Woman wants help finding her truck

February 19, 2007

Lee County --Betsy Usry lent her farm truck to Gwen Reslink last week to help her move out of her apartment on South Jefferson.

Reslink had dated Gary Green a couple of times, and she was scared of him, and was moving so he could not find her. Usry said "she took my truck. She drove it home to spend the night with her daughters that live in the apartment complex where she was assaulted."

Tuesday, police say Green attacked Reslink with a knife outside her apartment on South Jefferson.  He forced her inside, tied her up, and told her he would kill her when he returned. He stole Usry's truck and is still on the run. Usry said "don't know where he is gone. Been looking for the truck, and hopeful that someone will see this truck."

Usry's Truck is a white Chevrolet extended bed Silverado, with Georgia Lee County tag 666-XKZ.

Chief Assistant D.A. Greg Edwards says domestic violence cases like this continue to plague South Georgia,  with most abusers very much alike.  Edwards said "there is normally a need for control. Most have been abused as children. Poor communication, no communication. Poor self image on the part of the abuser leads to jealousy. Those kind of things are common characteristics of most abusers."

 Investigators say Green attacked another Sylvester woman in almost the same manner five years ago, and they consider him dangerous. They believe he has left the state.

If you have any information about Gary Green, call CRIMESTOPPERS at 229-436-TIPS.
