Monday marks six years since one Knox County man went missing, never to be seen or heard from again.

Cecil Baker was last seen on May 1, 2011, driving a 1994 green GEO.

His disappearance remains a mystery.

"He was a good person, he was likable," said Darlene Rice, Baker's sister. "Anybody that met him, liked him."

Six year's later, Baker's absence still isn't easy for family members.

"Every morning and of the evening, I sit out here with the sun going down and I think about him so bad," said Rice. "My husband passed away two years ago but I know where my husband's at. He's right down the road in the cemetery. But my little brother...I don't know where's he at."

In a family with 13 children, Rice said she was the oldest while Baker was the youngest. She also said she helped raise Baker. Now she just wants to know what happened, before her time on Earth is over.

"I want my brother found before....I've got a whole lot of health issues," said Rice. "And I want my little brother found."

No news has been bad news for the family, as they continue to wait for closure.

"I can just hear of remains and I get tore up thinking maybe...just maybe," said Rice. "But never no luck."

Rice said investigators tell her Baker's case has not gone cold.

"I don't want nobody to give up," said Rice. "Nobody that loved him or law enforcement should be giving up."

Rice said she has faith one day she will know what happened.

According to Kentucky State Police, there are no new leads in the case however they are still investigating what happened to Cecil Baker.
