Glasgow, 45, the chief financial officer for CDI Contractors of Little Rock, was last seen leaving his home on South Lookout Street about 5:15 a.m. on Jan. 28. His unlocked Volvo SUV was located the next day at Mather Lodge in Petit Jean State Park with his laptop computer and cell phone inside.
No solid clues to his whereabouts have turned up since, his brother Roger Glasgow told ArkansasBusiness.com on Thursday afternoon. Surveillance video from a tobacco store near Morrilton, where employees thought they remembered a man matching John Glasgow's description, turned out to be a false lead, but law enforcement officials have been gathering surveillance video from businesses as far away as Danville.
"Law enforcement is continuing to work the case very hard," Roger Glasgow said, referring to the Conway County Sheriff's Office, the Arkansas State Police, and the FBI, which is "looking at it now as John possibly being the victim of a crime."
There has been no activity on any of Glasgow's bank or credit card accounts since he vanished, and a check of passengers who flew out of Little Rock National Airport early last week "came up empty." Flyers bearing his picture and information on the search are being distributed along bus routes.
A team of about eight volunteers from Texas Equusearch arrived in Arkansas on Tuesday specifically to help in the search for Glasgow. But they first offered their assistance in search and rescue operations following the deadly tornadoes that struck north-central Arkansas that evening, a reprioritization that Roger Glasgow described as "appropriate." By Thursday they were searching mostly south of Petit Jean Mountain on all-terrain vehicles.
The Equusearch group has a mobile headquarters in a large RV, while the Glasgow family is using a farmhouse on Petit Jean offered by Winrock International.
"We're pushing on all fronts and we'll continue pushing until we get this resolved," Roger Glasgow said.
