    Selbyville man still missing after leaving party in bare feet
    By DAN SHORTRIDGE • The News Journal • February 11, 2010

    There’s still no sign of a 29-year-old man missing since Tuesday night after leaving a Fenwick Island party in bare feet, state police reported this morning.

    Gregory R. Forte of Selbyville left a condo on South Carolina Avenue about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

    Police found Forte’s gray Jeep Grand Cherokee parked under a carport at the complex with the keys in the ignition, radio playing and driver’s door open. His cell phone was found with a dead battery, and his knit hat was found on a walkway leading to the beach.

    “We’ve tried our best” to search, said state police Sgt. Walter Newton. “Unfortunately, the elements have made it very difficult for us to do an expanded search. We did go out on the beach and canvassed the immediate area.”

    Forte’s Jeep is being processed for evidence at Troop 7. “We’ll see if that can give us any clues to where he’s at,” Newton said.

    Forte was described as 5 feet 11 inches tall, 155 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

    Police asked anyone with information on Forte to call (302) 645-6653.

    His family says they found his jeep running with the driver's side door open and the radio playing the next morning.

    Missing man was to start job this week

    http://www.delmarvanow.com/article/2...NEWS01/2130344

    By Alex Ruoff • Staff Writer • February 13, 2010

    SELBYVILLE -- Greg Forte was supposed to be standing at the head of the class next week, sharing his knowledge and passion with the students of Indian River High School.

    Instead, he has been the focus of a massive search effort, extending from Delaware Seashore State Park to north Ocean City.

    "We just love him so much and want him to come home," said his girlfriend, Kara Cunningham. "We just need him back."

    He made dinner for his mother at her home, went to Smitty McGee's Raw Bar nearby to meet friends and drove to a Fenwick Island condo to play Scrabble and talk ice hockey with about 10 of his buddies.
    ..............
    "It was like 45 degrees out and slushy," Linda Forte said. "That's why he took his shoes off. He had a change of clothes in the car."
    ...............
    His mother said her son likes to run by the dunes to see what the surf is like but he doesn't like the cold weather.

    The friends he was with have a slightly different story from the newspaper accounts.

    They apparently can't be sure but believe he WAS wearing shoes when he left. A sweatshirt and cell phone were both wet and found in the car, as well as the glasses he had been wearing.

    His hat was a baseball cap, not a knit hat, and was not found on the beach, but on the east side of the beach road.

    One pair of his shoes as well as his jacket were discovered at "the house" the next morning. My question is what house - the house where he gathered with 8 friends or his own house?

    UPDATE: Search for missing Selbyville man continues westward

    http://www.delmarvanow.com/article/2...inues-westward

    Staff Report • February 15, 2010

    FENWICK ISLAND — Police say the investigation into the Feb. 9 disappearance of Greg Forte is moving inland.

    Emergency crews and K-9 rescue teams have spent the past five days searching the beaches and summer homes near the South Carolina Avenue condominium where Forte, 29, of Selbyville was last seen.

    Since no clues to his whereabouts have been recovered, police said they will start searching places outside of the Fenwick Island area that Forte was known to frequent.

    More info from the facebook site:

    The car had NOT been tampered with (apparently this was a rumor that was floating around).
    quote from site:
    All of the signs signal that Greg changed in his car. Something happened before (like he fell and got very wet, possibly hit his head) or something happened when he left his car, but it does not appear that someone or something was at the car when he got there.

    So he changed clothes in the car...

    Delaware Police Scale Back Search For Missing Man

    Updated: Feb 17, 2010 02:17 PM EST


    Gregory Forte

    FENWICK ISLAND, Del.- Delaware State Police say they have scaled back the search for a missing Selbyville man.

    Police say 29-year-old Gregory R. Forte was last seen at a Fenwick Island condo with friends February 9.

    Police say they later found his car parked nearby with its radio on, driver's side door open, and keys in the ignition. Police also found his cell phone, but its battery was dead. His hat was found at a nearby dune crossing.

    There is no evidence of foul play, according to police.

    His mother, Linda Forte, said she believes he hit his head while walking outside the condominium there, has amnesia and is inside a nearby condo.

    Family, Friends Continue Search As Authorities Probe

    http://www.mdcoastdispatch.com/artic...cid=30&id=8171

    By Shawn J. Soper, News Editor
    Originally published February 19, 2010

    FENWICK ISLAND – Family and friends of a Delaware man reported missing last week in Fenwick Island continue to keep hope alive, but after a massive search effort throughout the area over the last several days has failed to produce any new clues about his whereabouts, the case is slowly moving away from a physical search to more of an investigation.

    Gregory R. Forte, 29, of Selbyville, was last seen around 11:30 p.m. last Tuesday at a small gathering of around eight people in a condominium on South Carolina Ave. in Fenwick. When he did not return home on Wednesday, family and friends became concerned and went to the area where he was last seen and found his vehicle, a gray Jeep Cherokee, in a covered condominium parking lot with the door open and the radio still playing.

    Forte’s sweatshirt and cell phone were both reportedly wet and found in the car. The cell phone battery was dead. In addition, the glasses he was wearing at the time of his disappearance were also found in the vehicle. Last week, it was reported Forte’s knit hat was found near the dune at the entrance to the beach. This week, however, it was not a knit hit but rather his favorite black baseball cap, and that it was found on the east side of the beach road and not on the beach.

    Other new details emerged this week. For example, it was learned one pair of Forte’s shoes as well as his jacket were discovered at the house the following morning. It has not been confirmed if Forte was wearing shoes when he left the house, but those with him that night believe he had shoes on when he walked outside.

    In addition, there is no evidence his footprints were leading to the beach although the area was hammered with blizzard conditions the day Forte’s disappearance was reported. The night before, a mix of rain, snow and sleet was falling on the area.

    Blizzard conditions in the area last Wednesday hampered the initial search effort somewhat, but when the weather cleared last Thursday, a massive search of the area including Fenwick Island, north Ocean City and areas north and west of Fenwick began in earnest. Delaware law enforcement officials along with hundreds of Forte’s family and friends combed the area searching for him or any evidence of his whereabouts.

    A helicopter search of the entire area was conducted as public and private search teams went door-to-door in Fenwick and in north Ocean City. Last Saturday, a team of dogs was taken through the Fenwick area, but no new evidence was uncovered. The search continued this week to no avail, forcing Delaware State Police to scale back their efforts somewhat.

    “We’re still looking, but obviously, the search effort has been scaled back to some degree,” Delaware State Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Walter Newton said yesterday. “At this point, the case is moving from an active search to more of an investigation.”

    Meanwhile, family members this week announced they are offering a $25,000 reward for information about Forte’s disappearance or his whereabouts. In addition, a fund in his name has been set up at the PNC Bank branch in Fenwick Island. The private search effort for Forte continues with an extensive flier campaign throughout Lower Delaware, Ocean City and even West Ocean City
