Businessman Ahmet Karatag is searching for his 80-year-old father, who went missing nine years ago on his way back from his village in Koulhisar. And on the D-100 Highway.
Nazim Karatag, father of 7 children, living in Sushehri district of Sivas, moved to the village of Sutlus, 22 km from Koolhisar, where he was born and raised on June 10, 2013.
Karatag, who regularly visits his village, set off on foot to return to his home in Sushehri. Karatag, who was said to have left his village on the same day, was never heard of again after that day.
First, the children, who tried to call their father in their own way, reported the situation to the police and Gendarmerie without any results. A search was conducted in the area with the participation of many genders to find the old man on the basis of the missing application.
A detailed search with the help of helicopters and search and rescue dogs yielded no results. Despite all the searches in the last 9 years, no trace of karate has been found so far.
Ahmet Karatag, a grocer in Saria, returned to his hometown after learning of his father’s disappearance. For two months, he searched for his father in all the surrounding villages.
Finding no sign, Karatağ continues her search with missing notices with pictures of her father and large banners hung at her workplace.
With the help of his friends, relatives, and village associations, he pasted advertisements at workplaces, listening facilities, and gas stations on the highway between Istanbul and Sivas, and on the D-100 Highway.
Reflecting his longing for his father in his poems, Karatag failed to reach any result despite all his efforts.

“We couldn’t find any clues”
Ahmet Karatag told the Anadolu Agency (AA) that his father always went to and from their village.
Explains that his father sometimes stays in the village at night and sometimes returns for the day, and when he leaves his uncle or neighbors give him hospitality. She’s on her way back. Headman’s brother invites me to him, but he can’t stop my dad. Headman’s brother calls my brother who lives in Sushehri and tells him that my father is coming. My brother is not interested either, he always does. They go out, but they can’t find it. It is, “he said.
Karatag said that after the news of his father’s disappearance, he and his other brother went to Sivas and took part in the search.
Explaining that they had not heard from their father since that day, Karatag said:
“We did not find any clues. Gendarmerie came, the helicopter was searched. We searched a lot, but we did not find. I searched for two months. We searched wherever we could go or were found. We searched by car.” We announced. Some people said, ‘We’ve seen it here and there,’ but we found nothing. If the animal had eaten it, we would have found its remains. It had no money in its pocket. He had no property. He had no enemies. “
Karatag noted that his father, who has epilepsy and age-related dementia, had disappeared several times in Istanbul, but was soon found.
“I have an acquaintance, I made him posters. I was in my town at the time. We have an association. Friends in the association are from Istanbul to Sivas Sushehri.” They hung posters at facilities and gas stations. We hung it all over Sivas, along the road between Koolhisar and Sushehri. We hung it everywhere inside Sushehri. ” Says
“I would have celebrated Father’s Day if he had been here.”

Karatag said, “If he had died, we would have buried him,” and continued:
“My last mother died, we buried her. Its location is clear, but not like my father’s. If I could find her walking stick, if I could find it I would say ‘here’. It was hard, these years. Every moment is hard when I think about it. God does not lose hope. If I find something, shoes, anything, that is enough for me. Now I am after finding something. Dad is dear. If my dad was here, I would celebrate his father’s day. I would hug and hug him. Nothing could be done for him. “
Karateg called on the authorities, particularly Home Minister Suleiman Soylu, to examine the records of the elderly care homes.
