Urgent Call to Support

Help Us Bring Our Missing Loved One Home

Dear Friends, Family, and Caring Community,

I come with a heavy heart longing to finally have some information on the whereabouts of my grandpa, seeking your support and solidarity in our time of distress. Our beloved JOSEPH TAYLOR has been missing for going on four years on June 16,2023, and we are consumed by worry, and an unyielding desire to bring him back safely to our embrace. It has been a very long time since we last saw him. Gone with no notice, no signs, and we have no clue what to do but leave it in God's hands. After 4 years with no support from the police, no information stumbled across, no known location of him or any of his belongings, I PRAY for answers for PEACE for him and for our family. Joseph Taylor, missing at age 79 (now 83), 5'9 in height about 160lbs in weight, went missing from a friends home on Wexler street in Savannah, GA June 16,2019. Joseph was supposed to be on his way to his daughter house for Father's Day dinner after visiting a friend but he never arrived. His apartment had no clues or signs of him preparing to leave. In the days leading up to him going missing he struggled with memory issues in which he was scheduled to get testing and exams done in the following weeks to assess for dementia. Joseph Taylor had a 2016 Toyota Tundra that was later on found 2 days later in Millen Ga. Since that day no evidence, clues, or video footage of him has been reported.

Joseph is more than just a missing person; he is a cherished member of our family, a dear friend, a beacon of light in our lives, a former pastor, a helping hand, a backbone and much more. His sudden disappearance has left a void that cannot be filled until they are found and reunited with us. We refuse to give up hope, it's been a long journey and we cannot do it alone.

please pray for for his daughter left behind, Lillian. As all of us have lost him and our lives have changed since that day.

As we embark on this arduous journey to locate Mr. Taylor we realize the extensive resources required to conduct a thorough search effort. We are organizing this fundraising campaign to assist us in hiring private investigators and raising awareness about Joseph Taylor's disappearance.
