Gary T. Tacey, 53, who was reported missing by his girlfriend on June 23, 2017, is still missing.

Tacey was last seen on June 19 at his home at 60 Paul Brady Road near Loretto.

In July of last year, local law enforcement, along with search and rescue personnel and two teams of canine cadaver dogs, completed a two-day search of a 140-acre farm property in Loretto, but there were no results from that search.

Since then, law enforcement officials have followed up on several leads, according to Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Clements. Officials have also worked with a private investigator and the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office, but Tacey’s whereabouts are still unknown.

Tacey is described as a white male, 5-feet, 10-inches tall, 190 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. Tacey also goes by the name of Buddy Love. Anyone with information as to his whereabouts is asked to contact the Marion County Sheriff’s Office at 270-692-3051.
