The family of missing Osceola man asking community for help

CARAWAY, AR (KAIT)- Osceola Police are still searching for 49-year-old Edward Freeman who went missing last month in Wilson.

Freeman's sister and niece told police he was last seen Tuesday, December 10th, when he went to his ex-wife's home.

Twenty five days later the family of Freeman is asking the community to help bring him home.

"We been searching everywhere: Wilson, Bassett, Sand Ridge, Dyess, everywhere," said Glenda Burnett, sister of Freeman.

But Burnett nor her sisters are ready to give up the search for their brother.

"He's never done this before, he's never disappeared and not contacted me," she said. 

The last time Burnett saw her brother was the weekend after Thanksgiving.

"He's always been a lovable person, hard worker, he worked all the time," Burnett said. "He had two wonderful sons."  

Burnett and her sisters filed a report with Osceola Police Department in December.

"They can't give us any answers," she said. "They're working on it, that's all we know."

Freeman was last seen wearing a camouflage jacket, blue jeans and camouflage boots.

"If there is anybody out there that has seen our brother please contact us," Burnett pleaded. "We got to know, we have to have closure."

She said she lies awake at night thinking of what could have happened to her brother.

"If anybody can help us please help us, ff anybody could give us anything, they would be hope for us," she said. 

She also has a message for her brother.

"Come home, that we will help him and he'll always have a home with me," she said. 

The family is offering a one thousand dollar reward for any information on Freeman's whereabouts.
