He's been missing for more than two years and family members still don't know why Glen Osborne suddenly vanished.

On March 2nd, 2006, Glen Osborne left his home in the Virgie area of Pike County and never returned.

He told his daughter that he was withdrawing a large amount of money and going to a land auction.

“He didn't know whatever happened to him was going to happen, I don't think he had a clue,” Gina Roberts, Osborne’s daughter.

A few days after Osborne was last seen his truck was found abandoned in the Weddington Square Shopping Center parking lot in Coal Run.

Gina Roberts says one of her father's friends claims he picked Osborne up there.

“He took him to meet someone and this person says he doesn't know who he took him to meet,” Roberts said.

Roberts says this friend has repeatedly changed his story and won't cooperate with them.

Roberts does not believe her father is still alive.

“There's no way that he just walked away and is gone somewhere. You know his mom is now 87 and she is struggling everyday,” Roberts said.

Roberts says she doesn't know why someone would want to kill her father, but says since he disappeared, she's learned about some troubling things in his private life.

Nevertheless, she believes someone out there knows where her father is.

“That's the first thing on your mind when you wake up in the morning and the last thing on your mind when you go to sleep. What happened to him?” Roberts said.

The family is offering a five thousand dollar reward for information that will answer that question.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Glen Osborne, call the state police post in Pikeville at 606-433-7711.
