Black lives matter.

Andre Gray is a 34 year old black man who has been missing for two months from his Lawrenceville home. Andre is also part of the LGBTQ community – according to his family, he came out when he was 30 and had recently been involved with someone. Andre is also known as Pokey or Pok’ie.

Andre disappeared on October 25, 2014.

Gray’s stepsister called when she couldn’t reach him by phone, didn’t hear his dog barking inside and saw his car wasn’t parked outside.

“I had her drive my car there because I’m shaking, I’m crying, I know that something isn’t right,” Gray-Tillman said.

Inside, she found blood on the sheets, and a big bloodstain that appeared to be covered with bleach. His comforter, laptop, cellphone and dog, Boss, were gone.

Police discovered his vehicle, which Gray-Tillman said was “somewhat burned,” in the North Side. A woman in New Kensington found Gray’s identification and other cards on a street and turned them in, she said.

Andre has been working as a hairstylist out of his apartment. His cousin indicated that he was involved with someone who he didn’t entirely trust. It is really important that the regional LGBTQ community step forward to help find Andre. It is important that we show that black lives matter and queer lives matter. It is important to share this information and ask others to share it. Someone somewhere knows something about Andre aka Pok’ie and perhaps you can help to connect them.
