    VA - Dashad "Sage" Smith, 19, Charlottesville, 20 Nov 2012



    HARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WTVR)–He was last seen on Tuesday, November 20, in the 500 block of West Main Street.

    Charlottesville Police said that Smith had phone contact with Erik T. McFadden that Tuesday and then told friends he was going to meet someone on West Main Street.

    Smith has not been seen or heard from since. McFadden, who at the time was living on 14th Street NW, confirmed to Investigators that he did have phone contact with Smith and planned to meet Smith near the Amtrak Station on West Main Street.

    McFadden told police the meeting never took place. Police have reason to believe that McFadden has now left the Charlottesville area.



    Police and family report that Smith occasionally wears women’s clothes and goes by the name Sage.

    Smith’s mother, Latasha Grooms, said she went to pick up her son in Charlottesville for Thanksgiving and was unable to find him.

    Smith is 19 years old, 5’11″, 130 pounds and was last seen wearing a black jacket, dark grey sweat pants, black scarf and grey boots.

    Flyers have been distributed around Charlottesville and a candlelight vigil will be held Wednesday night, Nov. 28, at Lee Park.

    He is gorgeous, no matter what gender he dresses as. I hope no-one took advantage of his looks
    Whilst being on Websleuths makes me more aware of what evil there is in the world, it also reminds me that the best people are among us as well.

    Love you all!

    Since I am from Baltimore and Erik's facebook page says he is a graduate from a school in the area, I contacted a local news station to ask them to run the story. Erik may still have ties here. They asked me to send the info so we will see.

    Says he studies at Lincoln U. Would he have gone back there, assuming he was on break for Thanksgiving?

    Yes, he certainly is. I hope not either. We don't know enough yet, but I am feeling this is hate crime related. JMO.

    A very striking young man, I hope he is found soon. His family and friends must be missing him terribly, just by looking at his pictures I get a very fun vibe from him, which only hints at how he must be in person.

    I'm holding out for a happy ending on this one, hopefully he just needed a break and has taken off for a while. Come home soon, Dashad.

    Unfortunately, I feel much the same, which is upsetting. There were probably a few people that felt very uncomfortable with the way Dashad dresses, and I'm worried that they may have come across him while on his way to meet a friend that night and taken advantage of the situation.

    Is West Main Street a busy area on a Tuesday night?

    LE have come out and said they have evidence to suggest he has left the area, so hopefully my thoughts are way off base.

    I get the same vibe. Judging from his FB pic comments, it looks like he is very loved by friends. I may also add, what a wonderful sense of fashion he has! I truly hope he is safe
