Missing Buford man's family increases reward to $50K

BUFORD — The family of a missing Buford man last seen three weeks ago is hoping a bump in the reward money will bring the needed information to find him.

Kelly Nash, 25, was last seen on Jan. 5. So far, his father Alan Nash said there are no substantial leads, announcing a $50,000 reward for information on his son’s whereabouts.

“We got to thinking that maybe there’s somebody out there that’s got some information that’s just kind of sitting on the fence about what to do with it,” Alan Nash said. “We’re hoping the additional amount will push them over the top.”

The Nash family has spared no expense in trying to find their son, with teams of volunteers canvassing neighborhoods near the Jimmy Dodd Road residence where Kelly Nash was last seen.

Kelly Nash’s face and information are on billboards in Forsyth, Hall and Gwinnett counties.

“It’s probably what has kept our sanity right now is just the pure focus on trying to reach and be as visible as possible,” Alan Nash said. “It’s been such a group team effort with our family and friends and Facebook friends.”

Kelly Nash’s disappearance has started to receive national attention, as “Disappeared” spent a week documenting the Nash family. The production is expected to air in March.

“It’s one of these disappearances that is rarely seen like the way this has happened,” Alan Nash said.

Kelly Nash was last seen on Jan. 5 around 4 a.m. playing video games at his home. A few hours later, he was gone, having left behind his cell phone, wallet and truck.

The 25-year-old Buford man is 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 230 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.
