Tarboro Man Still Missing And In Dire Need Of Medical Treatment

Authorities in Edgecombe County continue their search for a man they say left a rest home in Tarboro Sunday morning and hasn't been seen since. Police are looking for 47 year old Clarence Jenkins, who investigators say is a resident of Britthaven Assisted Living Facility on Western Boulevard in Tarboro. Jenkins' family says he has severe medical problems and is a week behind in dialysis treatment for his kidneys. Clarence Jenkins was last seen near Sherwood Avenue in Tarboro Sunday evening. Lawmen now believe he could be in the Rocky Mount area. Britthaven Incorporated owns and operates the facility and says since it is an assisted living facility, residents are free to come and go as they choose. A spokesperson says they are fully cooperating with authorities in the case.
