More than a month has passed since Brian Chris Sexton, 23, went missing.
On Saturday, family and friends held their fifth organized search, and still no clues were found.
Cindy Yates continues to search for her stepson, Brian Chris Sexton, who was last seen Oct. 14.
“It was a good day, but disappointing,” she said. “We don't know where to go next. We just want him to come home.”
Putnam County deputies said he was involved in a fight at a party in the woods near Joyce Street in Scott Depot that night, and no one has seen him since. Saturday's search began at in the Coal River area.
The search party hit the Winfield Locks and Dam area, but, once again, there was no sign of Sexton.
On top of the stress of not knowing where Sexton can be, now a family member said she is being threatened.
“My stepdaughter got a note handed to her in school, saying that Will is next,” Yates said. “We don't know if it's a joke. But it's not the time to be funny.”
The FBI is now involved with the case, giving family and friends hope they'll soon have answers.
“He didn't deserve this,” Yates said. “Don't know who did it, but wish somebody would come forward, whether they tell us who they are or not, tell us where he's at.”
The search continues again Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Joyce Road area near a lake. Anybody with information that can help locate Brian Sexton is asked to call the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.
