    Floyd “Andy” Parrish Jr., is missing after a visit to Athens, Georgia.

    I'm a little confused about this case, so I'll try to piece this story together:

    The Athens-Clarke County Police Department in Georgia and the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office both say the case is not in their jurisdiction. Athens police said they were told by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office that they found the truck and would tow it. Jacksonville police said they were not investigating the missing-person case.

    Athens police said they wrote the missing-person report as a courtesy and learned that he was last seen not in Georgia, but at home in Interlachen. Putnam authorities said they are aware of the person who saw Parrish but have not been asked to question them. Athens Sgt. Brad Collinsworth said they want Putnam investigators to interview that person.

    Andy Parrish worked at Publix for 22 years before leaving there in 2011 to pursue becoming a security guard. He has been working in Gainesville and commuting from a house he bought in Putnam during the past year.

    He went to Athens Dec. 26 to visit family, including his brother, the pastor of Green Acres Baptist Church there. He apparently asked another person to watch his property while he was gone. Andy Parrish left Georgia Friday morning, then called his brother just before 6 p.m. to say he was in Gainesville and heading home.

    Later that evening, Charles Parrish (Andy's brother) was called by a co-worker of his brother’s who said Andy Parrish was in trouble with some people and had taken $15,000 and some guns to meet someone. The caller later said the amount may have been $28,000, according to the Athens police report. He also was told there was a woman involved. “That doesn’t wash with anyone I’ve talked to,” Charles Parrish said. “He never said anything to anyone about a girl in Jacksonville.”

    Charles Parrish said he later learned Duval County had recovered his brother’s Ford. An eyewitness told police they saw someone park the Explorer then get out and get in a truck and leave. “The next morning the witness wakes up and the car is still there.”

    Andy Parrish had an extensive gun collection, his brother said, including a safe full of about 100 weapons, including AK-47, M-14s and 9mm handguns. “I only know of three or four times in 20 years that he sold a gun,” Charles Parrish said. He said no one yet has checked the gun safe in his brother’s home to see if the weapons are missing.

    “It might be empty as far as I know,” he said.

    His older brother, Charles Parrish, said Wednesday that Putnam detectives were at his brother’s house in Interlachen from about 5 p.m. Tuesday until 3 a.m. Wednesday and were back out there later Wednesday.

    He said investigators had contacted the seller of a safe that his brother bought several years ago to get the combination to open it to determine if the gun collection was still inside.

    Andy Parrish was last seen wearing a black motorcycle jacket, blue jeans and black boots.

    Putnam detectives interviewed one of two people who were close to his brother but have not located the second. The Athens police report said one of the individuals may have been an intermediary in the sale of Andy Parrish’s weapons. Athens investigators were told that person spoke with Andy Parrish in Putnam County, possibly Friday. Parrish’s Ford Explorer was found in Jacksonville and apparently abandoned.

    1 year ago today, Andy was murdered.

    I don't see anything about a trial yet, but did find this from April 15, 2015:

    Grand jury indicts man in Putnam County murder
    http://www.news4jax.com/news/local/grand-jury-indicts-man-in-putnam-county-murder

    Gertler remains in the Alachua County Jail on previously filed charges of auto theft, grand theft and burglary. He will be formally charged with first-degree murder and will be brought to Putnam County for trial.

    "He was such a kind person who never even said a mean word about somebody. So of course, not that a murder is ever justified, but to think somebody would be so horrible and do this to him was just beyond belief and we wouldn't have been able to make it through this time without our faith in Jesus," said BS, Parrish's cousin.
