The family of a Farmington Hills man who has been missing for four months is offering a reward for information that leads to his safe return.
Brent Briggs, 44, is cognitively impaired. On June 6, family members say, he had a “very frustrating moment” and drove away from his home. What they know is this:
Briggs got onto I-75 and drove until he was nearly out of gas. At 8:30 a.m. on June 7, he walked away from his car in London, Kentucky, leaving his cell phone behind.
Tennessee State Police picked him up on June 11 in LaFollette, Tennessee, and took him to a local hospital. Briggs was released and walked away from Tennova Health Care at 4:08 p.m. that day.
Authorities have issued a nation-wide “Gold Alert,” established for missing people who have disabilities. The family also created a Facebook page to raise awareness: facebook.com/brentbriggsismissing/.
