BURKE COUNTY, Ga. (WJBF) – If you know something, say something. 

Simon Powell has been missing for two years from Burke County, Georgia. 

His family is offering up to 15,000 dollars in reward for any information leading to an arrest of person(s) responsible. 

If you have any information, please contact the Burk Co. Sheriff’s Office at 706-554-2133

NewsChannel 6 first told you about Powell, who was 63 when he disappeared, in June of 2016. He left his home in the 6300 block of River Road in Burke County June 1, 2016 and never returned. The next day, investigators with the Burke County Sheriffs Office located Powell’s Ford Pickup truck on Wilson Road.

“The family said it wasn’t uncommon for him to go on a walk in the afternoon,” said Sgt. Cameron Hampton, a Burke County Sheriff’s Office Investigator. “But for him to have been in his vehicle that late at night and then not coming home was strange.”

Powell’s family also tell us that he had too much to willingly leave behind including a lumber business. So, they are hoping the Augusta billboard and a second billboard on the Waynesboro Bypass gets people talking.
