A russell county man has been missing for more than seven years, and on the eve of his 28th birthday, Chris Gregory's family is asking for help.
"I never thought the night he left that he wouldn't be back," says Chris Gregory's Mom, Rhonda Gregory. "It's still just like it happened yesterday."
January 31, 2006 was the night Chris Gregory was last seen. He was with friends at a party, Rhonda says. The friends later told police Chris left them to go to the Key Village shopping center in Russell Springs. At the time, no one knew why. The next morning, Chris's car was found parked in the shopping center's lot, but Chris was nowhere to be seen.
"I got to bed at night thinking what did they do to him? Did they leave him laying, did they torture him, is he alive?" Rhonda says.
The same year Chris went missing, police found his driver's license in a ditch in Russell County.
"Other than that, nothing else. There's been nothing. And I know he didn't disappear into thin air."
Friday, March 23, Chris would have turned 28. Instead of planning a birthday party, his mom is planning a prayer vigil.
"I just wish somebody would help me," Rhonda says through her tears. "Tell me something. I mean anything."
The vigil for Chris Gregory is Saturday night at eight in Russell County at the Mighty Dollar parking lot.
