SC - Montey Thomas, 45, Columbia, 28 Nov 2014
Family of missing man believes cash prize led to foul play
Dozens gathered to pray on the lawn of Little Calvary Church on Monday night for the safety of 45-year-old Montey Thomas. The Richland County Sheriff's Department says Thomas went missing two Fridays ago and hasn't been seen since. “He would do anything you needed him to do,” Rodney Wade said. “He just was a loveable person. I mean, he'd give you the shirt off his back. He would do anything you needed.” Authorities say Thomas was last seen on Bluff Road at Rick's Party Shop. Wade, Thomas' cousin, believes the disappearance is highly suspicious.“It's very suspicious, because he's a Carolina fan,” Wade said. “He would have never missed a game. He would never miss Thanksgiving. He called me every day.” Family members can only speculate, but they say he recently won $400 and that may have led to foul play. Now, Wade and nearly 100 other friends and family members are gathering to do whatever they can to do whatever they can. Investigators told the crowd that they've interviewed people of interest, but they have found no red flags. Authorities say surveillance video doesn't exist and there is no useful cell phone data so far. But they're continuing the search in air, on foot, and on horseback through thick woods nearby. Meanwhile, Friends of Thomas have also begun to collect money to help offer a bigger reward and hoping for a break...Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
"When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

Still listed as missing. No new info."If you are lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it."

Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

Montey has been missing for two years now.
After 2 years, the search for a missing man continues on
It's been two years since a Columbia man has been seen or heard from and his family continues to plead for answers.
Montey Thomas was last seen at Rick's Party Shop on Bluff Road and is believed to have left with someone he knows.
While his family believes he's dead, they want to know what may have happened to him.
"We're hoping to find out what happened to him and to find out where he is so he can at least have a decent burial,” Dana Thomas, Montey’s sister said.
