    WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) --It has been more than a week since 18-year-old Al'quon Flowers went missing. Brunswick County deputies and Wilmington Police are still looking for the man whose family says his background may have had something to do with the incident.

    "He's just a child that has been caught up in a situation that's not his own making," Al'quon's great aunt Theresa Greene said.

    Flowers disappeared July 19. Family members say they are sure he was targeted as part of some sort of gang violence.

    "Some of his brothers are in gangs," Greene said. "There are situations that have happened that I think is a retaliation from some of the stuff that they have done."

    "He's a follower, but as far as him being in a gang, you know, he just followed his brothers," Al'quon's father Garry Hines said. "They're his brothers."

    They believe opposing gang members kidnapped Flowers because of past events his family was involved with.

    Flowers was last seen on an unknown block of Red Cross Street on Tuesday, July 19, at about 3 p.m. His family believes that not long after that he was taken to Brunswick County.

    Al'quon Flowers

    Endangered Missing from Wilmington, North Carolina since July 19, 2011

    Age: 18 -- Height: 5'6" - 5'7" -- Weight: 135 lbs -- Hair Color: Black -- Eye Color: Brown

    Al'quon's nickname is Slim. He has a tattoo of the name "Keesha" on his neck, a teardrop on his face, the word "God" on one hand, and the word "Son" on the other hand.


    Al'quon was last seen in Wilmington, North Carolina at about 3:00 pm on July 19, 2011. Later that afternoon, his girlfriend called his cell phone, and he said he was in Navassa, North Carolina. He said he would be home within 10 minutes. He never arrived and has never been heard from again.

    Authorities believe Alan "L.A." Johnson picked up Al'quon in Wilmington and drove him to Navassa in a rented vehicle. Johnson is a person of interest in Al'quon's disappearance, but he has not been charged. Foul play is suspected.

    NC dad says teen son missing 4 years has been found dead

    http://wncn.com/2015/11/07/nc-dad-says-teen-son-missing-4-years-has-been-found-dead/

    The father of a teen who has been missing since 2011 said sheriff’s officials told him they believe they have found the remains of his son on Hooper Road in Brunswick County.

    Garry Hines, Al’quon Flowers’ father, said Thursday that he finally has a sense of closure and relief.

    “He’s a good kid, always been a good kid,” Hines said of Al’quon, who himself was a father of a young girl.

    “When Al’quon came to live with me, we hit it off good. He was my best friend. He taught me a lot. I miss him. He’s my son. What I want, I’m never going to get. The closure I got today is just going to have to be good enough,” Hines added.

    Al’quon Flowers was 18 years old when he went missing in 2011, two months after a murder incident at Club 609.

    NC_Wilmington -

    BOLIVIA -- Human remains found Nov. 5 in Leland are confirmed to be those of Al&#8217;quon Flowers, a Wilmington teen who went missing in July 2011, according to the Brunswick County Sheriff&#8217;s Office.

    The remains found in the woods at the end of Hooper Road were confirmed to be Flowers after a pathology report from East Carolina University in Greenville.

    Investigators discovered the remains after a federal inmate who was a suspect in Flowers&#8217; disappearance led law enforcement officers to the remains of the 17-year-old, said K.J. Tully, who led the investigation into the Flowers case.

    In 2011, Tully said there was not enough evidence to charge the lead suspect, Alan &#8220;LA&#8221; Johnson, 26, in the Flowers case, but Johnson was sentenced in 2013 to 50 years in federal prison for two Wilmington robberies. Both of those robberies occurred within days of Flowers&#8217; disappearance.

    His brothers should have taken more care to not involve him. Especially after he became a father. Something the mother said in one of the links led me to believe this son was not in a gang but hung with his brothers a lot (normal in my book). It is so sad that the most suffering falls on the parents and a baby girl who won't even remember him.

    Looking at a map of Hooper Rd., there is no way that the guy who led them to the remains could have anything but first hand knowledge and personal involvement in Al'quon's murder. I don't understand why the police can't charge him with that involvement either with conspiracy charges, accessory, or accessory after the fact. Something.

    I followed this case very closely from the get go. We went to the same high school, but not at the same time since I'm a few years older.

    I looked up Club 609, and I'm terrified that the place connected to his murder was in the same parking lot of a place I used to eat almost daily! I would order my food and eat in my car in that same parking lot! Little did I know I was eating in view of where a murder scene was! Sorry I just now found this out reviewing the case.

    I'm glad there is some closure for his family in this case with him being found and his murderer now behind bars.

    Something I found is that Al'Quon wasn't the only person to be found off of Hooper Road. In Dec 1979, a unidentified female was found there. http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...Female-957UFNC-13-56-Found-by-Hunter-8-Dec-79
