Washington County resident 65-year-old Gerrial "Gerry" Stone of Cadet has been missing since Oct. 6 at about 11 a.m. when he took out his trash and never came back home.
The investigation of his disappearance has been ongoing since. Washington County Sheriff Andy Skiles said there hasn’t been any reports of any sightings of him so far.
“What we do know is he is very family oriented and normally calls them to let them know where he is going but didn’t this time,” said Skiles. “We have gone out and verified a lot of things since his disappearance. One being that Stone did have his wallet, just not his cell phone. We are waiting to see if any kind of card is being used so we can track him.”
Stone is described as a white male, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 230 pounds, balding with glasses. He was in his early 90s Chevrolet pickup truck. One side of the truck is primer gray and the other side is a navy blue. It has a Missouri State license plate that reads 7SU 168.
Stone has a wife, two step-daughters and grandchildren. According to his step-daughter he is very active in his grandchildren’s lives and is known for attending school functions and ballgames.
There has been a Facebook page created called “Bring Gerrial Stone Home” in hopes of spreading the word on his disappearance.
