Alex Jackson, 33, of Windham, has been missing for nearly four months. Divers have searched the multiple waterways of central and southern Maine. His family members did their own searches and posted “missing person” flyers.
And they continue to demand answers as to the whereabouts of the 33-year-old.
Patty Jackson, Alex Jackson’s mother, said: “I just want him to know if he’s capable of knowing, because I love him more than life.”
Jackson, a farmer, was last seen on May 12 at a friend’s house in Leeds. He never came home that Friday night. Three days later, Jackson’s dog, Hazel, was discovered wandering Gray Road in North Yarmouth, 30 miles from where he was last seen and about 15 miles from his parents’ home in Windham, where he lives.
Authorities searched for his white Dodge Ram 3500, towing a flatbed trailer. The family said Jackson told two people, including his girlfriend, that he was “going to Vermont.”
He has not been seen or heard from since. His mobile phone is dead. His family said he had no debt or credit cards and had $150 in cash.
If Jackson is there and can see this story, the family has a message.
“The message is – I love you. I love you, Alex,” Kayla Jackson said. “If you’re in trouble or want me to come pick you up, I’ll pick you up. You can call my cell phone. You know what my cell phone number is. I’ll do anything for you to come back,” she said.
Making matters worse, through all the heartache, is a social media firestorm with false leads, bogus sightings, and a fraudulent phone call with the man on the other end.
“He says, ‘I’ve got your son here.'” Patty Jackson said, reiterating the details of that phone call.
The call proved to be a hoax.
The Jackson family is in dire need of closure. If anyone has information on the whereabouts of Alex Jackson, they are asked to contact Windham Police at 207-893-2810.
