He has a fb page that I can't link...on iPad. He's married. Family seems very important. Spent Thursday alone viewing ft. Macon.
His FB: https://www.facebook.com/kent.t.hinkson
The car he was driving looks like this:
Not quite sure WHY I feel this way, but this reminds me of when Christian author Henry Blackaby went missing last summer (actually just about a year ago) - also in his 70's.
Hope this one ends as well as Dr. Blackaby's!
Here is a map. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Rit...35c91f59b9a1588c!2m2!1d-78.956628!2d35.922262
The locations are kind of vague - these are the closest Rite Aid and Wells Fargo to 'Woodcroft, Durham'
he disappeared on their 48th wedding anniversary? how awful for his wife. i'm praying for his safe return.
Hillsborough Road is about ten miles north of where he should've been.
Wonder what he got at Rite Aid? Was he picking up meds with street value?
it's interesting that earlier it was mentioned that the "family traced his cell phone" to a specific area. I was following the Jennifer Huston case and there was a lot of discussion about how LE needed a warrant to get her cell records. It was said that even if the family shared an account, they would only have access to the call history etc., not location of the phone. But that seems not to be the case here.
in the missing durham man case, it's likely he has an iphone and the family used the "find my iphone" web application that is available on icloud.com. if you have the person's itunes account username and password and they have "find my iphone" turned on you can track their phone as long as it is powered on. once powered off it will show the last location of the phone prior to powering off.
this is entirely separate from cell phone records available from your service provider. there are some records you, as an account holder, have access to - mainly calls received and placed. there are other records the service provider has - content of texts, cell tower pings, etc - that are only available to LE and even then only with a search warrant. a search warrant is only given if there is evidence of a crime. this is what took so long in the jennifer huston case. her husband was able to use "find my iphone" and certainly could have given LE the calls received/placed list available by logging in to the service provider's web site, but LE likely wanted the tower pings and other information available only with a warrant. since they couldn't prove there was a crime in jennifer's case, it likely took longer to get the warrant to get the information.
I have friends who have some kind of app on all of their phones that allow them to track each other. And they do. I don't know if it's a find my phone app or some other app, but my friend was even able to track her ex husband while he was "deployed" as a govt. contractor overseas. Her current boyfriend traveled a lot and she was always pulling it up..."hm....wonder where he is today..."
So it looks like his car was found at an apartment/condo type place. And it's only about a mile from the Wells Fargo.
Ah, thank you for that info! I wasn't thinking about the "find my phone" feature - I immediately jumped to the tower pings. That makes much more sense.
I put the 1800 block of Williamsburg Rd. into Google Maps (where the car was found) and it's heavily residential and doesn't look like a well traveled road at all. The 1800 block, at least, looks very much like a "back road" through a section of condominiums and apartments.
A little more information..
The link also has info about his background, home life, personality..
Sad case. My prayers are with his family.
Here's a map...
Real quick on that...most major carriers, sprint and Verizon FE, have family locator apps. Depending on the type of phone, it can get within a tenth of a mile. Even with a phones gps turned off it will locate within one mile, Verizon even tells you the speed the phone is traveling at...very useful for teens!
Oh my, this doesn't sound good, them finding his car.
DURHAM, N.C. — The vehicle of a missing Anglican priest was found in the 1800 block of Williamsburg Road in Durham Wednesday night, but the 71-year-old man has yet to be found.
