    GA - Joe Akridge, 53, Columbus, 28 March 2015

    The family of a Columbus man who has been missing is offering a $2,500 reward to help find him.

    53-year-old Joe Akridge was last seen when he left his home on Valleybrook Road and walked to the Dollar General on Amber Drive on March 28. Akridge does not have a car and has not been seen or heard from since that time.

    Akridge is mentally impaired and functions at a 3rd grade cognitive level, said police. He is also on prescription heart and blood pressure medications. His family says he acts more lost and confused when he does not take his medicine.

    It has been one year since her brother Joe Akridge vanished and Patricia Koonce said she is frustrated and “very depressed.”

    “Somebody must know something,” she said on Thursday.

    A meeting will be held 3 p.m. Saturday in his home at 5827 Valleybrook Road in Columbus. Flyers will be handed out to those who wish to help. A vigil will be held at 6 p.m.
