Family, friends seek help finding missing Paris man

By  | 

PARIS, TX -- Family and friends of a missing Paris man are now pleading for the public's help to find him.

For nearly a week Paris Police have been searching for 29-year old Troy Gray, Jr.

"That's my baby," said Troy's mom Annie Gray. "I haven't seen or heard from him since Thursday. Somebody knows where he is, somebody knows what happened to him. I would like to see him again."

Gray was last seen Friday, April 11th around two a.m. Hours later Lamar County Deputies say they found Gray's burned vehicle on County Road 14760. His family and friends say that discovery leads them to believe there's foul play involved in Gray's disappearance.

"We know it's not good and we are praying, hoping for the best," said close friend Galatha Williams.

Gray's family is asking for the publics help to find their loved one.

"Call in and let somebody know, his life is depending on it," said Williams. "There's a lot of people that care about him and love him and want him home."

"I've contacted the Texas Rangers, sent emails, we've made flyers, we've posted pictures," said close friend Kristal Conley.

Investigators are continuing to follow leads, but say they have no reason to believe to foul play.

"As of right now we have nothing to link him to any foul play or anything like that," said Paris Police Officer Curtis Garrett.

Gray is described a 6'2", around 200-pounds with black hair and brown eyes. If you have any information about where he might be call Paris police.

If you'd like to help, a search party will meet at the Home Depot parking lot, Friday at 8 a.m.
