Levelland Police searching for missing man; family pleads for help
LEVELLAND, TX (KCBD) - 30-year-old Jacob Wayne Duffee has not been seen or heard from since Sept. 29 and the Levelland Police Department is asking for the public's help in finding him.
Levelland Police Captain Tammy McDonald said authorities are concerned about the safety and well being of Duffee.
On Sunday, the family of Jacob gave an emotional plea to the public for anything leading to his safe return home.
"This is not something he would do," Jacob's younger sister Elizabeth Duffee said. "It's not something any of us would do. We are so close as a family. Something is not right. We know it. We know it in our hearts. We know he would be here right now if he was OK."
Duffee is described to be a white male standing at 5 ft. 4 in., 120 lbs with brown hair and hazel eyes.
Police said a white 2005 Ford F-250 with the words Landscape Tech in green letters, license plate GNT7281, was found by the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office near CR 7570 and University. It was abandoned with the lights on and door open.
The family is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to a safe return of Jacob. His sister said he is a recent graduate of Texas Tech with a bachelors degree in business and works two jobs.
"We just want you to know we are praying for you, Bubba," Elizabeth said. "We are going to find you. If someone is holding you against your will, just let our brother go. We are a close family and this is just not our brother to go missing like this."
Police are asking people to contact them with any information regarding Duffee by calling 806-894-6164.
