COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) -- The search for a missing Monroe County man continues as the family offers a $20,000 reward for information on his location.

Wednesday morning, the Monroe County Sheriff's Department searched a gravel pit on Highway 45 near the Monroe-Lowndes County line.

Authorities say it is the latest body of water searched in hopes to learn more about the disappearance of William Harold Wright.

Wright, 69, was last seen on April 10 leaving a club near the Alabama state line in Lowndes County.

The gravel pit searched Wednesday morning was near Wright's home.

Sheriff Cecil Cantrell says there are two suspects in Lowndes County, but Lowndes County authorities declined to comment.

Wright was driving a white 2004 Ford Ranger pick-up with the word "EDGE" written in orange on the truck bed.

The vehicle has Mississippi license plate number MJ1138.

Anyone who knows where Wright can be found is asked to call the Monroe County Sheriff's Department at 662-369-2468 or the Lowndes County Sheriff's Department at (662) 328-6788.
