FRAKES, Ky. (WATE) - The Frakes community is working together to help find a man who went missing Sunday, January 29.

Volunteers met Thursday at Chenoa Country Store with their trucks, trailers and four wheelers ready to search the rough terrain to find Gary Sayre, 41.

Richard Webb is one of the many volunteers. "Hopefully we can find him in good shape, you know. You think the worst, but you can't help it. We'd just love to find him," Webb said.

Gary Sayre's wife, Charron, says he went out with friends Sunday. While they were driving home, he got into an altercation and was let out of the car on Highway 190.

She believes he may have just left because of the stress of dealing with their autistic son.

She says that's easier to handle than fearing the worst. "I just want him to be okay, whatever the circumstance is. I want him to be okay," she said.

No one's seen or heard from Sayre since Sunday, which makes his mother, Judy, worried about the outcome of the search.

"I feel that they're going to find him, but I have a feeling it's not going to be good," Judy said.

Volunteers are searching along Highway 190 where the family says Sayre was last seen. They plan on combing at least a 20-mile radius.

"I just hope and pray that we find him in good shape," Webb said.

Family, friends and neighbors say they'll search the roads, woods and mountains on foot, by four wheeler and car every day until they find him.

If you have any information about this case, call the Bell County Sheriff's Office at 606-337-3102.
