GREENEVILLE (WATE) – The family of a missing man with a mental condition are pleading for the community’s help.
“Please keep watching for him. Wherever you are, take a minute to look,” said Kathy Barone, the mother of Billy Hurd.
Greeneville Police Department said Hurd, 29, was reported missing December 31. His mother said he was going to a New Year’s celebration in Downtown Greeneville, but never came home and she does not know if he made it to his destination.
Barone said her son has a mental condition that leaves him vulnerable and they’re scared for his safety. Hurd’s cousin Robin Knight said he likes to take side roads and the woods.
“Please, please help us find him,” said family member Rachel Ealey. “It is too cold for him to be out there by himself.”
Hurd was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt, dark-colored jacket, khaki pants and gray slippers. Anyone with any information is urged to contact the Greeneville Police Department at (423) 639-7111.
