          “We got into his Facebook messenger, got into his Snapchat, just to try to see … And then we got into his messenger and seen five missed calls from Benny. At 3:04 in the morning, finally got through to him,” B.J. tells Dr. Phil in an exclusive interview airing Wednesday. “Five missed and finally, it woke him up and, and that was the end. No phone activity, no nothing after that. So I knew the story ended over there.”

          Benny was Ben’s lifelong friend whom he hung out with regularly. B.J. says when his son first went missing, he suspected the 16-year-old was with Benny on a camping trip. But B.J. says that after seeing the call log, he went to Benny’s house and learned otherwise. He says he when he asked Benny if he knew where Ben was, Benny replied, “’No. We were supposed to go camping, and he never showed up.’”
