Missing 22 year old's family and friends rally for awareness

Columbia, SC (WACH) -- Family and friends of a 22 year old missing man gathered Sunday in Cayce for an awareness rally.

Michael George was last seen before Christmas in the parking lot of Shooters Grill and Pub in Cayce.

Sonya Williamson went to school and grew up with Michael George's mother Helen, and when she found out Michael was missing she took action.

Williamson helped organize the awareness gathering.

"The gathering is to make sure everyone is kept with supplies as far as fliers to distribute places, and to make sure Michael's story does get out. The reason we're having it here is because Shooters is where it all started." said Williamson.

Michael's mother Helen George said she is happy people like Williamson are helping and showing how much they care.

"It feels good to have someone step up and take some of the burden off of me, because between trying to find Mike and trying to work, it's hard," said George.

If anyone has any information about the disappearance of Michael George call 1-888-CRIMESC.
