The Conway County Sheriff's Office and the Arkansas State Police are searching for John W. Glasgow, 45, CFO of CDI Contractors of Little Rock.

A "multi-agency" search has been underway in Petit Jean State Park since Tuesday, when a car belonging to John W. Glasgow, vice president and chief financial officer of CDI Contractors of Little Rock, was found in the parking lot at Mather Lodge.

Tim Scott, a State Parks employee designated as spokesman for the search, said more than 200 man-hours had been devoted to finding Glasgow, 45, who was reported missing by his wife, Melinda Glasgow, late Monday afternoon.

Melinda Glasgow made the report after her husband failed to show up for work and did not respond to calls to his cell phone.

According to a Little Rock Police Department report, Glasgow was last seen leaving his home on South Lookout Street in Little Rock about 5:15 a.m. on Monday.

He left "a bank account number and the code to their personal safe on a pad of paper and left it on the table along with some checks to be mailed," according to the officer's report.

In a statement, CDI Chairman and CEO William Clark called John Glasgow "a trusted member of the CDI family for more than 17 years." He said the company has and will continue to assist law enforcement in its search.

"We remain hopeful he will be safely located," Clark said.

'Out of Character'

According to the police report, Melinda Glasgow said her husband was "stressed over events occurring at work" but "never made any statements about harming himself." She also told police that a .22 rifle was missing from the residence.

But John Glasgow's brother, Little Rock lawyer Roger Glasgow, told ArkansasBusiness.com that the single-shot rifle was a family heirloom, rarely used, and might simply have been moved to a different storage area.

"We don't know whether he took the rifle," Roger Glasgow said. "It was one of the things that went into our thoughts about putting out a missing persons report, but that's not all that meaningful to us."
