Family of missing man fears the worst

BARBOURVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - Beverly Foley has so many fond memories of November 9th. It was the day she was born…and the day 27 years ago she gave birth to her son….Jonathan.

“I miss him terribly. I got this morning..each day gets worse..instead of better,” said the missing man’s mother Friday.

Since the national guardsman was serving his country in Iraq last year….and involved in other activties before…this would have been the first birthday in several years that the two would have spent together.

“I’m hoping something today…with it being his birthday..will bring it to closure,” said Foley.

Foley was last seen Tuesday heading to Lee’s Food Mart in Barbourville. His truck was found covered in mud several miles away…near a factory close by Knox County Hospital.

His family says what was found inside that truck was very unusual.

“The seat was kind of scooted up. The driver’s seat. He’s a very tall person,” said Foley.

The Foleys say police told them they were planning to search the truck and gather evidence on Friday. Police were also said to be gathering surveillance video from the area where the truck was found. His family meanwhile is hoping for the best but fearing the worst.

“I’m feeling lost without him. I’m afraid he won’t be coming home. I hope he will,” said Charles Foley, Jr., the missing man’s father.
