    Chipley and James were last seen together at a home in the 1300 block of 13th Street in Ashland, Kentucky on October 4, 1984. Their whereabouts are still unknown. Chipley has a pale birthmark on his back over his left shoulder. James' eyes are grayish blue and he has a scar on the right side of his waist. They may be in need of assistance.

    Ashland police have open file on 30-year-old case

    ASHLAND — A national group that focuses on missing children is hoping the 30th anniversary of the disappearance of two Kentucky kids will help lead to their whereabouts.

    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Alexandria, Virginia has been publicizing the cases of Chipley Sanders and James Bess of Ashland.

    Sanders and Bess were each 13 when they disappeared from a group home on Oct. 4, 1984. The organization says the boys ran away and haven’t been heard from since.

    Sanders has a pale birthmark on his back over his left shoulder. Bess has grayish blue eyes and he has a scar on the right side of his waist.

    The Ashland Police Department also has an open file on the two boys.

    Hi MissyMoo!!
    It can be a kind of foster home or drug rehab depending on the circumstances.

    In this case, sounds like a kind of orphanage for older kids with issues.

    So are you thinking the lads may not have even left the home?
    Something could have happened to them there?
