Family Want Help Finding Missing Man

Oct 29, 2007



CHARLESTON, Mo. - Three weeks after her son mysteriously disappeared, a local woman hasn't given up hope of finding him.

Tony Woodworth, 35, of Charleston went missing back on October 11th.

His family now has a $2,000 reward up for grabs to try and get information.

So far they've heard plenty of rumors around town, and some of them are pretty ugly, but no one including the police has any idea what happened.

Now Woodworth's family hopes you came help them bring Tony back home.

"Somebody's done something to my Tony.  Somebody's done something bad to him," Annie Black said.

She called her son a real momma's boy.  She said he's so close to her; he tattooed the word "mom" on his right arm.  He's never stayed away from home without calling her first.

"I have heart trouble.  Tony wouldn't do this to me.  If he's out here, he knows what was going on he'd come home," she said.

Woodworth's family hopes people going about their business see the posters they've put up.  They're tacked up in gas stations, grocery stores, even city hall, and one clerk says it's hard to miss them.

"They're everywhere.  Everywhere you go.  People say 'Oh there's that dude that's missing.'" the clerk said.

Charleston police printed off posters of their own, alerting departments across the country. Chief Robert Hearnes said foul play's a possibility, but they can't track Tony Woodworth because he didn't have a cell phone or credit cards.

Still Hearnes doesn't want people to think they've given up the search.

"He's had numerous run-ins with the law and we have information he has been a drug user.  I don't want that to influence people.  We want them to look for him because he's missing," Hearnes said.

Tony Woodworth's mother hopes all this attention and the reward money helps someone remember something.

"Somebody out here knows.  If they would just tell us where he's at, I could bring him home," she said wringing her hands.

Woodworth's other family members say at this point just knowing what happened to Tony would bring them some peace.

If you have any information you think might help, call the Charleston Department of Public Safety a call at (573) 683-3737.

Staff reports

CHARLESTON  Police and family members are searching for a Charleston man missing since Oct. 12.

Tony Woodworth, 35, was last seen about 4:30 p.m. Oct. 12 walking in Charleston, according to Charleston Department of Public Safety. Woodworth is 5-feet, 10-inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. He has brown hair, brown eyes and tattoos on both arms.

He just disappeared, said Woodworths sister, Teresa Woodworth. ... They say that hes out there partying, but my brother didnt go nowhere.

Woodworth said she last talked to her brother around midnight Oct. 12. Since his disappearance there have been several rumors about her brothers whereabouts, Woodworth said. One of those is that someone has shot and hidden him, she said.

Annie Black said she last saw her son in the early evening Oct. 11.

I dont know anything. All I know is I want my son home, Black said. Like her daughter, Black doesnt think her son left town, she said.

I think somethings happened to my son. My son has never took off like this without calling me, said a choked up Black.

Before he went missing, Tony Woodworth had had just been released from house arrest, his sister said. He wouldnt take off; he loves me and his mom too much, Teresa Woodworth said. Hes been in and out of prison all of his life so he wouldnt leave.

Woodworth said her brother spent time in prison for burglary.

Meanwhile, family members are putting up fliers throughout the area and are offering a $2,000 reward, Woodworth said.

We would like the person responsible to come forward and bring him back, Teresa Woodworth said.

Black said the police have been searching for her son, but they have no leads. She believes there are people in the community who know what happened to her son.

Theres rumors ... bad ones, said Black, who began to cry. ...They know where my Tonys at. Its so cruel they wont talk. I just want to bring him home.

At press time, no further information was available from Charleston DPS. Anyone with information concerning Woodworth is asked to call the Charleston DPS at (573) 683-3737.

Missing Man's Family Hopes for National Attention
By: CJ Cassidy

Updated: July 21, 2008 12:58 PM EDT

CHARLESTON, Mo. - The family of a missing Charleston man says they're hoping to get some national attention.

Tony Woodworth, 36, disappeared nine months ago.

Woodworth's family members say they've contacted John Walsh, the host of "America's Most Wanted."  They say producers of the show say they'll look into the possibilities.

That's great news for this family who says they just don't know what else to do.

"I think someone killed him," Tony's sister, Teresa said.

Nine months after Woodworth's mysterious disappearance she and her mom don't know what else to believe.

Annie Black's T-shirt showcases a photograph of her and her son.  Tony might be gone, but she says he's never far from her thoughts.

