Increased Reward in Missing Man Case in Burke County
A reward offered in a Burke County missing person case has risen to $10,000. Sixty three year old Simon Powell was last seen driving his white Ford pickup the evening of June 1. A burned out vehicle believed to be Powell’s was found the next day on Wilson Road in Burke County. Powell’s family and the Burke County Sheriff’s Office later offered a $7,500 reward.
A new investigator has been assigned to work alongside the GBI in hopes of getting a fresh perspective in the case. Anyone with information on Powell’s disappearance should call the Burke County Sheriff’s Office.
