We are spending some time working on the story of Gene Lysle for the next few weeks. He is the focus this year for our Missing Persons Vigil on June 13 in Wellsville, Ohio. We will, of course, be doing stories about Louise Davis and Tracy Hill also, but Wellsville was chosen as the sight for our vigil this year because that is where Gene is from.
In this first picture you see Sherrill Jackson (Gene's mom) and Mary Jackson (Gene's sister). They stand before the house Gene was living in before he disappeared.
Mary said she and her brother worked together for 6 years at the same place. It was painfully obvious that both of these ladies truly missed Gene.
It has been almost 6 years since Gene disappeared. Sherrill has walked roads, searched towns, even found herself in areas that scared her in an attempt to find her son. She has had tee shirts made with his picture on it.
A Mother's Search For Her Son
Our vigil is on June 13 at the Gazeebo in Wellsville, Ohio. CCFHV has asked the commissioners of Columbiana County to make June Missing Person's Awareness Month because our three from this county all went missing in June. I hope they decide to do this. Please make plans to attend this vigil and lend your support to these three brave families as they continue their search for their loved ones.
