Details of Disappearance

Mullinax was last seen in Benton, Arkansas on May 9, 1976. It was Mother's Day and he visited his parents before coming to see his three-month-old daughter. He left, saying he was going to meet someone and would be back in an hour. He has never been heard from again.

A few days after he disappeared, Mullinax's green 1970 AMC Javelin with Arkansas license plates was found parked on a side street off Asher Avenue in Little Rock, Arkansas, with all his belongings, including his wallet and keys, inside it. The location is near his brother-in-law's shop building.

Mullinax was separated from his wife at the time of his disappearance. His family stated it's uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning.

The Benton Police Department did not keep any of their records from before 1981, so Mullinax's original missing persons report has been lost. Few details are available in his case.
