Family announces reward for information about missing man


Authorities continue to search for a man who has been missing for more than a month and now, his family is making a desperate plea for information on his whereabouts.

Jon Wallace, 34, of Plaquemine, disappeared on July 18. He was last seen near the Walmart in Brusly that Friday morning.

The West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office is leading this investigation with help from the Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office.

One week after Wallace's disappearance, crews searched along the Mississippi River levee in West Baton Rouge Parish, but were unsuccessful in any leads. This has been his mother's worst nightmare.

"I'm hurt not knowing where he's at, whether he's dead or alive," said Suzette Wallace, the missing man's mother. "I just want him home or safe and I want to hear something soon. Anything that you have that will help in finding him or helping with his whereabouts, just contact us, please, so we can know something."

The family has pledged a $1,000 reward to anyone who comes forward with information that leads to locating Wallace. He is described as 6'2" with light blue eyes, and he weighs about 190 lbs. He has blonde hair and several tattoos, including one on his upper arm that reads, "Bammaw." He also has a lower back tattoo that reads, "Wallace" and other tattoos on his arms and legs.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact your local law enforcement or the West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office at 343-9234.
