GAINESVILLE, Va. -- Billy Hurley III made a public plea on Tuesday at the Quicken Loans National in the search for his father, Willard Hurley Jr., who has been missing for the last nine days.
Hurley cried as he explained that his father, a retired police officer, hasn't been seen since getting into his 1998 Ford F150 truck and driving away from the family's Leesburg, Va., home on July 19 with some clothes and cash.
The Naval Academy graduate, who said he learned his father was missing on Monday afternoon, said his father does not have a history of mental illness. Hurley's mother has filed a missing persons report with local police.
The 33-year-old PGA Tour player said he is in this week's field with the hope that his father will see him on TV and return home. In lieu of that, Hurley hopes someone who has seen his father will come forward and help the family locate Hurley's father.
