Family, friends beg community for answers three months after Robbie Hurt last seen

Local News

Family and friends of Robbie Hurt are still holding out hope that they’ll see him again, three months after he went missing.

They think someone in the Danville community might know something.

“I just- I just want to know what to tell my kids. We just- we just want to know,” said Robbie’s wife, Emily.

She describes her husband as a Packers fan, a lover of carpentry, and a great dad to his three kids.

She says he’d sometimes slip away for a day or two but would never abandon his family.

“My eight-year-old saved up her money to buy him a Christmas present, and she couldn’t give it to him. It’s hard,” she said.

Emily joined around a dozen friends and family members Saturday at this shopping center in Danville to ask the community for answers.

She says it’s close to the ditch where his truck was found on December 12th.

“No matter what has happened, or where he is, or what the situation is, we want to know. No matter what it is,” she said.

Robbie’s sister, Kelly, says many parts of the case still don’t make sense to her: she says there were no keys in the truck, but that his boots were there despite the snowstorm.

“If something bad has happened, we need to start the process of getting through this. Because right now, everything is in limbo,” said Kelly Blevins, Robbie’s sister.

Her mom, Rebecca Griffith, says she is sure there’s still information out there.

“I’m 60 years old and, you know, my health is going to suffer if I don’t know something. I need to know,” she said.
