WILKES COUNTY, N.C. — The search continued this weekend for a Wilkes County man who has been missing for more than two years.
Jeffery Combs is listed on the Cue Center for Missing Person's site as an endangered case. Officials say he disappeared Oct. 23, 2008 from North Wilkesboro, about 40 minutes west of Winston-Salem. He was 41-years-old at the time.
This month, the SBI, Wilkes County Sheriff's Office and the CUE Center for Missing Persons renewed their search for Combs. Combs' mother told investigators he left her a note saying he had gone to find his stolen scooter and told her to come look for him if he was not back by dark.
“He would help other people whether he got anything out of it or not. The night he got missing, he was putting up the homeless people to keep them warm,” said Lucy Combs, mother.
Officers found his scooter and his clothing near a bridge on Suncrest Orchard Road but he has not been seen since.
Monica Caison, director of the CUE Center for Missing Persons, helped organize the search on behalf of the Combs Family.
"[Combs' mother] has waited a long time, she's asked for a lot of help and when she registered with the center we started immediately to get up here and get a search for her," said Caison.
