HARLAN COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - He was last seen more than two years ago. Now Kentucky State Police and his family are pleading again for help to find him.

Robert Hoskins, 28, disappeared from Harlan County in July of 2011.

State police are still looking for him and say they need the public's help.

His mother Angela Wolfgang says it is hard not knowing where her son is. She says she talked to her son Robert Hoskins everyday.

"He called me everyday and I told him I loved him, and he told me he loved me," said Wolfgang.

She has not heard his voice in more than two years.

"I really miss him. This has traumatized me," Wolfgang said.

Family says he was last seen on July 1st, 2011.

"His little girl meant the world to him. He wouldn't leave his little girl," Wolfgang said.

She says Hoskins' daughter is now five years old and misses her daddy. "She misses him everyday," Wolfgang said.

Family members say Hoskins was last seen in the Bledsoe area of Harlan County, but state police believe he was on Kentucky 221 in Bell County when he disappeared.

"We've not given up on this search for Robert Hoskins, and that's why we're reaching out to the community and asking for any assistance for his whereabouts, where he may be located," said Trooper Shane Jacobs.

The family is offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to finding Hoskins.

"We really need to know where's he's at, and it's just really heartbreaking," Wolfgang said.

"Even though two years have passed, since Robert Hoskins was reported missing, it's not too late to call Post," Trooper Jacobs said.

Angela Wolfgang hopes that call comes soon, so she can find her son.

"It would mean everything in the world to me," she said.

She says she cannot bear going through another year not knowing.

Anyone with information should call the Kentucky State Police Post in Harlan at 606-573-3131. All tips can remain anonymous.
