    Here's the latest from a local news channel: Missing Raleigh man's car found crashed in SC

    There's not really a good, straight way to get from his house to the location his car was found, it's roughly 3+ hrs. from his house. Very strange.
    Just a few of the many questions I have:
    Did anyone know he left in the vehicle? What was his destination? When did he leave? When did he expect to be back? Did he have a cell phone with him? What, if any, results have been obtained from trying to track cell phone, if attempted?

    This case is wacky, IMO. Is the lack of information because Mr. Bankhead is from Raleigh, NC and his car was found abandoned and wrecked in York County, SC?

    Does LE even think he was in the vehicle when it crashed? Had it been stolen sooner? If he was in the vehicle when it crashed, he could've suffered a medical event before the crash, or injury/injuries afterward and time is of the essence. I'm not getting a sense of urgency here and it's making me wonder why. I'm also getting a sense of something similar to what happened to Michael Jordan's father, Man convicted of killing Michael Jordan’s father seeking a new trial and I hope that I'm wrong.

    ETA: I just found an update on the York County Sheriff's Office webpage--they planned to start a ground search in the area where Mr. bankhead's car was located, in the area of Cureton Ferry Rd. and Pottery Rd. York County Sheriffs, SC | Official Website

    Wooded, hilly, semi-rural. Catawba is near an Indian reservation.

    I would really like to know where he was heading when he left his home. There's a good chance he was car jacked at this point. I hope LE are getting finger prints out of the wrecked car. IMO

    The article states the vehicle was crashed and left with it's "doors" open. Plural. More than one person in the car? Carjacking and they crashed the car and left? Where is Martin?

    I am somewhat local, I live in the next county over. There have been no updates as far as I have heard on our local news. The area is rural and not really a pass through to anywhere. I think about him often but unfortunately, being so close to Charlotte, we are consumed with news reports of crime in the city and these stories are soon forgotten about.
