    Why is there no photo of this man? No image of the make and model of the car? Did the Sheriff's dept release this to the press or did the family/friend who reported him missing? It is so important to get the BEST and MOST complete information out there for the public to be in the BEST position to help. And Time is critical. Personally I would like to see the local news agencies independently or the POLICE furnish the agencies an IMAGE OF WHAT THE ACTUAL LICENSE PLATE LOOKS LIKE. With so many different plates available in NC, it might just make a difference! Know it can be done, watched the GBI and GA sheriff's depts do it, also watched TV stations in TN do it. Why not here in NC? We have a FANTASTIC Sheriff in Wayne County. Very puzzled why this keeps happening.
