Joseph's mother, Pat Pike, said she just wants to know what happened to her son. “He was a good young’un. He could have had a heart attack, he could have fallen and hit his head. We just don’t know one way or the other." Mrs. Pike said Joe made friends easily and never met a stranger. She said if people saw him walking from their home on McBride Road to the crossroads, they would give him a ride there or back home.

UPDATE: A hunter found Joseph Carl Pike's remains April 12, 2013 in a wooded area of South Parkview Trail in Flat Rock. The University of North Texas identified Pike's bone fragment with the aid of a DNA sample and medical records. No other remains were found. The cause of Pike's death is still under investigation.
Becky has been Missing since 10-1-06. The person of interest in this case has been telling people that Becky has been found and buried. THIS IS NOT TRUE. BECKY IS STILL MISSING.
Her family was put into the CODIS system a year ago. They still think of Becky every day and wonder where she is and what happened to her. Becky's family and friends are still looking for her and do not intend on giving up their search. Not knowing is the hardest part. No matter what the circumstances... They want to bring Becky home.
Becky’s story is like so many others. She was a grown woman trying to find happiness and love. This quest led her to an involvement with a man her family did not approve of and a life they would never have wanted for her. It was a life she was trying to improve when she was reported missing.
Facts of the case: Becky was reported missing by her live in "BOYFRIEND". He told investigators, “She left walking. She was going to church. She never returned.”
The “Boyfriend”, was no stranger to Midland Police and was on probation at the time Becky disappeared. He has since violated his parole. During the investigation he was ask if he would be willing to take a polygraph test. He said yes, but shortly afterwards changed his mind. He has never taken a polygraph test and is still considered a person of interest.
