Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Ball was last seen at his Kansas, Oklahoma home on September 27, 1988. He left the residence in a green Dodge in the middle of the night after someone drove up outside and honked. Ball never returned and has never been heard from again. While his wife of forty years was at work the next day, someone came to the residence and took some of Ball's clothes and a puppy.
The day before his disappearance, Ball told his brother-in-law he was coming into some money and, if all went well, he would be set for life. It's unclear whether this has anything to do with his disappearance.
Ball never signed up for Social Security benefits when he became eligible, and his family believes he was murdered. Police have searched several wells for his remains, but his body has never been found. The prime suspect in his disappearance is now dead.
Ball was declared legally dead in 1996. His case remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 25% of missing children in Europe. By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends. Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
