Two Friends Missing Rocklahoma Concert: Update

Cody Parrick


Two Oklahoma men went missing on May 22, 2015. Cody Parrick and Ben Babar decided to purchase tickets for the Rocklahoma concert, which normally lasts for 3 days. They exited the Okmulgee Walmart at 2:00 p.m. on Friday and their tickets were scanned at the Rocklahoma gate that same evening.

Parrick and Babar purchased a 3-day pass for the festival, but something must have went terribly awry. It was estimated that over 30,000 visitors attended the festival just to see Linkin Park and Volbeat. Since the treacherous rainfall had caused flooding in the area, so these bands were unable to perform.

Someone had captured a photo of Cody on Friday around 7:00 p.m. The sheriff investigator, Dallas Lang admitted to speaking with the gentlemen that had taken the photo of Cody, at which time, he admitted that Ben was tagging alongside Cody.

The 2005 Pontiac van is also missing, along with the young men. The Rocklahoma concert takes place annually in Pryor, Oklahoma. Cody and Ben had plans to drive back and forth to the concert, because they had to work on Saturday the 23rd.

Ben Baber lived in Okmulgee, Oklahoma and was last seen wearing an orange shirt with black pants. He is 20 years of age, 6′ tall, and weighs around 320 pounds. He has blond hair and blue eyes.

Cody Parrick is also 20 years old and was last seen wearing a baseball cap, black shirt, and aviator-style sunglasses. He has a history of cerebral palsy and walks with a slight limp. He weighs around 150 pounds and is 5’7″ in height.

Update on Rocklahoma Missing 20 Year Olds

Cody Parrick and Ben Baber was found on Sunday, June 7th 2015. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol was notified of a submerged van, in McIntosh County. When the troopers arrived at the Onapa boat ramp (70 miles south of Pryor), the van appeared to be that of Ben Baber. Both 20 year olds were located inside of the vehicle and the case has not been described, as mysterious or has foul play been linked to the fatalities.

A local, Greg Moore seems to think that the two men may have missed their exits, because of the heavy rainfall.

Rob Zombie posted a comment requesting for information about the boys.
