WILLACOOCHEE, GA (WALB) - The Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced Wednesday that a $3,000 reward has been posted for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the death of Kiree Hersey.
Governor Nathan Deal's Office, the Atkinson County Sheriff's Office, and the Willacoochee Police Department have established a $3000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the death of Kiree Hersey, 18 years old.
Hersey, 18, was last seen on November 5, 2016, walking in Willacoochee. His body was found on Charlie Harper Road in Willacoochee on February 10, 2017, some three and a half months later.
We interviewed his parents in January when they asked the community for any information about their missing son.
"We're a really tight family," said Buffie Graham, Hersey's mother. "It's just out of character for him not to let us know where he's at."
"He didn't vanish from the face of the earth," said Don Graham, Hersey's step-father. "So, somebody knows."
They say all leads through the Atkinson County Sheriff's Office and GBI have come up cold.
His mom said he was working to get his GED, and had no issues with the law or his family. So, his disappearance puzzles her, especially after missing Thanksgiving, Christmas and his birthday.
If you have information, please contact the GBI office in Douglas at 912-389-4103, the Atkinson County Sheriff's Office at (912) 422-3611, or online.
