RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Ohio - Family members are concerned after a Richmond Heights business owner went missing.
Richmond Heights police said 41-year-old Patrick G. Borally, of Lyndhurst, was last seen around 2:30 p.m. Monday. The owner of Borally’s Catering on Chardon Road could be driving a 2005 dark blue Dodge Caravan with the license plate “TAKEOUT,” which is used for the business. Borally’s personal vehicle is not missing.
Since Monday was a slow day, his family said he was taking the delivery van to get some mums for his house.
"He was supposed to pick up some flowers, be home around 5:30, 6 p.m. to take one of the kids to cross country practice," said his brother-in-law Tim Lawless. "He's usually no later than 10, 15 minutes, at that point in time they became a little bit worried."
By 9 p.m. that worry grew to fear and Borally’s wife reported him missing to Richmond Heights police. Cleveland police said authorities have checked with friends and area hospitals, but they do not have any information on his whereabouts.
Police are hoping someone has spotted either the father of three or the van.
"We're just beginning to get some small leads on people that have seen him in the area, but we still haven't located the vehicle," said Richmond Heights Police Detective Chuck Duffy, who is also a friend of Borally's.
"I've known him for 15, 16 years and it's totally uncharacteristic of him," Duffy said. "He's a family man. He's a hard worker trying to keep the business afloat and it's just not like him, something's amiss."
His family just can't figure it out.
"He had no enemies, there wasn't like anything going on," Lawless said. "No financial issues, all the things that might run through your mind, but there's nothing like that."
Anyone with information on Borally should contact the Richmond Heights Police Department at 216-486-1234.
