(WMC-TV) - The wife of a missing Fayette County man says she's spent the last few months worrying, wondering, and waiting to find out what happened to her husband.

"Not good, but I'm surviving," May Nicholson said.

Nicholson hasn't had a good night's sleep in four months. Her husband, 82-year-old George Nicholson, was last seen alive June 29th.

May fears the worst.

"Tell us where to look to find something to bring home but we have nothing and its hard," she adds.

George Nicholson was on his way from his Arlington home to the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica. He was last seen in the area of Millbranch and I-240, asking for directions to the casino.

Additional reports indicate Nicholson stopped again along Third Street wanting directions.

In July, his red GMC Sierra was found by a hunter at the Tunica cutoff.

"I don't know where they left George but he wasn't with them in the truck," May Nicholson said. "Somebody put the truck there to make it look like he drove it there."

Nicholson's truck is once again parked in his garage. But May says that's just not good enough. She wants to know where her husband of sixty-two years is and what happened to him.

"I need to know, to find something to bring home for closure, but after this long, it's hard to believe he's still out there," she said.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of George Nicholson, call the Fayette County Sheriff's Department at 901-465-3456.

The Nicholson family is offering a $5,000 reward for information in the case.
