On march 10th 48 year old roger taylor was reported missing.
In the nearly nine months since then his family has not received any new information on his whereabouts.
Over the last couple of months, it seems like there's been a string of missing people.
And during the holiday season, it can place an extra burden on family and friends.
Our stephanie poole has more on this story.
" it was heartbreaking.
It's to the point now where he's been gone so long if he was found it'd be a miracle, but the probability of it is really really low."
261 days... that's how long alyssa taylor's father has been missing.
"there's no closure, i don't think you could ever get closure no knowing what happened to your child ,your brother, your cousin, your uncle, your daddy."
Taylor says the last couple of months have been filled with sorrow and anger.
And with the holiday season rolling around, her family is leaning on each other... " we talk a-lot more than we used to.
I mean it's sad tragic events will bring family together but they really do.
We all talk about more than we used to and talk about him and what he was like and what he used to do and it always leads back to where he could be.
We want to give him what he deserves, what every family wants nobody wants nobody to die but you want to be able to visit with them and honor them and our family doesn't have that."
Often times the pain is too hard to bear... "i try not to think about it.
Yu have time to grieve and cope with it a little bit but then again you don't.
So some days you wake up and it's just like it's happened again."
Veronica harrison from community counseling services says families in these types of situations have several coping options.
" part of what they can do is keep remembering the individual even though they don't have a person to grieve is still a loss.
So what they need to do with that loss is remember the individual even if they have to set a place a table until they know the determining factors of what has happened to their loved ones.
" harrison suggests that surrounding yourself with family and friends can help.
" don't ignore their thoughts, don't down play them, don't think 'oh you should get over it', no matter how long because there's no time period for grief.
Remembering them, it's painful but it's great to know we haven't forgotten you and we're still looking.
" " i prayed and prayed so hard for aniah's family and that little girl taylor from florida, and cupcake from birmingham it's just horrible to think that the world we live in people and just see these missing people.
" reporting in lamar county, stephanie poole, wcbi news.
Anyone with any information on taylor's whereabout are asked to contact the monroe county, mississippi sheriff's department.

Sunny, drier, and cooler weather stinger call it beginner's luck, but mississippi's gamble on a lottery is starting off with a ?win?..

First day sales rang up to the tune of 2-point-5 million dollars.
All but two mississippi counties have retailers selling scratch-offs now.
As courtney ann jackson explains--some have already seen the results of their risks.
If you thought--there's just no way...think again.
David bond is still in shock but glad he decided to play.
"i just picked up five tickets.
Put 'em in my sun visor and i went hunting.
Didn't do no good hunting but came back home, sat down at the table, got me a cup on coffee and started scratching them off."
He picked 5 of the triple 7 tickets--2 bucks a piece.
"i said, holy behold, something's wrong, this has got 100 all up and down this thing.
I said i better go back and tell this woman at the store eto check this thing.
First thing she told me, she said...take this ink pin and sin it now."
"2,000 dollars" so, he came to jackson to cash in tuesday.
"i've been to louisiana.
We go on vacation.
I pick up one every once in awhile in different states.
But like everybody else in mississippi, it's the first time i've bought them in mississippi yesterday because it was the first day."
He was the first big winner.
And the state lottery corporation feels like day one was a win.
"great day yesterday.
We exceeded 2.5 million dollars in sales.
Our best estimate what that means for the state yesterday is about 570,000 out of that 2.5."
The retailers are paid 6 percent of every sale.
"there wasn't any one part of the state that exceeded in sales and the four games pretty much sold at the same levels.
The five dollar game did better than the others but most of them--same level of sales."
And while it's a good start---the corporation knows that sales likely won't stay so high but will probably shoot back up when powerball and megamillions start up in january.
If your prize is under 600 dollars--you can claim it at one of the retailers.
Between 600- 99,999 has to be claimed at the lottery headquarters or by mail.
If you hit the jackpot of more than 100- thousand dollars--you'll have to go to the lottery headquarters in flowood.
