MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - The search continues for a Mid-South man who disappeared under mysterious circumstances.

"That's why we need some closure. So we can feel a little better 'cause this hurt. Not knowing where he at or what happened to him. It really do hurt," said Tonia Bryant.

Bryant's boyfriend, James Irby, disappeared nearly a month ago. Irby vanished on May 4th after a traffic stop on Highway 61 near Walls, Mississippi. Tonia says she was on the phone with James during that stop and could hear police demand he get off the phone.

"The last thing I heard they was tussling like they was fighting or something. Like something was going on. Last thing I heard was him breathing real hard. You know it's going through my mind as I talk about it. Something might have been happening to him then," she said.

Police say they tried to arrest James Irby for having marijuana and that's when they say he ran. After searching for the 6'1" missing man, Tonia said police told the family they believe he fell into a swamp hole or riverbank - but the family isn't buying it and believe the police may know more.

"Whatever happened to James I just want whoever did it to come forward. We just need him so we can find him dead or alive. We just want him," said Bryant.
