Foul play now suspected in Fannin's disappearance

scottie 5000

The search for a missing Martin County man continues into a fourth month, with still no sign of what happened to him being missing since mid-December, as his family has substantially increased a reward for information on his whereabouts.

According to the Martin County Sheriff's Office, family members of William "Scottie" Fannin, 37 of Milo in Martin County say they last saw him on December 10, 2015, when he was seen around his home along Dick Fannin Lane.

The search has been non-stop by family members and authorities. Search crews and search dogs have also been used in the search. Milo Lake was even drained because the dogs picked up a scent, but that search ended the same as all the others, with no sign of Fannin.

Law enforcement authorities now believe that foul play could be involved in his disappearance.

Scottie Fannin’s family has increased their reward money to $5,000 for any information that leads to his whereabouts.

If anyone has any information to provide to officials, you are asked to contact the Martin County Sheriff's Office at (606) 298 – 2828.