"Something's happened to my son and I know it," she said.

That's why she and her family now hope getting some national attention will bring them some answers.

"I want to know why hasn't these police found my son?  If you're somebody like my son, been in trouble with the law, in jail in prison, that's just another person off the street to them," she said.

When I stopped by the Charleston Police station, I was told Chief Robert Hearnes was on vacation.

When I spoke with him last October, Hearnes said he was sending out Woodworth's information to police departments across the country.

"We want them to look for him because he's missing," he said at the time.

Hearnes also said foul play is a possibility but he couldn't track Woodworth because he didn't have a credit card or cell phone.

Back at the Woodworth home, the family huddles together on the front porch, hoping they can someday move past the sadness that surrounds them now.

"We just need closure.  Bring him home and let our minds at rest.  We get no rest now," Teresa said.

She also says the family spent most of the $2000 they offered before as reward money on their search for her brother.

Anyone with information concerning Woodworth is asked to call the Charleston DPS at (573) 683-3737.

A letter to Tony from his family:

Dear Tony,

I wish I had the chance to tell you how much I love you how much I miss you.  How much I want you home with all of us.  No one knows how much my arms ache to hold you or to hear you say "Mom, I’m home".  Do you need me to do anything?  There is a big hole in my heart.  Sometimes the pain is so unbearable I just want to give up.  The not knowing is about to drive me crazy. 

I will never rest or be at peace until we find you.  We still have this little bit of hope that you are out there somewhere trying to find your way home to us. We pray to God that you are.  We all love you and miss you so much.  Please come home.

We love you with all our hearts,

Dad, Mom, Teresa, Tonya, Clyde, Jason, Timmy, Cody, Sierra, Britney, Caitlin, TA’kyiah, A’Kyiah, & Geoff

Family looking for man four years after disappearance


Posted: Jun 14, 2011 1:19 PM EDT Updated: Jun 14, 2011 1:19 PM EDT
By Holly Brantley


MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Nearly four years later, the family of Tony Woodworth won't stop looking.

"The good lord gives me strength everyday," said Woolworth's mother, Annie Black.

Woodworth vanished in October of 2007. His sister Teresa Woodworth was the last one to see him.

"He was at my house and I asked him to go to bed," said Teresa. "He said OK and that was the last time we spoke."

Over the years few leads have surfaced. Police say they sent out a call across the country for information.

At one time authorities believed foul play could be a possibility.

Woodworth's family tells Heartland News they believe he was killed. Now, they won't give up.

Through their own investigating they've learned Tony may have been in a white Oldsmobile the night he disappeared.

Others report hearing a gunshot wound in the Charleston neighborhood near Elm Street where he was last seen. Now the family wants answers.

"I can't prove it but I know a person in prison does know," said Black.

They say Tony's path wasn't always straight but he was a good person.

Now, the Woodworth family says they won't stop searching.

"I go on walks and do my own searching," said Teresa.

Family and friends remember man who disappeared 5 years ago

By Crystal Britt

CHARLESTON, MO (KFVS) -
A Charleston family is desperate for answers after their loved one disappeared without a trace.

No one has seen or heard from Tony Woodworth since he vanished on October 11, 2007.

"I don't want people to think we forgot about him because I'll never forget him," said Annie Black-Tony's Mother.

The emotions are just as raw today as they were five years ago. Annie Black's heart is breaking for her missing son.

"I can't tell him I love him anymore," said Black.

On this somber anniversary, family and friends gathered in Charleston to pray and release balloons.

"I'd give my life, if I could get answers to tell my mom," said Teresa Woodworth-Tony's Sister.

She says she can't get the early morning hours of October 11th, 2007 out of her mind.

She says her brother was at her house on the 200 block of North Elm in Charleston.

"He was arguing with some people outside, and he left," said Woodworth. "I haven't seen him since. That was five years ago today."

So far there are no known clues in this investigation.

Police at one point believed foul play could be a possibility.

"Tony didn't deserve this, if something happened to him he needs to be put to rest and put at peace," said Black.

His family believes someone has the information they need.

"There's people out here who know what happened, and they're afraid to help," said Black.

On this day of remembrance Woodworth's loved ones hope his story triggers even the slightest detail that leads them to closure.

"I just want answers, I just want to find my brother," said Teresa Woodworth.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol is now handling this investigation.

If you have any information on what happened to Tony Woodworth, give them a call.
