Two things to suggest:
If he had his Board and an advancement form was turned in, the Council
office should have record of it. Check with them, especially since
you know the date of the Scoutmaster Conference. Hopefully it's just
a case of his book not being signed off.
Secondly, I seem to remember a post about an extension that was
granted when the delay was due to a paper work foul-up on the part of
the adults. The Scout had met all his requirements on time. Sorry I
don't remember when, but I've only been on the list since March, so
you could look through the logs from March on, unless another poster
out there can remember better than I.

I am a new scoutmaster and every Monday night for the last couple months I have
been working closely with one scout that is close to earning his Eagle....
I happened to notice that his Board of Review for Life had not been signed off.
he couldn't remember if he had had one or not.
The problem is that he turns 18 in January.
1. What options are available since clearly the Troop administration is
(primarily) to blame for this mistake?
2. Does BSA or National allow extensions for instances like this? He will have
meet of the other requirements before his eighteenth birthday.
Any thoughts or insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
