Gary Wayne Sayre is 5 feet, 7 inches tall and approximately 150 pounds. He has black/silver hair that he usually wears in a ponytail, a goatee, and several tattoos. He was wearing a black leather jacket with a hoodie under it, jeans, hiking boots and gloves.
Charron Sayre, Gary’s wife, stated that he left their home on Round Ridge Road around 8:30 Sunday night with another individual. Charron was contacted by the driver of the car later on Sunday, who told her that her husband had been in an altercation with another individual in the car. Charron reports that Gary Sayre’s friend, the driver of the car, stated that he would take the other individual that Gary argued or fought with home and would be back to pick Gary up. The driver reportedly told Charron that when he returned to the spot where Gary exited the vehicle, at the 2 mile marker on Highway 190 (almost in Clairfield), Gary was gone.
Charron stated that she went on Sunday night and searched along the highway where Gary allegedly went missing and found his hat in the middle of the road.
Charron called a friend who lives in the area to see if Gary was there and was told that he had not been there.
According to his wife, Sayre has a rare autoimmune disease called Reynolds Syndrome that could affect him in cold weather.
Charron stated that this is not common behavior for Gary. He and his wife have been married for almost 19 years. They have a 15-year-old autistic son named Gabriel.
Charron said that when her husband left home, he did not have a cell phone, had no money and had only four cigarettes.
“His intentions were not to not come back. He’s just gone. We have no answers, just a whole lot of questions,” Charron Sayre said.
“He’s a good man,” Charron said. She added that although there is a lot of stress in the home, it revolves around raising their severely autistic son, and said that they’re a happy couple.
“We weren’t having marital problems, it’s nothing like that.”
“He wouldn’t just disappear,” said Charron. “He wouldn’t want to worry his mother (Judy Sayre) like that, and he wouldn’t want to worry me either.”
When asked if she would like to address her husband or send him a message, Charron stated, “It’s okay to call. Call somebody. We’re not mad, we just need to know he’s okay.”
The Bell County Rescue Squad searched for Gary, but turned the case over to the Bell County Sheriff’s department.
