More than one year after a Knox County man disappeared, his family is doubling a reward.

Cecil Baker's family is offering $10,000 for information!

Darlene Rice has not seen or heard from her brother, Cecil Baker, since May 1st, 2011.

"He meant a lot to me, more than anything," Rice said.

She says the family last saw him at a relative's house in Barbourville. He told them he was going to Michigan to pick-up his daughter. He never made it there.

"Every day is misery. Every day of my life is misery. I raised him, and it's really hard," Rice said.

She believes something bad has happened to him.

"He knows my health was bad, and he knows I have heart disease and everything, so I know my brother is not voluntarily missing. He would've called me," Rice said.

Rice says she recently found out she does not have much longer to live, making it more urgent to her to find out what happened to her brother Cecil Baker.

The family is increasing the reward for information to $10,000.

Kentucky State Police detectives are investigating Baker's disappearance. They also ask anyone with information to come forward.

"It's never too old or too late to contact us with any information. At this time, we have very little to go on," said Trooper Shane Jacobs.

Darlene Rice says she wants to find her brother before she dies.

"That's all we want is to find him," Rice said.

State police say Baker was seen in Corbin on May 1st, 2011 after he left Barbourville. He was driving a light green, 1994 GEO with the license plate 474-CDH.

Anyone with information on Baker's disappearance should call the KSP Post in Harlan.
