NC - Travis Lamont Lynch, 21, Middlesex, 24 December 2003
Investigators are reexamining this young man's disappearance and are asking for people to come forward that may have information. His family has never stopped looking for him.
Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
• Missing Since: December 24, 2003 from Middlesex, North Carolina
• Classification: Endangered Missing
• Date of Birth: March 6, 1981
• Age: 22 years old
• Height and Weight: 5'4, 180 pounds
• Distinguishing Characteristics: African-American male. Black hair, brown eyes. Lynch has a tattoo of the letter T on his right forearm and a birthmark near his mouth on the left side of his face.
• Clothing/Jewelry Description: A light brown t-shirt and blue jeans.
Details of Disappearance
Lynch was last seen on Christmas Eve, 2003. He had been drinking heavily at a friend's house, and he and his girlfriend went to her house on Claud Lewis Road in Middlesex, North Carolina so he could sober up. He was last seen leaving his girlfriend's home at 1:00 a.m., trying to get to his own home in Wilson, North Carolina. Lynch was supposed to call his girlfriend when he arrived, but he never did. He has never been heard from again and his white 1992 Pontiac Grand Am with the North Carolina license plate number RZS 4814 has never been found. His mother reported him missing on December 26.
It's uncharacteristic of Lynch to leave without warning. He has a violent temper and investigators theorize he got into a physical altercation with someone that resulted in his death. He may have been involved with drugs at the time of his disappearance and drugs may be a factor in his case. Authorities believe Lynch is deceased, but little evidence is available in his disappearance.
"SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS: Family, investigators seek to solve mystery following young man's 2003 disappearance"
Family members have no illusions there will be a happy reunion but they desperately need closure after living with their loved one’s disappearance since Dec. 24, 2003.
"Somebody knows something,” Jackie Lynch said.
"They never found his car, anything,” said his aunt, Avalean Lynch. "How does a man go missing in a car and you never find either one?”
The case was reopened this week by the Nash County Sheriff’s Office. In addition, a $5,000 reward has been attached to the case for information leading to an arrest and conviction, said sheriff’s investigator Miste Strickland.

Last month, a vigil was held for Travis. The reward was raised to $10,000.
A dozen years have passed since Jackie Lynch last saw her son Travis Lamont Lynch. Lynch, who was 21 years old at the time, left his girlfriend’s home in Middlesex in the early morning hours of Dec. 24, 2003, and has not been heard from since.
In the years since his disappearance, leads continued to come in but eventually the trail went cold. Capt. Tom Wells of the Nash County Sheriff’s Office said the case has never officially been closed, but remains a cold case.
Increased interest in Lynch’s disappearance last year led the Nash County Sheriff’s Office to investigate the case more thoroughly again. The reward for locating Lynch was just recently increased to $10,000. But Lynch’s case is still no closer to being solved.
