A mother's nightmare: Hartford's son missing for eight years

August 25, 2011

It's been eight years since former Big Spring resident Deanna Hartford saw her son, Arlin Bynum, but that hasn't stopped her and other family members from continuing to seek closure in his missing person case.

“We want to know what happened to our son and why,” Hartford said. “We are over the hate, anger and the bitterness we have felt for more than seven years. I know, in my heart, Arlin would not want me to feel that way. He was so full of life and everyone was his friend. He loved people.

“Most people don't know how it feels to lose a child in this manner. You are never at peace and you are always wondering what has happened. Are they ever coming home?”

Bynum was last seen Aug. 14, 2003, in the vicinity of the San Franciscan Bar and Grill, located in downtown Big Spring. According to police reports, witnesses claim he left the establishment late in the evening, supposedly accompanied by another man who has yet to be identified.

Bynum’s truck was later found near the bar.
