The missing person case of a Perkinston man has taken a dark turn.
According to Captain Ray Boggs with the Stone County Sheriff’s Department, they now believe Robert ‘Bruce’ Hariel to be in grave danger or possibly dead.
Thirty-seven year-old Hariel was last seen on January 11th. After over a month of investigating, they now believe he had no reason to flee or abandon his family. According to Captain Boggs, he was very attached to his family.
Stone County Sheriff’s Department and Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers are asking the public to come forward with any information.
Boggs says the department just needs that last pieces of the puzzle. “We are searching. We are checking every lead. We are touching every stone that we get to turn it over and we go to bed tired and go home late. Somebody has the information that we need and hopefully you know this reward might touch their hearts and they might call us. We just need the last two pieces of the puzzle.”
Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for any information that leads to Hariel. You will remain completely anonymous.
