A $4,000 cash reward is being offered for information regarding what happened to a missing Screven County man.

The reward offered is a joint effort between the Screven County Sheriff's Office and the family of Travis Tankersley, said Screven County Sheriff's Investigator Brett Dickerson.

Tankersley was last seen leaving a friend's house on Buck Creek Road in early August, he said.

There has been no evidence pointing to foul play, said Bahan Rich, special agent-in-charge of the Statesboro office of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Screven County Sheriff Mike Kile said a shirt that was determined to be Tankersley's was found near a dumpster in the area where he was last seen.

Tankersley is white, 38, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 140 pounds.

Search crews, including tracking dogs, horseback riders and helicopters, have combed the areas around Buck Creek Road and Newington Highway (Highway 24) in Screven County, Kile said.

Anyone with any information about Tankersley's whereabouts may contact the Statesboro GBI Office at (912) 871-1121 or the Screven County Sheriff's Office at (912) 564-2013. Tips may be made anonymously.
