Community still searching for Joseph Talbert 100 days later
Today his friends and community members gathered in the spot where he was last seen to remind people that joe is not forgotten.
Joe was originally from McCormick county, but he was placed in an assisted living facility in Lincoln county due to his dementia.
Joe went missing in July sparking a five-day search spanning both Lincoln and Richmond counties.
“He was a good, well loved man. He loved the people of McCormick and the people of McCormick loved him,” Joy Turman, friend of Talbert, said. “My hope is that whoever has him or anybody that knows anything will be honest and come forward--just so we can have closure and know that joe is okay. But in my heart of hearts, I feel like joe is still alive and joe is still well.”
If you have any information or you think you’ve seen Talbert anywhere, please contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 359-4118.
