Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Cook was last seen around 03.00 a.m. near Pedro's Bar outside of Brushfork, West Virginia on January 14, 1993.
Witnesses stated that he was walking toward U.S. Route 52.
His friend, Brenda Lambert, went missing from Bluewell five months earlier, on July 26, 1992. Authorities believe the cases may be connected. Cook's disappearance was sudden and without a trace.
In 2003, police received a tip the bodies of Lambert and Cook could be found in a local pond. An attempt to drain the pond was unsuccessful, but the department brought in a diver and, later, specialized underwater video equipment to search the murky depths. No bodies or evidence were found.
