UPDATE: The family of the man who was hit and killed on Highway 153 in July is desperate for answers.

They're offering a reward for any information about what led to 51-year-old Jeffrey Harris' death. His sister hopes someone will come forward.

Susan Dover wants to know who crashed into her brother on Highway 153 and then took off.

"He was left on the side of the road to die. That is not a death that I would wish upon anyone. Anyone,” Dover said.

Dover says it's unclear why her brother was walking on 153 late at night between Jersey Pike and Shallowford Road.

Chattanooga police discovered his body on the grass median side of a concrete barrier.

Nearly a month has gone by and Dover is still without answers.

"I'm sure it was an accident. I'm sure it was, but you need to call and let us know. He had a family. He had five children. He had a brother. He had a sister. He is going to be missed,” Dover said.

A reward for anyone who has information about the case is being offered by the family. Police are also looking for witnesses to the deadly hit-and-run crash.

"As insignificant as you may think it is, it's not. They want anything that anyone has to offer,” Dover said.

It's so they think can find out what happened and why.

"I'll never have peace missing my brother. I don't think anyone will, but we just need closure,” Dover said.

If you have any information about the deadly hit and run, call the Chattanooga Police Department at (423) 698-2525.

You can also submit a tip using the CPD app. Anyone with information can remain anonymous.
