A search for a missing 25-year-old man continues in Burke County after his vehicle was found abandoned Tuesday off John River Loop Road.
ABC affiliate WSOC reports that Dustin Gray was reported missing from Statesville on Monday. His family says the man doesn’t know anyone in Morganton.
Tuesday afternoon, crews were searching along the river and in some of the marshy brush along the river.
“The area is thick. It actually does have a lot of swampy area. Of course, obviously, the river. It’s gonna be kind of treacherous,” Deputy Fire Marshal Cecil Huffman said.
If you see Gray or have any information, please contact the Morganton Police Department at 828-437-1211.
