It’s been nearly two months now since the unexplained disappearance of a Guilford County man, but the Guilford County Sheriff’s Department, other law enforcement agencies, friends and family are all continuing to search to find out what happened to Stuart Lee Carter.
On Monday, Nov. 14, the Sheriff’s Department once again sent out a request for help – asking that anyone who has any knowledge of the man pictured above to contact the authorities.
The Sheriff’s Department has been looking for Carter – a 50-year-old white male who’s 5’8” tall, and who weighed about 120 pounds at the time of his disappearance – ever since he was last seen on Tuesday, Sept. 20 of this year.
According to one study conducted in 2016, 70 percent of all reported missing persons are either found, or voluntarily return, within 48 to 72 hours. So, many law enforcement agencies consider the first three days of a missing person’s case to be critical. Obviously, concern becomes elevated when someone has been missing as long as Carter has.
When last seen he was thought to be wearing blue jeans with holes in them, black Champion shoes and a polo shirt with a diamond pattern design. Carter was also reported to have been wearing an orange baseball cap.
In Greensboro, he’s been known to frequent the following areas: Old Julian Road, Alamance Church Road, and Summit Avenue.
The Sheriff’s Department is asking anyone who has any information regarding Carter’s whereabouts to please contact them.
Those who know something can reach Guilford County Sheriff’s Department Detective J.M. Allen by calling 336-641-2799. Anyone with information on the case may also call Guilford County Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000.
