LUMBERTON — A Lumberton man and a Pembroke man are missing in unrelated cases.
Brandon Benjamin Hucks, of Fred Road, Lumberton, has been missing since Thursday, and Kenneth McRae, of Locklear Road, Pembroke, has been missing since Oct. 31, according to Sheriff’s Office reports.
McRae, 49, was last seen by his mother at the Locklear Road address, according to Maj. Anthony Thompson, chief of detectives for the Sheriff’s Office. She said she has not heard from him since then and when she calls his cell phone, another man answers and says he is not there. He drives a 2007 gray Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck and his mother believes he may be in Fairmont or Rowland, Thompson said.
McRae is black, about 6-foot-1 and weighs 140 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
Hucks, 29, was reported missing Thursday by his sister after he called her and said he had sold his truck and needed help, Thompson said. According to Thompson, Hucks told his sister he needed $200 or “they were going to kill him.” He reportedly headed to Fairmont in a black Chevrolet Malibu with three other men.
Hucks is white, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs 125 pounds. He has brown hair, hazel eyes, a tattoo of a dragon on his upper arm and a tattoo on the right side of his neck reading, “Daddy’s Angel.”
Anyone with information about either man should call the Sheriff’s Office at 910-671-3100.
