    CALERA – Despite having a decades-old case on their hands, the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Squad has not given up on its search for 46-year-old Olen Guy Kirby. Kirby, who was referred to as “Guy” by friends and family, went missing on March 13, 1975.
    According to investigators, Kirby left home that day to work as a shoe salesman and never returned home. He was reported missing when he did not return home that night.
    “It’s been 43 years, one week and one day that he’s been missing,” Investigator Ray White said during a March 21 interview.

    Kirby was last seen in the area of Alabama 25 near Calera during the evening. Right before sunset, he had been spotted in Shelby in a truck with a group of people, according to investigators. All of the members of that group are now deceased.
    “At this point, we feel they may have knowledge, but were maybe not directly involved in his disappearance,” White said.
    He was also reportedly seen in Alabaster, close to where America’s Thrift Store now stands. His niece, Mary Ruth Furline, said he had planned on visiting a revival that had come to the area that night.
    After the news of Kirby’s disappearance broke, searches were conducted, flyers were distributed, polygraph tests were given and members of the community expressed a deep concern.
    “They’re still concerned. They still ask questions. ‘What happened to Guy Kirby?'” White said.
    When DNA testing later became available, White said investigators took samples from family members.

    Kirby’s brother-in-law said he believes the initial investigators on the case could have begun searching in a more timely manner.

They said he was last seen walkingnear county roads 47 and 42 in Shelby, Alabama and selling his masonic shoes when he vanished. they believe someone was likely after any money he had on his person. Rumors have it that he was killed and placed in the county sawmill and expelled into the river.
