PAPER TRAILS: Musician who went missing in Little Rock still absent; 'The Bachelor' in Arkansas

updated: 11/07/2016 5:45 a.m. Discuss

MISSING: Little Rock native Joe Cripps, a drummer who earlier performed with the Little Rock-based Gunbunnies and the Grammy-winning band Brave New Combo of Denton, Texas, hasn't been seen in more than two weeks, reported The Associated Press recently. Little Rock police asked Tuesday for the public's help in finding Cripps, who moved back to Little Rock last year but regularly returns to north Texas. Word of Cripps' disappearance first spread via his friends on Facebook, where the drummer was active online and his latest posts appear to have been made Oct. 18 or 19. He was last seen Oct. 19 leaving White Water Tavern in Little Rock's Stifft Station neighborhood, where he asked someone in the bar to call a cab for him. Cripps' brother James said the missing musician was scheduled to perform Oct. 21 but missed the gig, which, he added, wasn't like Cripps. He added that he doesn't believe Cripps left town in a vehicle; his is not running and is in the shop.
