Volunteers, police continue search for missing Liberty runner

LIBERTY, MO (KCTV) -

Hundreds of volunteers searched Wednesday afternoon for a Liberty man who failed to return home from an evening run, but turned up no new clues.

Chad Rogers, 30, left his parents' home where he has been living along with his wife and 1-year-old son for a run. He has been missing since about 8:30 p.m. Monday.

His parents live on Amesbury Avenue. Liberty Christian Fellowship, the family's church, is serving as the command center for the dozens of volunteers helping out.

Police dogs have also been used, and at least one hit on Rogers' scent. Liberty police are overseeing all the efforts.

But police say the leads are drying up. Six dogs searched Wednesday evening.

Family members led by Chad Rogers' father, Greg Rogers, are keeping a vigil and helping in the search efforts.

"It's amazing," Rogers said about hundreds turning out in support. "It's humbling."

He said it's tough, but the family is holding onto its faith and praying for a positive outcome.

The veteran marathon runner, his wife and their son had been staying with his parents for seven months, waiting for their Jefferson City home to sell.

"He didn't take his keys, didn't take his wallet, didn't take anything like that," Sgt. Robert Kumpost said.

The veteran marathon runner frequently ran between 3 to 15 miles along several different routes.

On prior runs, he wore a watch, that could track his run. However, on Monday night's run, he was not tracked, so police looked at past runs for clues. That was until a media blitz brought calls from people who saw him running a route opposite the usual ones.

Chad Rogers was last seen wearing a bright orange visor with Newton Running printed on it, black running shorts, red running shoes and was not wearing a shirt.

He is described to be 5'11, 175 pounds with a shaved head and several tattoos.

If you've seen him, please notify the Liberty Police Department at 816-439-4701.
