While shares and comments offering well wishes and prayers from strangers poured in on the sheriff's page, a message from Kenneth's wife appeared as well.

Meredith Sutherland wrote:
"Please, please if you have seen my husband let someone know!!!!"

Kenneth's wife didn't respond to the countless responses from people throughout the Capital Region but her plea seemed to add some urgency to the situation.

While little is known about his disappearance other than where he was last seen and what he was wearing, WGNA attempted to reach out to Meredith in hopes of finding out any additional info that could lead to his safe return.  Understandably, given the circumstances, we hadn't heard back by from her by the time this was posted.

If you had contact with Sutherland or have info on his whereabouts, call the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office at 518-828-3344.
