Man tied to cross draws small crowd on north Lubbock street

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Tuesday night a small crowd gathered in north lubbock to hear a message from a man who was tied to a cross. 

Gary Pringle is beginning what he calls a "personal mission" near Riversmith's at Avenue Q, near the Marsha Sharp Freeway. "I'm praying for several things," says Pringle.  "I'm praying I will be a better man, I'm praying that I will have a pure acceptable heart to a lady I love, and I'm hoping God will help us find Peggy Merimon."

"This is what is in his heart and wants to minister to people," says onlooker Andi Arias.

Pringle is a friend of Gearl Merimon, the husband of Peggy Merimon who went missing along with her co-worker Kay Harrelson almost three years ago. They disappeared from the Lubbock State School on August 9th, 2006.  

Volunteer searchers discovered Harrelson's body near Shallowater, but Merimon has never been found. Pringle says he plans to stay out on the cross until August 9th.
