Search continues for missing Soddy Daisy man

Posted: Updated:

SODDY DAISY, TN. (WRCB) - David Burgiss has printed and posted hundreds of flyers, hoping they will help bring his son home.

Casey Burgiss hasn't been seen since July 21.

"It would take me days literally to tell of all the rumors I've heard," says the missing 24-year-old's mother. "There are some that are different, there are some that are the same, but they are all that someone murdered him and hid his body."

Burgiss was last seen at a home off Springfield Road in Soddy Daisy. His cousin was the last to hear from him.

"Some people came into that house and took him out of there with ball bats," says Crawley, "that came from Casey's mouth. Then he said I have to go, I'll call you right back. He was never heard from again."

Casey's mom, Karen Crawley, says Casey's friends claim to know what happened, but refuse to come forward.

Several of them have been interviewed by police.

"We've had four detectives on this every day since he was reported missing," says Chief Phil Hamrick. "We have no leads, we don't know where Mr. Burgiss is."

Casey's family takes every tip to police.

Crawley says every dead end makes it more difficult to keep going.

"I can't move on, I can't say my goodbyes, because I have no idea where he is," adds Crawley.

She believes someone, somewhere holds the key.

"You could go to the police and put an end to this, and it's not like someone has to know you're the one that did it," she pleads.

The Soddy Daisy Police Department has used K-9 units to search wooded areas on Mowbray Mountain, after reports Casey Burgiss was buried there.

His family is organizing search parties using Facebook.

If you have any information that could help locate Casey Burgiss, call Soddy Daisy Police at (423) 332-3577.
