Josh McLamb and his friend Steven Howard spent time yesterday visiting
friends and riding around. Steven had become intoxicated, agitated and
demanding during that time and had called his girlfriend, Lindsey
VanWeest, to take him home.
The two pulled over on the side of the road near the Haw Road to wait for
Steven’s girlfriend to arrive. After about 45 minutes of waiting, Josh left on
foot to walk to his residence. Steven was sitting in the car listening to the
radio and waiting on the girlfriend.
When Lindsey VanWeest arrived, Steven was not to be found.
Triad Blookhounds were called to the scene and was able to only track
from the car to a short distance away on Highway 150. No one has yet
heard from Steven, and family members are extremely concerned.
Detective Dan Hardy asks anyone with information about the incident
or has knowledge where Steven may be located to call him at 634-
3232 or call Crime Stoppers at 336-349-9683.
