PRYOR, Okla. – The search continues for two missing Oklahoma men.

Cody Parrick and Ben Babar, both 20, were last seen at the ‘Rocklahoma’ music festival on May 22.

The two best friends had planned to attend all three days of the festival in Pryor, Oklahoma.

Officials say they arrived for the first night of shows, but only Cody’s ticket was scanned.

Police say Cody and Ben were planning on driving back and forth to the event each day.

They were reported to be traveling in a silver 2005 Pontiac Montana van with Muscogee Creek Nation license plate B8E23.

Cody stands 5’7″ tall, weighs 150 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. He was last seen wearing a gray ball cap, black shirt and Aviator-style sunglasses.

He walks with a limp due to Cerebral Palsy and has a speech impediment.

Ben stands 6’0″ tall, weighs 320 pounds and has blue eyes and blonde hair. He was last seen wearing an orange shirt and black pants.

Officials say there has been no activity on their bank or credit cards.

There are also several rumors circulating on social media about the men’s disappearance.  Police are asking anyone with information to contact them directly.

Officials say the recent heavy rainfall has hampered the search efforts.

Nearly 10,000 people have joined the Facebook group ‘Team Cody and Ben‘ to share information in hopes of locating the men.

Rob Zombie has even got involved with the search efforts.  He recently shared a photo of his band and Cody at a concert, asking anyone with information to come forward.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation opened a partial investigation into Cody and Ben’s disappearance last week.

If you have any information on the men’s whereabouts, call the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office at (918) 756-4311.
