Tuesday marks seven years since Brian Sullivan was last heard from. He was 19 when he disappeared on July 8, 2007.

Sullivan was last seen just before 6 a.m. at Burger King on Chili Avenue, near Route 390. His 1995 red Pontiac Sunfire was found about six blocks away, at a remote dead end street at the end of Lexington Avenue. Brian's bank card, wallet and phone charger were still on the seat.

Brian's parents Tuesday presented the sheriff's office with a check for $3,200. The money was raised through a motorcycle run, bottle and can drive and garage sales. It will pay to send two investigators to a conference in Atlanta dealing with missing and unidentified persons.

Loved ones continue to hold out hope.

"If you don't have hope, then you're lost,” said Barb Sullivan, Brian’s mother. "We need answers."

Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn said the case has been frustrating, but police continue to have contact with the family and follow any and all leads that come in. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
