    MS - Gerry Manley - 24 years old - Meridian - 12 Feb 2010

    MERIDIAN Authorities in Neshoba County and family members from Meridian are currently trying to locate Gerry Manley, a 24-year old man from Meridian who has been reported missing since last week.

    According to Manley's mother, Dale Sims, Manley, was last heard from when he called from a Philadelphia convenience store between 11 p.m. and midnight on Feb. 12. The fact he called from Philadelphia and the way the conversation ended abruptly has Sims worried.

    "He had called his girlfriend back here in Meridian to come and pick him up and then in mid sentence and with what she called alarm in his voice he hung up," said Sims.

    Sims said Manley's last words to his girlfriend were, "I gotta get off! I gotta get off!"

    Sims said she filed a missing person report with the Philadelphia Police Department Monday but that report didn't go through because Sims had left off some information. She went back Wednesday and re-filed the report.

    "We have the report and all the information they gave us has been entered on the National Crime Information Center system," said Philadelphia Police Chief Dickie Sistrunk Thursday afternoon.

    Despite that Sims hasn't stopped looking for her son.

    "All day Monday and Wednesday I went up and down Hwy. 19 looking for any sign of him," said Sims. "This is not like him."

    Sims said her son always kept her posted on where he was and what he was doing. They, she said, may not have seen each other every day but barely a day didn't go by that her son didn't call her to just catch up. For him not to contact her after almost a week really is out of character for him, she said.

    Sims said her son, who had gone with a group of friends to a home in the House community on Hwy. 19 North, decided to walk home to Meridian on that Friday night. But apparently when he came to Hwy. 19 North he turned north instead of south. Hours later he found himself at O'Neals Store at the four-way stop. That is when he made the call to his girlfriend in Meridian to come and pick him up.

    "He was trying to tell her exactly where he was when he had to hang up for some reason," said Sims.

    Manley is described as standing 5-10, weighing 170 lbs. He was last seen wearing a brown Carhart work jacket and jeans with a camoflauge hat with a white "A" on the front. If anyone knows the whereabouts of Manley they are asked to contact the nearest law enforcement agency.

    Massive Search Ongoing for Missing Man

    An organized search is underway in Neshoba County for a man who is wanted on a criminal charge, but his mother says he may have met with foul play.

    His family is worried that something might have happened to him. But Manley is also wanted for burglary in Neshoba County, so authorities believe it could just be a case of him not wanting to be found.

    Manley's mother said she believes, while he may have set out to elude authorities in the beginning, something went wrong in the process.

    Mom elicits help of MBI to search for son

    There is no one Dale Sims won't try to recruit in her search for her missing son.

    Sims' 24-year old son, Gerry Manley of Meridian, has been missing since the night of Feb. 12. Manley was last seen inside the Philadelphia Wal-Mart. An hour earlier Manley was attempting to tell his girlfriend where he was so she could come pick him up but for some unknown reason, Manley abruptly hung up the phone.

    (Source: The Meridian Star)By Brian Livingston, The Meridian Star, Miss.

    Brad Dennis was one of 4,000 people who volunteered to search for 12-year old Polly Klaas whose kidnapping and murder in October 1993 gained national exposure.

    Since then Dennis has devoted his time to the non-profit KlaasKids Foundation begun by Polly Klaas' father, Marc Klaas. Now the organization is in Collinsville to try and search for Gerry Manley, a Meridian man missing since the night of Feb. 12.

    MERIDIAN In her heart Dale Sims hopes her son is alive. But her common sense tells her otherwise.

    "I think the volunteers are searching for Gerry's body," said Sims quietly as a search team received their briefing on the area they would look for any signs of the 24-year old Meridian man. "I keep holding out hope, though, we'll find him alive."

    Authorities hope that DNA analysis being performed at the state Crime Lab will lead to the identification of the skeletal remains found more than a week ago in a secluded pond behind a motel off Holland Avenue.

    MERIDIAN In the small western Alabama town of Pennington, Dale Sims is leaning on the friends and family where she grew up.

    Sims is waiting, rather impatiently, for word as to whether the remains of a person found in Philadelphia on Oct. 18 are those of her son or someone else. As a mother she is having to fight the tug in her heart. She wants badly for her son, Gerry Manley, to be found but not dead.
