Raymond Alan Myers’ family has not heard from him in two weeks, and police are asking the public to help them find out where he is.

Myers, 54, sent his employer a text message Feb. 23 saying he was leaving his work truck in Greensboro, and he used his bank card at a McDonald’s restaurant in Burlington that day, Apex Police Capt. Ann Stephens said.

His cell phone was last known to be signaling a tower near Stokes Ferry Road in Salisbury later that Monday, and the information trail ends there, she said.

Police say Myers hasn’t given the indication he doesn’t want to be found, Stephens said. Bank accounts have not been touched, and people who are trying to disappear might be expected to take their money with them, she said.

“It’s very odd” for someone simply to not be heard from, Stephens said.

Myers’ family has posted a $5,000 reward for information on his whereabouts.

Apex police had reached out to law enforcement agencies in the areas where Myers appears to have last been, but that has produced no results, Stephens said. Greensboro police have been watching for the truck, a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado with license plate EL-9012, she said.

“It happened during the snow,” Stephens said. Police said it was possible that the truck slid off a road, but they have checked area hospitals without luck.

Myers has family in Bat Cave, in Henderson County, and in Ohio, but they have not heard from him, either, Stephens said.

Myers is 5 feet, 9 inches tall, weighs 160 to 170 pounds, is white and has blond hair and blue eyes, police said.

Stephens said police want to hear from anyone who might know where Myers is or have any information about him or the truck. Their number is 919-362-8661.
