missing police line 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (12/9/13) - The investigation into missing person, Wilbur “Willie” Anthony Pate, began when he was reported missing by his family in Nov. 2012. The ongoing investigation has extended from Kentucky into Indiana and Tennessee, and has involved numerous law enforcement agencies. Detectives are releasing new information they hope will produce more tips from the public.
 
The last known citing of Wilbur Pate was previously reported as the Walmart store located at 5031 Frederica Street in Owensboro, Kentucky on Nov. 14, 2012. The investigation now shows that after Pate left the Walmart, he traveled to a residence in the 300 block of Charmwood Court in Evansville, Ind. where he was residing with a male named Kevin L. Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald reported that Wilbur Pate then gathered his belongings and left in his 2004 Ford Escape. This is the last time Pate was seen.
 
Five weeks later, on December 23rd, 2012, the Owensboro Police Department reported that the blue 2004 Ford Escape owned by Wilbur Pate was located by the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office on Highway 405 in Yelvington, Kentucky. The vehicle was unoccupied at the time.
 
Search warrants executed by multiple agencies involved in this investigation have led to the discovery of several items belonging to Wilbur Pate. The recovery locations for those items have spanned multiple jurisdictions. The Owensboro Police Department is asking for help from hunters and land owners in the Evansville and Vanderburgh County, Indiana areas to be vigilant for anything that may seem suspicious. If anything is located, or you have any information on the whereabouts of Wilbur Pate, contact the Owensboro Police Department at: (270) 687-8888.
