ARVADA, Colo. -- The family of an Arvada man is looking for answers after he went missing during the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.

Cody Stallings has lived in the Denver metro area for about 10 years. The 30-year-old works construction in Broomfield and has two young sons.

“He loves to go hiking. He loves to camp,” his mother Jan Stallings said.

His family is hoping he is off camping somewhere and just forgot to tell anyone.

“We just don’t know,” Stallings said. “There are so many things that go through your mind when you’ve got a loved one missing.”

Cody Stallings is 5-foot-10 and weighs about 180 pounds. He has blond hair and blue eyes. He drives a black Cadillac SRX with Colorado license plate number RPQ-212.

His mother said the family first realized Stallings was gone on Tuesday. Jan Stallings was visiting Denver from her home in Utah for work and planned to meet with her son for dinner.

“Tried to contact Cody on Tuesday and wasn’t able to get in touch with him,” she said.

Stallings said she called her son’s roommate and that’s when she really started to worry.

“He also let me know that he had not seen him since Sunday,” she said.

The Arvada Police Department said Stallings was last seen leaving his apartment complex about 4:30 p.m. Feb. 5. He reportedly was watching the Super Bowl with his roommate when he decided to go out.

“He told his roommate that he was going to be around in the area. He was going to watch the Super Bowl somewhere else and he’d be back,” Jan Stallings said.

Stallings and her husband Doss Stallings filed a missing persons report with police on Wednesday. A spokeswoman for the department said cellphone pings and credit card transactions have not been helpful in creating leads.

“All the clues that we’ve had so far have come to a dead end,” Jan Stallings said.

According to other family members, Stallings' phone has been turned off or dead since Tuesday and bank records show the last time he used a debit or credit card was 4:47 p.m. on Feb. 5, about 17 minutes after he was seen leaving his apartment. He withdrew cash from an ATM.

His parents flew to Denver on Friday night to work with detectives. Since then, they have blanketed Arvada with missing signs. Since they live out of state, they have also started a digital search party on Facebook to collect leads.

“We just need to find out where he was at, where he’s been,” Jan Stallings said.

His parents are hoping someone out there saw something. They are holding on to the hope that Stallings will still come home.

“He’s very responsible. He’d never leave his work without some type of notice. He just wouldn’t,” his father said.

Police said Stallings is listed as a missing person and there is no criminal investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 720-898-6757.
