Montey Thomas was last seen at Rick’s Party Shop on Bluff Road.

Thomas was believed to have left with someone he knew.

His family has long believed he is dead, but they want to know what happened to him.

“We’re hoping to find out what happened to him and to find out where he is so he can at least have a decent burial,” Dana Thomas, Montey’s sister said to WIS in 2016 on the two-year anniversary of his disappearance.
