Mike Bender is 54, 6′ 1″, and weighs approximately 170 pounds – with blue eyes and brown hair. The family of Mike Bender has reported him missing, and is asking the public for assistance locating him. Bender was last seen at Taylor’s Bar And Spirits in Evansville on Saturday, December 17. The original story is here.



Things have not changed much since the initial reports. According to his sisters who visited the K2 Radio studios this morning ,Bender left the bar on foot, with the alleged intention of walking to the Virginian Hotel in Casper, where he was staying at the time.  He was wearing a blue jean shirt, blue jeans, and light colored blue hoodie, with a dark winter coat. Bender had worked that day, and was wearing steel toed boots. He wears prescription eye glasses, and also has a beard and mustache. A group of Mike's friends and co-workers got together this last Monday to try and replicate the path they thought he may have taken in hopes of finding some clue to his whereabouts. So far nothing has been found.

Mike's sisters Cheryl Kunkel and Dawn Bender joined us this morning to talk about Mike and to make a plea for anyone with ANY information to please come forward.

The family asks that if you have seen Mike Bender or have information on his whereabouts, please contact Casper Police – at 307-235-8278.
