The Guilford County Sheriff’s Department is calling on the public for help in locating a man with dementia who has gone missing along the southern edge of Guilford County.
The man, who is presumed to be on foot, disappeared sometime this weekend and, on Sunday, Nov. 8, search efforts were unsuccessful.
Late Sunday night, the Guilford County Sheriff’s Department sent out a press release with a picture to media outlets and asked people to be on the lookout for the man.
According to the department, Anthony Wayne Jones left his house sometime between 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7 and 11 a.m. the following day. He lives at 6538 Mowery Road in Climax and is believed to be walking, so search efforts have been focused in that immediate area. Seen in the picture above, Jones is a 57-year-old, white male who is partially bald. He has long grey hair and long grey beard.
Jones is 5’10” tall and weighs about 200 lbs. According to the press release, he suffers from dementia and tends to walk along the roadway when he leaves home.
“He is usually friendly if spoken to,” the release states.
This weekend, sheriff’s deputies responded to the 6500 block of Mowery Road and searched the area for Jones – however, as of 10 p.m. Sunday night, they had not been able to locate him.
If anyone sees Jones or has any information regarding his whereabouts, they are being asked to contact the Guilford County Sheriff’s Staff Duty office at 336-641-3355.
