Some light may soon be shed on the whereabouts of a missing Longview man.
Ronnie Joe Gammage, 27, of Longview, has been missing since December 4.
Longview Police say his pickup was found abandoned outside the Waffle
House restaurant on Loop 281, with one of the tires slashed.
Surveillance video from Gilmer National Bank on December 4 reportedly
shows four people in a car trying to cash a check on Gammage's account,
just 20 minutes after he left the bank. The teller at the bank turned the people
away because they did not have proper identification. The check was
written for $400 to someone inside the car.
Longview police say they have made contact with the people seen in this surveillance video from Gilmer National Bank. Police are not calling the people suspects, but hope they can shed light on what may have happened to Gammage.
Gammage's mother, Frankie Gammage, said "Ron" has an intellectual disability
and would never go for more than a day without contacting her. She says
he also has muscular dystrophy and wouldn't have been able to fight back
if he was attacked.
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 at (903) 237-1199.
A $5,000 reward is being offered for information in Gammage's disappearance, according to family.
