VIRGINIA STATE POLICE SEEK
PUBLIC’S HELP IN LOCATING
MISSING RICHMOND MAN
Virginia State Police, with the assistance of the Tappahannock Police Department, are seeking the public’s assistance with locating a missing Richmond man. Benjamin L. Coffey, 27, of Richmond, Va., has not been heard from or seen since Christmas Day (Dec. 25, 2012).
On New Year’s Day (Jan. 1, 2013), Tappahannock Police responded to a report of a disabled vehicle on Route 698, also known as Hobbs Hole Drive, in the Town of Tappahannock. Police found a 1998 Dodge full-size van abandoned on the side of the road. The vehicle was registered to Coffey. There were numerous personal items belonging to Coffey still inside the van, along with a dog.
Coffey is 5 feet 6 inches in height and weighs approximately 150 lbs. He has short, brown hair, hazel eyes, and ”COHEED CAMBRA” tattooed on his right arm. Coffey was last seen wearing a tan Carhartt brand jacket, jeans and leather boots.
Coffey was in the company of a unique looking dog due to its great Pyrenees/border collie mix. The dog, called Clue, is approximately 80-90 lbs with what is known as tan-badger Pyrenees markings and hair, with a border-collie face. The animal was taken to the Essex County Animal Shelter and is now with Coffey’s family.
Coffey is a sailboat enthusiast and has spent a great deal of time in and around marinas throughout the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck. His last known residence was in the area of Middlesex and Mathews counties.
Anyone with information about Coffey is asked to please call Virginia State Police Senior Special Agent J.R. Lyons or Special Agent A.S. Witt at (804) 553-3408 or contact by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
