Walter Amey was bicycling on Abner Place at around 9 p.m. Saturday when he was hit. The driver left the scene and has not yet been identified.

Amey's daughter Monica, who lived with her father, hopes that raising awareness about the case will help catch the driver.

"No one has seen anything," Monica Amey said. "I'm hoping and praying that someone will come forward."
