ABBEVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The family of a missing Anderson County fisherman said more than 30 weeks have passed since he disappeared.

Mitchell Gibson disappeared in March. He was last seen on Lake Russell.

Investigators said Gibson’s truck and trailer were found parked at the Beer Garden landing.

Search crews also found Gibson’s cell phone, life vests and bait bucket floating in the water about a mile from the landing, but have found no other sign of Gibson or his boat, a 24-foot aluminum boat with a 600-gallon tank.

Gibson’s family is still searching for answers and any clues about what happened to him.

The family posted this message on FOX Carolina’s Facebook page on Monday, one day after the 30-week anniversary of Gibson’s disappearance.

“Yesterday was 30 weeks since we were notified that Mitchell was missing. We are still asking for your help, asking for your prayers and begging you to please let us know if you or anyone you know can give us information to help us bring Mitchell home. We are tired, physically and emotionally tired. We just want to bury him, we just need to be able to tell him goodbye. Someone knows something, someone can help us, we just need them to speak up! We need them to imagine what they would want for people to do for them if they were in our shoes. Thank you to each and everyone of you for continuing to share our posts, pray for us and think of us each and every day! While we are still trying, still working hard every day to get closure, the not knowing is getting harder and harder to deal with each and every day, it just gets harder.”
