years
BOISE - Friends and family members continue to hold out hope that 39 year old Ahren "Benji" Benjamin Barnard will be found.

Barnard was last seen on December 4, 2004 at a fast food restaurant at Cole and Overland in Boise.

On the fourth anniversary of his disappearance, Vicki Barnard, Ahren's mother, said she has to work hard to keep hope alive.

"My instinct and my gut tells me that my son is no longer alive," Barnard said.

Boise police continue to follow up on leads. At this point, detectives cannot point to foul play in the case, however they do believe Barnard is endangered.

Barnard was last seen wearing a black leather jacket and jeans. He also has a scar on his left arm.

Anyone with information on Barnard's whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.
