A Huntington family is desperate for help to bring a missing man home.
Randy Martin, 31, was last seen Tuesday night.
His car was found abandoned at a local restaurant yesterday.
Martin's family is having a hard time coping with his disappearance.
They've had loved ones travel in from out of state to try and help, and are desperate for any information that brings him home.
It's hard to describe what the Martin family is going through, but the uncertainly is most definitely painful.
"It's just shattering,” his mother, Brenda Martin, said. “You can’t imagine!"
His uncle, Melvin Lilly, echoed that sentiment.
"We can’t work,” he said. “We can’t eat. We can’t sleep."
Martin’s mother and uncle, along with other family members, are worried sick.
Martin went missing from his home in Westmoreland on Tuesday.
Family and friends said he has no enemies, and is dedicated to his work and family.
For him to just go up and missing is not like him at all.
Huntington police found his Martin’s green Toyota Corrola on Friday night in the parking lot of Shoney's in the city’s west end.
But police still don't know where Martin could be.
While numb, the family hangs signs and waits for good news, while pleading for anyone with clues on his disappearance to come forward.
Martin is about 6 feet, two inches tall and weighs 190 pounds.
Anyone who has seen him, or has any information about where he might be, is asked to call police.
