Charles Kent has been missing now more than 40 hours.
"It's real hard when you don't have a clue where someone you love is. Whether he's okay, whether he is hurt, whether someone has hurt him. Whether he is lost, and can't find his way back,"said Kent's daughter, Kathy Prince.
"Charles Kent is on extremely strong prescription medication that his family says completely alters his mind, but seemed o-k when he left for the store.
"It has just distorted his thinking, and that is one reason we are so scared. We don't know if he can even find his way home,"said Prince.
"Marriage is til' death us do part, for better or worse. I would go anywhere and do anything for him. I love him,"said Kent.
Holiday plans are being put on hold this year, as Charles Kent's family prays for his return.
"He's not dead. I know he's not dead. God has given me assurance, he's not dead, he's not dead.....I know that,"said Kent.
