    Durham, N.C. — Durham police investigators are searching for a 31-year-old man who was last seen nine days ago at his home on Kirk Road.

    John Russell Morris spent May 25 at a Durham Bulls game, his friends said Monday. After the game, he said he was driving to Kroger, but he and his yellow Jeep Wrangler have not been seen since.

    His roommate, Douglas Wright, said Morris' disappearance is completely out of character.

    The comments underneath the article are telling. This man has no living family members, he's been missing since May 25, was reported missing by friends within 24 hrs, yet a detective was not assigned to the case until yesterday. How sad. Shame on the Durham P.D. :(

    I feel like this is going to be a carjacking or an accident where his vehicle is not visible. I'm thinking of taking a drive up to Durham and just looking around for breaks in the vegetation along the road.

    I hadn't thought of a carjacking, but I had thought about an accident. It seems like a reasonable possibility. Maybe he was tired after working all day and then going to the game. He could have dozed off while driving. It rained that week but I don't think it rained on Friday so the roads shouldn't have been wet/slippery, but I guess it's possible. He could have just gone off the road for some other reason, though.

    Here's another picture of John and one of his jeep.

    There's more information about the jeep and about the case on the FB page that his friends have made. It's called Looking For John Morris.

    Thanks for the photos, Con.....you made a great point. Shame on the Durham PD. How could they not start searching for 9 days?!

    One thing for sure, that bright yellow Jeep might make it a bit easier to spot if an accident did occur and the vehicle is off a ravine, etc.

    I feel for this young man...his parents are deceased and he's an only child. He is blessed with kind friends though...and that's enough. Praying for them all.

    I knew he was missing and was wondering if it would show up here. Glad it did, I thought about contacting and admin person. I barely remember him, but this is still scary. Too close to home. :please: for his safety and for answers.

    That's a pretty significant age difference if the articles are accurate. Here's another link with the news:
    http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/11183076/

    ETA: WRAL TV reported that Jessica Summey is a prostitute, has a drug problem, is bi-polar and would not take her meds, and has a 2 year old daughter. Morris was sending money to her grandmother to help with expenses, not wanting Jessica to spend the money on drugs. LE would not say how he died.

    Good golly, I can't believe I didn't hear about this case until now, since I live in NC. What a horrible, horrible story. Horrible crime. So senseless. He sounds like the kind of person we need more of. Awful, awful.
