"Richard, if you're watching this, please come home, we miss you, we need you, Cammy needs you," says Shane Deenis' best friend of 13 years, Maria Morrell.

Family and friends came together Sunday, sharing hugs and their concerns, for a man they love and adore.

John Deenis reported his son, 25-year-old Shane Deenis missing on December 15th.

"I played an online game and he usually plays with me and he came out to talk to me and then he went downstairs, smoke a cigarette and I really didn't see him much that day," added Shane's Father, John Deenis.

John says Shane was not taking his bipolar medication, and that his son was feeling depressed before he went missing.

"One of the hardest things I had to go through. Shane is always the highlight of everything, he's always the center," replied Shane's Step Mom, Sarah Deenis.

Parkersburg Police are leading the investigation to find Shane.

Hundreds of his friends on Facebook are also expressing their concerns.

Christina Summerville says "You have so many people that love you just the way you are."

His family and friends would like nothing more than to see him back home where he belongs.

"He means everything to me, we've always been there for each other, we always been able to pick each other off the ground whenever one of us had a problem," Morrell said.

"He knows what he got to do or should do, if he's gonna do it, that's fine, but we're all still here," says John Deenis.
