NEWTON, N.C. – Catawba County Sheriff’s Deputies are requesting assistance in locating Joseph Barker for questioning in a shooting that occurred on April 23, 2019 in the 4700 block of Plateau Road in Vale, N.C. Joseph Barker was last known to be in the 4700 block of Plateau Road and was driving a black in color 1999 Toyota Camry NC Tag # CHX-2208.
