Worth County - - The search for a missing Worth County man continues. GBI agents searched the missing man's home and collected evidence Tuesday. The next day, they told us they may execute another search warrant soon. The missing man's wife and son remain in jail on drug charges.
Investigators recovered what appears to be a broom, heavy items and small ones wrapped up in brown paper bags at 33 year old Richard Bentley's home Tuesday. He's been missing for a week and a half.
"We're still looking. We're still hoping that he's still alive but I don't think so," Bentley's mother Pat Hobensack says while crying.
GBI agents continue to piece together the puzzle.
"We're doing a number of interviews, family and friends, neighbors, neighborhood canvasses, that sort of thing," says Mike Lewis.
Bentley's family joined GBI agents Wednesday as they searched woods off Highway 82 near Worth County. They've been doing this for days.
Tuesday, Bentley's wife, Charlene, was arrested on cocaine and gun charges. She's being held in jail along with her son, Christopher Szorcsik also charged with cocaine possession and driving with a suspended license.
"At least they have her where they can find her. I think that she knows where he's at," Bentley's brother Kelly Preston says.
The night Bentley went missing, his step son showed up to the emergency room with injured hands.
"That's why the story she gave us aint right...She said he cut his hand on a conveyer belt at the Family Dollar where he works. We talked to the people there, he didn't do that," Hobensack says.
Bentley's wife never reported him missing.
"I'd really like to look in her face and ask her where he's at."
It's enough to make a distraught mother mad.
"I'm really over it," she says trying to hold back tears.
Tuesday, the GBI search woods behind the Bentley's home with cadaver dogs that are specially trained to find bodies. Bentley's mother and family who traveled from Florida to look for their loved one plan to return home Wednesday night.
