    Car fire sparks search for 86-year-old man in King; family fears he has been assaulted and kidnapped

    Police are looking for a missing 86-year-old King man whose car was found on fire in Winston-Salem.

    Arzell Tuttle may be in danger, according to King police. A Silver Alert was issued shortly before 8 a.m. Saturday.

    Police said emergency responders in Forsyth County were called to a suspicious fire on Kentucky Avenue in Winston-Salem on Friday. Arriving responders found a vehicle on fire with nobody inside.

    Communications contacted a family member of the vehicle’s owner to help find the registered owner, according to police. The family member was unable to find Tuttle, who lives in King.

    Police went to Tuttle’s home in the 700 block of East King Street and found “suspicious circumstances leading them to believe that the missing man was likely assaulted and kidnapped or possibly worse,” according to police.

    We are about to get ice and snow in the Triad area tonight. The only reason I would think they would take him with them is bank info. Praying for this man.

    Or, it is harder to prosecute with no body. I hate cases like this. People preying on the elderly. Seems like it is usually someone they know.

    NCmama, welcome to Websleuths!

    This is a very distressing case and I hope Mr. Tuttle is located quickly and all involved are found and brought to justice.

    ETA: This article was posted yesterday: Authorities will use helicopter to search for missing King man. It says the NC Highway Patrol was going to search the U.S. Highway 52 corridor between King and W-S for Mr.Tuttle.

    It is very distressing. And also shocking that it's so close. His house is just minutes from mine and I drive past it on my way to work most mornings.
