Mother speaks out about missing son


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Eight months after a Roswell man went missing, his family is desperate to learn what happened to him.

Kimberly Harrell said in a May 22 interview that her family has experienced nine months of struggle since her son, Fredrick Bersane, 39, went missing. She said they feel no closer to knowing if he is dead or alive than they did back in September when he went missing.

“I mean, it is one thing to lose a child and be able to bury him — this is different. It is like we can’t move on. We are stuck, you know? We are just stuck,” Harrell said.

Harrell reported Bersane missing Sept. 22 after she was unable to reach him for three days.

Before he went missing, Bersane had just been released from prison where he had been serving time on drug charges, Harrell said.

He had long been addicted to methamphetamine, but Harrell said Bersane — a father of two — is still a good person.

“I just want people to know he has a family. He might have been on drugs, but he was a good son; he is a good dad, a good uncle and a good brother,” she said.

Since he has gone missing, Harrell said she has driven in her car searching the streets for him, but to no avail.

Harrell said she has heard some rumors about her son’s fate but nothing has been confirmed.

When asked if there had been any new developments related to Bersane’s disappearance, Todd Wildermuth, public information officer for the Roswell Police Department, said he could not offer any particulars about the case at the moment, but that it remains an ongoing investigation.

Bersane is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs about 190 pounds with hazel eyes and brown hair. He also has tattoos on his neck, arms, legs, chest and back.

Harrell said she asks that people with any information contact the Roswell Police Department at 575-624-6770.
