The family of a Marion County man gone missing for nearly 6 weeks is offering a $15,000 reward for information on his fate. Wesley Ridge, age 39, was last seen near his home near Hales Bar Marina off Highway 41. Sheriff Ronnie “Bo” Burnett says records show Ridge used his phone the day he disappeared, but it hasn’t been activated since. Burnett say it seems that the man has simply vanished. The Sheriff hopes the reward money will bring information about the man’s disappearance. Ridge is white, weighting 230 pound at 5 feet 10 inches tall. Persons with information are being asked to call the Marion County Sheriff’s Office at 423-942-2525.
