Family Of Missing Man Organizing Fundraiser To Increase Reward
Sunday marks exactly 3 weeks since a Lincoln County man went missing. Friends and family are organizing a rally to increase the reward for information on what happened to him.
Michael Gorley's family is offering a $1,000 reward for information on what happened to him, and with the help of a bike rally fundraiser this coming Saturday, they're hoping the reward for answers will be much larger.
"It is a mother's worst nightmare. Three weeks today. Three weeks," said Sandra Hasty, Michael's mother.
She says the 38-year-old father of two was last seen walking toward Junction City along Knob Lick Road in Lincoln County. State police are investigating, but have not released any information on his disappearance.
Hasty says she knows her son is no longer alive.
"They're no longer considering my son a missing person, which means that they have leads into what happened and who was involved," she said.
Hasty says she just wants to find her son's body. The family says all proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to reward the person who brings police to Michael Gorley's body.
"We don't have any answers, and I feel like if the reward was higher, that people involved would start talking on each other," said Michael's friend, Ashley Lear.
The bike rally fundraiser, which includes a silent auction, will kick off at noon this coming Saturday at Junction City Park. It's $15 for one rider, and $5 for a passenger. Anyone who would like to donate to the silent auction can contact the family on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/819765718117782/
Anyone with information on the disappearance is asked to call state police.
