GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - An Eastern Carolina mother is asking the public for help again to find her son who has been missing since early December.

22-year-old Khalil Jefferson was first reported missing on December 2nd. The last place he was seen was Greensprings Park.

Before Christmas, Khalil’s mother, Sonoma Jefferson, led a group of loved ones and strangers along the Greenville Greenway Walking Trail, looking for anything that could lead to finding her son.

On Wednesday, another search took place at Greenspring Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“Friday will be four weeks and I have not seen or heard from my son,” said Sonoma Jefferson.

Jefferson says her son left behind a note indicating he may have intended to harm himself.

Among those in the community contributing to the search efforts was, marine veteran Dominique Braswell. He says he also had mental health struggles.

“Feeling like you’re all alone and nowhere to turn. And you just get into a mindset that you are just low. And it is, a low, that you can’t really describe and you feel like there is only one way out,” said Braswell.
