David Cook Missing Person since 2008


It has been 15 years since David Cook of Amsterdam went missing from his residence in Amsterdam. The 55-year -old man disappeared from his ranch in mid-November of 2008.

Cook, was a 34-year employee of the nearby KCPL generating plant at LaCygne, Kansas. On the day of his disappearance, it was a day as normal, Cook had scheduled a contractor’s meeting at the ranch to go over plans for an upcoming project, but the otherwise reliable Cook didn’t show up.

A 200-person search party, including several on horseback, hikers, boat , and the  Highway Patrol helicopter assisted in the search, all to no avail.

After 15  years, the family of David Cook continues to ask for any information or leads you may have to be reported to the Bates County Sheriff’s Office or the Missouri Highway Patrol.

Cook has been missing since November 19th 2008.

Fast forward to 2023 – no new leads, no new information, and at this point, the disappearance of David Cook is considered a cold case. 

Any new leads in the case would be welcomed by the Bates Count Sheriff’s Office.
