An East Texas family says the reward has been raised in the search for their missing son.

Ronnie Joe Gammage, 27, of Longview, has not been seen since Tuesday, December 4th. Longview police say his truck was found abandoned outside the Waffle House on Loop 281, with one of the tires slashed.

His mother, Frankie Gammage, told us that "Ron" would never go for more than a day without contacting her. She says her son has a mental disability, and muscular dystrophy, and wouldn't have been able to fight back if he was attacked.

"I was told that he went back in to the Waffle House, and told them that he had a flat," Gammage said. "He went back out to the truck, and they said that was the last time they saw him, around 3am. He would have called me, and said, 'Mom I've got a flat.' He'd have called me if he ran out of gas, if he needed money, anything, he would call me."

Gammage says it's extremely out of character for Ronnie to be somewhere without his truck or his cell phone, but his phone hasn't been answered since the day he went missing.

Ronnie Gammage is 6'8", 265 pounds, and police say he usually dresses in western attire. If you have any information, call the Longview Police.
