UPDATE: A Soddy-Daisy family is desperate to find their loved one.
Jerry Guess, 42, was last seen May 30th. after he and his young brother got into an argument.
Guess was last seen walking on Daisy Dallas Road.
“Everybody has their faults, but we've always supported each other through their faults no matter what,” Cassidy Lane, Guess' niece said. “Hands down they were always there to pick each other right back up.”
Guess' family says they started looking for him at his known hangouts and his last known location by the train tracks.
They filed a missing person report June first, and police began an official search.
“They've searched the hospitals, the morgue, and the mental health places. Of course, those were dead ends,” said his sister Rhonda King.
The family says it's not like Guess just to vanish without talking to his daughter.
“You just want your daddy home right?” King asked.
Guess' mother says they have nothing to go off of. The family has put out a reward for information on his whereabouts.
“So I have closure,” Ruby Waller, Guess' mother, said. “I know he's out there somewhere, and I hope that he's OK. But it's hard to sleep at night not knowing.”
After 11 days of not seeing Guess, the family is still holding onto hope.
“Everybody knows that he's loved, and we're not giving up until he's found,” King added.
“We won't give up we're fighters,” Lane said.
Anyone with information on Guess' whereabouts should call Soddy-Daisy Police at (423) 332-3577.
