At his press conference ahead of this week's Quicken Loans National event, PGA Tour pro Billy Hurley III revealed that his father has gone missing without a trace, and the family is seeking the public's help to find him.
"Last Sunday -- nine days ago -- my dad took some clothes, he took some cash, he got in his truck and he drove away, and no one has heard from his since," said an emotional Hurley.

Hurley said his father has sound mental health, but that the family has no indication for why he might have left so suddenly.
His father was a police officer for 25 years in the same town where he currently lives, and where Billy Hurley was raised.
"[My parents] still live in the house that I grew up in in Leesburg (Virginia) and I'm just hoping that there’s a story that maybe he goes to PGATour.com to check my tee time or check my score, and sees this and understands that, Dad, we love you and we want you to come home," Hurley said.
Hurley did not take any questions following the announcement. He said he does plan to play in the tournament later this week, which is being played close to his hometown.
