LAKELAND, Fla. — In our new segment “Gone,” Spectrum Bay News 9 Reporter Cait McVey and photojournalist Amanda Salvucci take a closer look at unsolved cases throughout Central Florida.

A reward of up to $10,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest in a two-year-old missing person case.

  • Brian Edward Klecha last seen in December 2017
  • Anyone with information asked to call 800-873-TIPS (8477)
  • More Polk County headlines

Brian Edward Klecha, 35, was last seen on December 27, 2017. He was making a bank transaction at MidFlorida Credit Union in Auburndale.

Agent Chuck Massucci suspects foul play in a case that stretches from Orlando to Tampa. Klecha’s mother, who says her son was very trusting and forgiving, believes those closest to him know something.

He has ties to Orange, Polk and Hillsborough counties and was an employee of the Disney Corporation.

"After two years, we continue to work leads in this case, but we need more information. Someone knows what happened to Brian or where he is now, and we won't stop until we know," said FDLE Tampa Bay Special Agent in Charge Mark Brutnell. 

Anyone with information is asked to call 800-873-TIPS (8477).

The case was the focus of Cait McVey's exclusive "Gone" segment earlier this week. You can watch her report above.
