A Houston County family is now facing a second week of wondering and worrying about a missing loved one.

There have been no clues in the case of Leamon Luffman, 66, who vanished Oct. 7 after leaving a rose for his wife a day before what would have been his 25th wedding anniversary.

Investigators say this is truly one of the most mysterious missing persons cases they've ever seen.

Searches have turned up nothing, and police don't have a single clue to go on.

Now, family members are issuing a desperate plea for the public's help.

"If he even sees this, we just want him to come home," said stepdaughter Donna Bryant.

Luffman is the kind of man you could set your watch by. His routine is the same each day, almost down to the minute.

"He always set a coffee cup out in front of the coffee pot with a spoon in it so she could fix her coffee, and that was the same," Bryant said.

But last Monday, Luffman's wife woke up to find no trace of her husband, with his car still parked outside.

For more than a week, members of the Houston County community have helped police comb the woods, only to wind up with nothing.

"I think if he was hurt in the woods or something, I think they would have found him. I really don't know what to think happened. I really don't," Bryant said. "Everybody you talk to about Leamon, he is the kindest man you'll ever meet - always help anybody if they needed help. Nothing like him. This is nothing like him."

If he's within earshot, the family is begging him to come home. If he's the victim of a crime, they're looking for clues.

"We just want him to come home. Come home," Bryant said.

Police say they do not believe Luffman has any medical conditions.

Foul play is not suspected at this time.

If you have seen Luffman, call sheriff's officials at 931-721-4019.
