ACCPD continues to investigate the disappearance of Joshua Jackson and Derrick Ruff and
needs the public’s assistance in locating the men who were last seen together December 18th
2018. Ruff was reported missing on December 20th and Jackson on December 21st of 2018.
Over the last two weeks, ACCPD detectives have followed up on dozens of leads. They
have spoken with family and friends in an effort to determine Jackson’s and Ruff’s whereabouts
and states of mind. In cooperation with the Gwinnett County Police Department (GCPD), multiple
searches have been conducted including the use of K-9 and aerial support. The vehicle they were
last seen in together was located by GCPD in an isolated section of a neighborhood. GCPD
investigators processed the vehicle, and while ACCPD detectives are awaiting the final report,
nothing that raised suspicion was noted about the vehicle. ACCPD also spent several days with
GCPD detectives and investigators following up leads in an effort to locate Jackson and Ruff.
“From the start of this case,” stated Derek Scott, lead investigator in the case, “we have
relied heavily on the public’s assistance and again ask that anyone with information about the
whereabouts of Joshua and Derrick to contact the ACCPD.”
A Crime Stoppers reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to the
location of Jackson and Ruff. Crime Stoppers Tip Line-706-705-4775.
