It's been 10 years since a man vanished from his home in Casey County, and his family still says they do not know what happened.

The family said they are certain Charles Randolph did not survive what happened outside his home on Kentucky 501 near Kings Mountain.

His neighbors said they saw him get into a white SUV. His family does not believe he went with those people willingly.

"They found a necklace of his in the front yard, thought they jerked it off," said Randolph's sister, Freda Elmore. "That's what we feel like. We loved him so much. Mom loved him so much. That was her baby."

Several years ago his family put up a headstone. They are in the process of declaring Randolph legally dead without a body.

The family raised more than $4,000 for a reward but the family said that will be donated to a search-and-rescue crew if Randolph is not found by the end of the year.
