Jay Gentry was reported missing to Woodstock Police on Sunday just before 10 p.m., along with his 2011 Honda Element.
“Jay was last seen on Sunday, Sept. 22, at his residence around 7 p.m. in the evening,” Woodstock Police Sgt. Randy Milligan wrote in a news release Tuesday. “Concern for Jay arose as he has failed to show for work so far this week or make contact with and family or friends.”
Jessica Gentry, the wife of the missing man, said the search is “time urgent,” and she asked for the community’s help to find him.
“Right now he has no identification, no money, no cellphone, no nothing; he’s just got his vehicle,” she said Tuesday. “We’re just trying to get the word out.”
The missing man is described as a white man, 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing 225 pounds, with blue-green eyes, brown hair and a short beard.
“Jay left his residence driving his dark gray 2011 Honda Element bearing Georgia tag AUS 1259,” Milligan wrote. “The Woodstock Police Department is asking that if you see Jay or his vehicle that you contact 911 to have an officer make contact with him and notify the Cherokee County Dispatch Center at (678) 493-4080.”
Gentry said her husband was wearing a blue T-shirt, ripped jeans, brown Crocs and glasses, when she last saw him.
“It’s possible that he may have parked the vehicle in a park, and gone off on a trail. We have notified all of the rangers, and we’ve notified the hospitals,” she said. “We’re really grasping at straws, (of him) possibly going north, but I’m not sure where (he) would go or why.”
Cherokee County Dispatch put out a message to surrounding agencies and a missing person all-points bulletin, according to the incident report.
