A bulletin went out Friday from the Kent County Sheriff Department that Wesley Raymond Brown, 23, had been to see a friend on Stultz Rd NE and left sometime Tuesday morning on his bicycle. A clerk at Ree’s Country Store, on the corner of McClain and Lincoln Lake, also reported that he had come in that day.
On Friday evening tips came in that he was possibly seen in the area of Camp Greenwood, 13564 McClain, east of the store. The Sheriff Department, R.A.C.E.S., and the man’s family started a search in the area Saturday morning. Brown was located by his aunt, sleeping under a tree in the woods, where he had been for five days. He was wearing only shorts and a light shirt when found, and temperatures had been in the 30s and 40s at night.
Brown was taken to the United Hospital in Greenville, but did not have any life-threatening injuries. No comments were released on why the man went missing.
