ORIGINAL STORY 7/28/15

WAYNE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- West Virginia State Police continue to search for a missing man from Dunlow, and his family members refuse to give up hope.

For the past five months, Belle Ferguson has been holding onto the many good memories she has of her son Kenneth Hamm. There's been no sign of him since his disappearance in March, and she worries they'll be the last memories she'll make with him.

"The not knowing is the hardest. I just want to find him," Ferguson said.

Family members told police they last saw Hamm at his cousin's home off of Ferguson Ridge Road on March 3.

"That was the last time she'd seen him. She said she went to bed around midnight and got up around five or six and he was gone," Ferguson said.

Police say they have interviewed dozens of people, but none led them to Hamm.

"We'd just like to ask the people in the community again if they think they might know something, if they've overheard something that might lead us to finding him," West Virginia State Police Cpl. L. Pennington said.

For Ferguson, each day without her son is another day of heartache. She says she'll never stop searching, but hopes that someone somewhere will lead them to her loved one.

"I think someone knows something and they just won't say it," Ferguson said.

She said Hamm had recently been released from jail and was working at a grocery store in Lavalette.

Anyone with information about where Hamm could be is asked to call the Wayne County Detachment of West Virginia State Police.
