HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -
The loved ones of a missing 29-year-old Hamilton man gathered together on the one-year anniversary of his disappearance.
Debbie Estes says she and her son, Billy DiSilvestro, would have lunch together every Monday and go shopping. But on Monday, Feb. 7 of last year, Debbie never heard from her son, and Billy DiSilvestro hasn't been seen or heard from since.
Estes has made the inside of her vehicle a search kit, and the outside of her car a moving billboard.
"I have flyers in here, my walking sticks to go searching, my lights, I have gloves, stuff to put water in, boots for other people to wear. This is what I do, this is what my life is consumed with right now," she said. "Who else is going to do it but me, I mean that is my kid. I'll never give up on him ever."
Estes wears shirts with her son's face on it wherever she goes, but despite her efforts, her son is still missing and could be anywhere.
Estes says Billy had a history of seizures, and the health problem was magnified when he drank alcohol. That was the case when he went missing one year ago.
"I know that's what he went out to do is have a drink. As far as I know he went out walking at 3 o'clock in the morning and vanished."
Dozens of organized searches have been conducted to find Billy, including some that have involved national organization Texas EquuSearch. Debbie says she searches every chance she gets.
"I go down in sewers and drains. I've searched houses I probably shouldn't even be in but I go," she said.
Support from the Hamilton community and complete strangers has been overwhelming. This week, Lamar Advertising put a billboard up along By-pass 4 in Fairfield Township free of charge.
Debbie just wants some type of closure.
"The not knowing is the worst. I can grieve but you can't grieve for something you know nothing about," she said.
A $5,000 reward is being offered to anyone who has any information on Billy DiSilvestro's disappearance. Billy is a white male, 6'1", 180 pounds with short black hair. If you have any information, please call CrimeStoppers at (513) 352-3040.
