Mountain Cold Case - Glen Osborne - 2006

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.

    Did phone records get checked to see who he had called that day? or who called him? Who knowed of the money? who had copies of the truck keys? What about cameras around the businesses the truck was at?How was the money withdrawn/bank video.Any other transactions after that?What about the so called friend any money spending spree on his record.Who are the so called friends/friends? For the last one to be with would seem to be the number one suspect? Dont know who,but where did they take him?

    I don't know who this friend is but, if what the family says is true, this person knows more than he is telling. Unfortunately you have to have evidence. I am sure this guy is on the KSP suspect list. There just crippled by a lack of evidence. I hope justice is someday served. Good Day, Joe.
