The Lafayette County Crimestoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information that would help them find a local man missing for more than two weeks.
Investigators say McKenzie Darrell Frierson, 27, has not contacted his family since Jan. 31.
From the West Springhill community, he is black, 5-feet, 9-inches tall, 210 pounds, with a full beard and mustache. He was last seen in the Brittany Woods subdivision.
Investigator Scott Mills said his department has been chasing down tips and leads, however none have panned out and Frierson, known as “Rell,” is still missing.
“The Sheriff’s Department and his family are concerned he may have met with foul play with the time lapse being so long,” Mills said this morning.
Mills hopes the reward will entice anyone with information on Frierson’s whereabouts to come forward.
“If he’s OK we really want him to get in touch with his mother so she stops worrying,” Mills said.
Anyone with information on Frierson’s whereabouts should call Crimestoppers at 234-8477 or the LCSD at 234-6421. (February 20, 2013, Page 2)
