It has been 11 days and there is still no sign of a missing Putnam County man.
His mysterious disappearance continues to raise questions amongst his family and loved ones.
Missing posters are plastered around the area Brian Christopher Sexton, 23, was last seen.
But as time goes on, his family has found themselves with many more questions than answers.
Putnam County Sheriff's deputies say they know Sexton got into some sort of altercation at a party in the woods near Joyce Street in Scott Depot.
It was at a very secluded, but well-known party spot that Sexton was last seen. A group had gathered there and had been partying throughout the night and into the early morning.
Dogs were able to track his scent to a gate near the Save-a-Lot along U.S. Route 33 in Scott Depot. His shirt was also found in the area, but, from there, no one knows what happened, or if they do, they are not coming clean.
Desperate for answers, his mother is holding on to hope, but pleading for information from anyone that can help.
Anyone with information about Sexton is asked to call the Putnam County Sheriff's office at 304-586-0214.
Putnam County deputies continue to search for a man who has been missing for 10 days.
Brian Sexton, 23, of Putnam County was last seen on Oct. 14 about 10 p.m. along Joyce Road in Scott Depot.
On Friday, cadaver dogs were brought in to search the area where Sexton was last seen. Putnam County deputies told Eyewitness News the search turned up no sign of Sexton.
If you know anything about Sexton's disappearance, you're asked to call the Putnam County Sheriff's Office at (304) 586-9846.
