    VA - Willard Hurley, 61, Leesburg, 19 July 2015

    Willard Hurley Jr.

    Billy Hurley III


    PGA Tour pro announces that his father is missing, asks the public for help
    In an emotional press conference on Tuesday before the start of the Quicken Loans National tournament, PGA Tour player Billy Hurley III announced that his father, Willard Hurley Jr., is missing and asked the public for help finding him.

    According to Hurley, Willard left home nine days ago with some clothes, cash and drove away in his 1998 Ford F150 truck on Sunday, July 19th. No one has heard from him since. Willard has no history of mental illness, according to Billy, and his mother has filed a missing persons report with local authorities in Leesburg, Virginia, where they live, on Monday.

    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."

    Hopefully he will return home quickly & safely. Or at least let the people who love him know where he is.

    "Hurley's credit card was used again in southwest Arkansas last week, leading investigators to believe he stayed at the Relax Inn at 1100 N. Constitution Ave. in Ashdown for at least one night."

    "The clerk there told KSLA News 12 that he checked out on the morning of July 23. He paid cash for the room, and he was alone."

    "The clerk also said he appeared to be in good spirits."
