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.
