RICHMOND COUNTY, GA (WFXG) -

A local family needs your help looking for their loved one. Family members say 24-year-old Byron Speller hasn't been seen since last Friday. 

Friday, July 6th, his family searched for him around 11 a.m. They plan to possibly pick the search back up Saturday. 

Byron was last seen wearing a white shirt, blue jeans, and boots. He is 6'1", weighs 176 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes. 

Here's a timeline to his disappearance: 

  • Richmond County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Sgt. William McCarty told FOX 54 he was last seen at the Kroger on 3435 Wrightsboro Road around 5 p.m. on Friday, June 29th.
  • A deputy found his burgundy 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer a little more than five miles away in the 2200 block of Lumpkin Road on Saturday, June 30th.
  • He was officially reported missing by a family member on Tuesday, July 3rd.

Sgt. McCarthy confirmed to FOX 54 that circumstances of this case are "out of the ordinary" and the agency is following up on all leads.

He added that at this time, there is not a specific location they're looking in, as this case is still in the investigative stage. 

Byron is a father and has many loved ones, as indicated by posts his family made on social media. If you have any information that can lead authorities or his loved ones to where he is, please call Richmond County Sheriff's Office Investigator Ronald Sylvester at 706-821-1020 or 821-1080.
