Reward for information regarding missing man

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

A reward of $3,000 has been offered for information regarding a man who was last seen on November 20th. 

Dozens gathered to pray on the lawn of Little Calvary Church on Monday night for the safety of 45-year-old Montey Thomas.

The Richland County Sheriff's Department says Thomas disappeared November 20th.

“He would do anything you needed him to do,” Thomas' cousin Rodney Wade said. “He just was a loveable person. I mean, he'd give you the shirt off his back. He would do anything you needed.”

Authorities say Thomas was last seen on Bluff Road at Rick's Party Shop. Wade believes the disappearance is highly suspicious.

“It's very suspicious, because he's a Carolina fan,” Wade said. “He would have never missed a game. He would never miss Thanksgiving. He called me every day.”

Family members can only speculate, but they say he recently won $400 and that may have led to foul play.

Now, Wade and nearly 100 other friends and family members are gathering to do whatever they can to do whatever they can. Investigators told the crowd that they've interviewed people of interest, but they have found no red flags.

Authorities say surveillance video doesn't exist and there is no useful cell phone data so far. But they're continuing the search in air, on foot, and on horseback through thick woods nearby. Meanwhile, Friends of Thomas have also begun to collect money to help offer a bigger reward and hoping for a break

“We want the same effort given to Montey as if he was from a millionaire family,” Rev. Charles Epps said.

Anyone with information regarding Thomas' whereabouts should call CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC (1-888-274-6372) to submit a tip anonymously.
