Andrew Lufkins, known by many as “AJ”, was last seen on the night of April 7, 2010 outside the American Legion bar in Sisseton, South Dakota. He hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

According to witnesses who were at the bar that night, Lufkins had gotten into a verbal/physical altercation with another man. Foul play is suspected.

Andrew Lufkins is missed. Loved ones have a Facebook page In Loving Memory of Andrew “A.J” Lufkins. Although he hasn’t been located, many who know him presume he is no longer alive.

One family member published a comment in September 2012.

I know u & dad will be watching over us. Me & Ida really miss u both. Pray we find answers soon. I’ll see u soon on the other side.

The same family member wrote about her frustrations of not knowing where AJ is;

Everybody seems to have forgotten u. No one speaks ur name anymore. WTH? Wat if it was their son or daughter? I get so angry as each day passes. No one hears my cries. I just wish this pain would go away. I dont know wat to do anymore.

I can understand her frustrations. It’s true alot of men who go missing don’t get the media attention that others might receive. This is why I try to post people of different ages, genders, races and backgrounds. I think everyone’s family deserves answers and closure.
