It’s been one year since Great Bend resident Charles Everett McHenry III, 27, disappeared.
Area law enforcement agencies, along with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, are still looking into that missing person case, as well as the 2015 disappearance of Megan Foglesong from Rice County.
According to the Rice County Sheriff’s Department and the Barton County Sheriff’s Office, Foglesong was last seen in late November 2015. Her last known whereabouts were at Alden. She was also possibly in Great Bend, Ellinwood or Larned at the time of her disappearance.
She has not had any contact with family or friends since her disappearance. There has been no cell phone activity or social media contact.
“We have followed up on every lead without any success,” Barton County Sheriff Brian Bellendir said. “The case is still under investigation and people are asked to call in with any information in regards to her whereabouts.”
Foglesong is described as a white female, 23 years old, with sandy brown to blonde hair and green eyes. She is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs approximately 150 pounds. She has several tattoos.
“This case is still under investigation by the Rice County Sheriff’s Department and KBI,” Rice County Attorney Scott McPherson said. “No arrests have been made in regarding this case and we are asking anyone with information on her whereabouts to contact the Rice County Sheriff’s Office or the KBI.”
McHenry’s disappearance remains under investigation as well.
“Since the reporting of McHenry’s disappearance, the Police Department along with the Barton County Sheriff’s Office and KBI has conducted an exhaustive search and investigation,” Great Bend Chief Cliff Couch said. “In spite of these efforts, McHenry has not been located.”
According to the Great Bend Police Department, he went missing from Great Bend May 6, 2016, and was last known to be driving an unknown make 2-door black vehicle with an unknown tag number.
McHenry, now 28 years old, is 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs approximately 180 pounds. He has black hair and black eyes and has tattoos on his left arm – a cross that says Tyler on his upper arm, and an eagle with a flag on his lower arm.
If citizens do come across any information that might be helpful in either case, they are asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 620-792-1300 or 888-305-1300 or the Great Bend KBI office at 620-792-4353.
