A Hall County man’s disappearance more than two months ago adds to a list of 22 other active and open cases in the last 10 years.

The Hall County Sheriff’s Office has 23 active and open missing person cases in the last decade, which adds to the disappearances of missing people in nearby cities.

Kapiloff is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds with brown hair and green eyes.

The family has offered a $1,000 reward for information involving Kapiloff, who was last seen wearing a black jacket and black pants with a red shirt.

In Gainesville, the city police department released a lookout report on Jan. 13 for missing 16-year-old Dylan Martin. Martin was last seen in December while being transported to a foster home.

The highest-profile case has been the disappearance of Kelly Nash, a 25-year-old Buford man who disappeared on Jan. 5. The family of the missing man raised the reward last week to $50,000 for information on the Georgia Gwinnett College student.

Nash was last seen at his Jimmy Dodd Road residence in the early morning of Jan. 5, leaving behind his cellphone, wallet and vehicle.
