Family desperate to find missing Pell City man | News
PELL CITY, AL (WBRC)- Forest Amell's mother and his stepfather are beside themselves with worry since he vanished.
Pam Wood says it's uncharacteristic for Amell to just leave his family and the life he had in Pell City.
Pictures and a description of Amell are posted throughout Pell City. He's 5 feet, 8 inches,190 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a white shirt, black pants and black shoes.
Both his mother and police say he's a quiet young man with no record of any trouble with the law. Amell worked as a cook at the Pell City Waffle House and got off work at 6 a.m. April 21, 2012. He then headed to his apartment complex where he lived with his aunt and some cousins.
Detective Bonnie Lomelli has put in many hours searching for him with no luck.
"We got his cell phone records, we went to cell towers, searched the wooded areas, talked to friends, neighbors, whoever. Right now were' at a standstill," Lomelli said.
Amell's mother says he would have gotten paid the day after he vanished and that he has no car and no motive to suddenly move away.
"We are so worried and so scared, and we know somebody knows something. We are just asking and begging people… to call the Pell City Police Department," Wood said.
"Right now any type of lead I can get I will go with it. If you don't want to leave your name and number just leave me a message on my cell phone," Lomelli said.
Detective Lomelli can be reached at 205-884-3334. Amell's family and friends are trying to put together a reward in hopes of getting some leads.
