SC - Tyrone Donaldson, 40, Blackville, 21 July 2011
The family of 40-year-old Tyrone Donaldson is offering a $3,000 reward for information leading authorities to him, Blackville Police Chief John Holston announced Friday.
Donaldson was reported missing on July 21. The Blackville man's vehicle was later recovered in Orangeburg near the intersection of John C. Calhoun Drive and Broughton Street.
Earlier this week, State Law Enforcement Division spokesperson Kathryn Richardson said authorities suspect foul play in his disappearance.
He had told family members he was running an errand and would return within a couple of hours. He hasn't been seen since.

From November 2013:
A Blackville man was sentenced to life in prison after a jury convicted him of murder last week.
Sammie Lee Gerrick, 42, was found guilty Thursday afternoon of murdering Tyrone Anthony Donaldson in July 2011 after a four-day trial at the Barnwell County Courthouse...
Waters depicted Gerrick as a desperate man who needed money to pay his bills and probation fines. He said Gerrick knew Donaldson had money and lured him into a trap... Waters told the jury Gerrick had tricked Donaldson into thinking he had a safe full of money buried in the woods off Sunshine Road a little ways outside of town. Waters said Donaldson and Gerrick went to a wooded area and started digging a hole, a hole that would become Donaldson's grave. Gerrick attacked, tied up and "choked out" Donaldson, Waters said, before burying him, possibly still alive, in the hole he'd helped dig. A forensic pathologist told the jury the cause of death was suffocation.
