    Donnie Martin III was last seen August 3rd near 10 Mile and Dequindre.

    It was around 11:30 that morning, when he left his tree service job.

    Donnie’s dad is worried that his son’s opioid addiction from being hurt on the job could be the reason why he’s missing.

    Donnie could be in Madison Heights or in the area of State Fair and John R in Detroit.

    August 10th article:

    Donnie Ray Martin III, 31, has not been seen since he left his job in the city at a tree trimming service about noon Aug. 3.

    “He had just gotten paid,” said Madison Heights Detective Sgt. Mark Zupec. “At this point it is unknown if he possibly doesn’t want to found or if he met with foul play.”

    Martin’s girlfriend was the last person to hear from him when police say he sent her a text about 20 minutes after he left work.

    Martin’s father reported him missing. He and Martin’s girlfriend have been unsuccessful trying to reach him on his cell phone.

    “They are worried about his safety and where he might be,” Zupec said. “And his family have been looking for him as well.”

    Zupec said police have tried to discover Martin’s whereabouts by finding a location signal from his cellphone but it appears the phone has been turned off.

    Martin was known to frequent the area of John R Road and State Fair in Detroit, though police released no details of why he visited neighborhoods there.

    It is believed Martin visited the area before he went missing.

    Since last week Madison Heights police have canvassed the area with pictures of Martin and have approached different people on the street to see if they recognized the missing man.

    Several detectives have been there between 7 mile and 8 mile on John R and west all the way to Woodward,” Zupec said. “They also handed out photos to the Hamtramck and Detroit police departments.”

    Police found people in the area who recognized Martin’s picture but nobody could place him there in the time since he went missing.

    “We have gotten calls about deaths in the area but these have been ruled out,” Zupec said.

    Anyone with information about Martin or who may have seen him after noon Aug. 3 is asked to contact Madison Heights Police at 248-585-2100 or Crime Stoppers at 800-773-2587.

    When last seen Martin was wearing a red T-shirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes. He has multiple tatoos on his hands and arms, including one in Chinese on his neck, and piercings below his right eye and in his left nostril, according to Crime Stoppers.

    Nov 3:

    "*His family has been desperately searching for him in Madison Heights, Detroit, Flint, and other areas of Michigan. They've searched in abandoned buildings and neighborhoods but have been unsuccessful.

    According to Donnie's father, the detectives working on the case are clearly overwhelmed which is why they are now turning to community members to help provide any answers that could lead to Donnie, or give them some type of closure. They've even offered up a cash reward for to $2,500 for information that could help this case."

    Is there anyone here that is familiar with the area, who could tell us about the part of town he was known to frequent?

    I'm familiar with the area. State Fair and John R is about as bad as it gets. Nobody frequents this neighborhood unless they are looking for drugs. There is no other reason to frequent this area. The only businesses that are open are chop shops. It is gang infested and high crime. It is full of abandoned houses and businesses. Also lots of empty lots and abandoned alleys. It's also a dumping ground for stolen property and bodies. Even if someone in the neighborhood knows what happens to him, they aren't going to tell. The neighborhood isn't far from his work either. Absolutely no reason you would go from Madison Heights to this neighborhood unless you are wanting drugs. If he met his unfortunate end here, there is a good chance his remains could be in one of the many abandoned buildings in this neighborhood.

    Thank you for your insight. I figured that was the case, but it always helps to have as much information as possible. I hope so much for a good outcome, but it seems quite grim.
