On February 28, 2006, Travis Dewayne Roberson was last seen on Dickson Street in downtown Fayetteville, Arkansas. He was with friends, and they were getting ready to celebrate Mardi Gras. Roberson became ill, and his friends advised him to return to their vehicle and wait for everyone to arrive. However, when they arrived at the vehicle, Roberson had vanished. He was never seen or heard from again, and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance remain unknown.
Roberson’s family initially reported him missing to the Siloam Springs Police Department. The department claimed they transferred the case to the Fayetteville Police Department on March 8, five days after the report was filed, but there is no record of the transfer with the Fayetteville police.
Roberson’s mother filed a separate missing persons report with the Fayetteville police, who did not investigate because they believed the Siloam Springs police were looking into Roberson’s disappearance. Meanwhile, the Siloam Springs Police Department mistook the Fayetteville Police Department for an investigation.
Roberson is wanted on two warrants: one for failing to pay fines stemming from a forgery conviction, and another for failing to appear in court on charges of being an accomplice to drug delivery. He was scheduled to testify in a federal narcotics trial, and one theory holds that he was murdered to silence him. His disappearance has yet to be solved.
A blue checkered/plaid button-down shirt, blue jeans, tan New Balance shoes, and a green Corona baseball cap completed the look.
Roberson has epilepsy and requires medication, which he does not have with him.
Caucasian Male . Brown eyes and brown hair. Roberson has a snake on his right arm, a face with his tongue out on his right arm, the letters “FTW” on the back of his neck, a bearded man with red eyes on his right arm at the shoulder, and other tattoos on his neck, left elbow, and left forearm. This case summary includes a photo of one of the bearded men’s tattoos.
