Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release

Lincoln County Sheriff's deputies are asking for the public's help in locating a missing western Lincoln County man.

 On Friday (July 16th) at 4:31 pm deputies were dispatched to 2173 North Brook Number Three School Road, Vale, about a missing man.  The reporting party, Lillian Torres, told officers her cousin, Elijah Samuel Torres, 23, had gone missing and she was unable to contact him.  She also said his parents and brother had gone to visit in West Virginia but had not heard from him.

The missing man was last seen by relatives on Thursday (July 15th); and he also did not show up for work at Honey's Supermarket on Highway 10 in Catawba County that same day.  A deputy checked the area around Highway 150 west where Torres was reportedly seen on Saturday (July 17th) but did not locate him.  Relatives say Torres does not drive and  has an addiction to drugs.

Torres is six feet tall and weighs around 190 pounds.  He has brown hair and brown eyes.  He was entered NCIC as missing.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office at 704-732-9050, the Lincoln County Communications Center at 704-735-8202, or Lincolnton/Lincoln County CrimeStoppers at 704-736-8909.
