Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
John was at home on Sunday night, 1/27/08. His car was seen leaving his Little Rock home on Monday morning around 5:15am, 1/28/08. Sometime before leaving his residence, Glasgow, reportedly vice president and chief financial officer of Little Rock’s CDI Contractors, wrote a bank account number and the code to a personal safe on a pad of paper, which he left, along with some checks to be mailed, on a table inside the home. A .22-caliber rifle was missing from the residence. A cell phone ping later that day indicated his phone was in the vicinity of Petit Jean Mountain (state park about 95 miles from Little Rock).
His car was found unlocked the next day at the Mather lodge on Petit Jean with valuables still inside. His personal belongings including his cell phone, wallet and laptop were all found on the backseat of the unlocked car.
Several days of thorough searches of the mountain by SAR teams, dogs, helicopter, and volunteer search teams discovered no trace of John. Search dogs detected Glasgow’s scent where the vehicle had been parked, but nowhere else.
John was a happy and devoted family man at the height of a very successful career. He was putting the finishing touches on a large financial deal involving the multimillion dollar construction company for which he served as Chief Financial Officer, and another major company in Little Rock. The deal he was brokering would have had significant financial benefits to the partners in the construction firm. The deal fell through after he disappeared.
In 2011 there was a possible breakthrough. A twice convicted felon, up for parole, claimed to obtain clues about Glasgow's disappearance and know where he was buried. Jonathan Brawner said he had been recruited by "thugs from Malvern" to whom he owed money to help bury Glasgow in a bean field near England in Lonoke County. No immunity or plea bargains were offered to Brawner in connection with the Glasgow case. Numerous searches lead to nothing.
