BESSEMER, AL (WBRC) -

Bessemer police are looking for a 42-year-old man who has not been seen in more than three weeks.

Jerry Wayne Dailey II was reported missing on Sunday, Nov. 13. His father said Dailey was last seen on Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Dailey is known as "Jay" and "Red." He's described as a white male, 6', around 180 pounds with red hair and blue eyes. His father said he was last wearing a dark shirt, blue jeans, a black toboggan and a plaid, "lumber jack" type jacket.

Police say Dailey has several health issues and does not have his medication with him. His sister, Tina, says that he suffers from seizures, mental instabilities and even had a heart attack a few months ago.

But those are only a few of their concerns. Tina says she and her family fear Dailey may have been robbed and killed.

Tina says it's highly unusual not to hear from Dailey for so long, even when he was at his lowest point self-medicating with drugs and alcohol. She said he would always call the family.

Dailey had been in a program for substance abuse and Tina says he was doing well.

"We were on the road to more and more recovery," she said. "He's been getting odd jobs, having his own spending money, he was being supported by the family. He really had no reason to disappear."

In fact, Tina says the last day anyone heard from Dailey, he was on his way to buy a car.

"He was supposed to meet my cousin. Turns out my cousin couldn't get off work in time to meet him. He already withdrew money to buy the vehicle so we know he had cash on him, a cell phone on him, he had used it that day. He went away with someone we don't know and we have not heard back from him since that day," Tina said.

Tina fears that someone knew Dailey had the money on him and took it from him by force. That's why she spoke out on FOX6 News Friday, hoping that someone may have seen her brother.

"Just be on the lookout for him. If you know anything let us know. We just really want to know what happened," she said.

Anyone with information about his location is asked to call Bessemer Police at 205-425-2411.
