BEDFORD (WSLS 10) - Investigators are using different strategies to solve a 15-year-old missing persons case.

According to initial police reports, James Walker was last seen by the Food Lion in Bedford.

"I have dreams about dad all the time," says Bobby Walker, James Walker's son. "It's just like waking up. It breaks your heart."T

The Bedford Police Department, Bedford County Sheriff's office, and state police are looking at this case from the very beginning.

In addition to investigating this case as a disappearance, investigators said there was "probable cause" of murder.

'We're trying to determine what happened so we're working all angles," says Chief Todd Foreman, Bedford police chief. "Until we have all the facts we don't want to narrow it down to one thing."

Investigators aren't telling us a lot of details but did say they're using different strategies and their investigation has led them to other places in the county.

"We don't want to release information on what we're doing we could jeopardize what's happening," says Foreman. "We could make people be silent."
