With a lack of results from law enforcement, the family is turning to the public for help and asking anyone with information on Roberson to help. "I miss my husband, I need answers and I just want closure," said Regina Roberson, Roberson's wife of 29 years. "My husband has been made out to be someone he isn't." According to Chief Investigator Terry McCreight of the Dyer County Sheriff's Office, the investigation into Roberson's disappearance is still active, though without many factual leads. "The investigation is ongoing and we're following the leads people are giving us, but we don't have anything concrete and the disappearance is suspicious," said McCreight.

Roberson owned his own roofing company, C & R Roofing, where he taught his four boys how to work hard and taught them morals of life.

09/21/12 – Dyersburg , TN – Dyer County Awaiting Arrest In Karen Swift Case: The Dyer County Grand Jury meets the second week of October. It’s unclear if they will take up the Karen Swift murder case. It’s been almost an entire year since Swift was murdered in Dyersburg. The sheriff’s department has never made an arrest. They say there is a person of interest, but so far they aren’t naming any names. Some people in Dyer County are concerned the killer could still be living among them. “They need to find out who did that because everyone is on edge as far as getting out and riding in the country,” said Rob Roberson. Dyer County Sheriff Jeff Box says his office has looked at several people they think could be connected to the swift murder and narrowed it down to one. Box says they are waiting on nearly a hundred pieces of evidence still being examined by the TBI before an arrest is made. “It makes me feel uncomfortable you know. If there is a serial killer running around or something my wife goes out to the store at to places,” said Rob Roberson. A judge ordered Swift’s cause of death be sealed and not released until the trial.
