Reward Doubled In Missing Women Case

The reward for information on two missing Lubbock women is doubled.  Tuesday afternoon, the family of Kay Harrelson, spoke about her disappearance for the first time, and offered an additional $25,000 for tips leading to their loved one.  

Wednesday afternoon witnesses saw 51-year-old Kay Harrelson, and 61-year-old Peggy Merimon get into a car with an unidentified man at the Lubbock State School.  That's the last time anyone saw the pair.  

"Chris (Kay's son) and I are in uncharted waters, and we feel lost and helpless.  We continue to do everything the police asks us to do, and we do everything we know to do.  Our family is of limited means, but we do want to offer a $25,000 reward for the safe return of Kay, and the conviction of the person or persons involved in her disappearance," said Kay's husband Danny Harrelson.  

Danny says he's starred at the sketch of the man who was last seen with his wife and Merimon. He's even had professionals remove the glasses and beard from the image, but he says he just doesn't know who this man is.  Danny says that Kay is a loving wife and mother, and she is also very quiet.  He says she would not have gotten into a car with a stranger. 

"My wife and I talk on the phone eight to ten times a day, if there was something going on, I would have know about it. I'm just as baffled as everybody else is," said Danny.  Danny and Kay have been married for the past 27-years.  Danny also tells us his wife takes blood pressure medication that she needs every day, so that's also adding to his worry.

Police tells us that since they don't have any evidence that a crime was committed, they have to investigate this case as a missing persons case. 

61-year-old Peggy Merimon and 51-year-old Kay Harrelson have not been seen or heard from since last Wednesday.  They were last seen leaving the Lubbock State School around noon.  A pair of work keys and their cars were left behind.  They were seen getting into a car with a middle-aged, white man with a gray beard.  He was driving a rusty gray or silver four door sedan.

If you have any information, please call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
