Sister of missing man doesn't want to give up hope

IDAHO CITY - Steve Kalo-Gerakos has been missing for five months and his sister is not giving up in her search for answers.

Christmas was the last time Maria Kalogerakos heard from her brother, Steve. He was supposed to call her back and never did.

That's why she was in Idaho City for the second time on Tuesday.

She says her brother had moved back to the area just three months before he disappeared. Now that the snow is melting, Maria got on a plane with a pilot specializing in search and rescue.

They circled the skies looking for any sign of Steve. While she hopes he's alive she says she's also realistic - but it's the not knowing that hurts the most.

"I don't know what to believe at this point," Kalogerakos said. "You have so much running through your head, there are so many unanswered questions."

The Boise Sheriff's office says Steve apparently got in a fight with his girlfriend and the man he was living with on the night of his disappearance. He was told to move out.

That was the last time anyone saw him. His car and belongings were all left at the house.

His sister is offering a reward of $10,000 hoping someone somewhere knows something.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Boise County Sheriff's office at 392-4411.
