On Sunday March 10, 2002. Kent's mother woke up and got dressed for church as she always does. Kent woke up and walked into the kitchen and peeked at his Mother in the den.
|Kent Jacobs was last seen wearing this sweatshirt from Cape Fear Harley-Davidson of Fayetteville, North Carolina|
That was the last time she saw him.
Wearing a Harley-Davidson sweatshirt, blue jeans and Reebok sneakers, Kent left to visit his childhood neighborhood approximately two miles away as he had for the past twenty-five years.
Sadly, the neighborhood of Kent's childhood is dramatically different today. It is filled with unsavory characters.
Kent would not have the intellectual capacity to initially sense danger. He had approximately $200.00 on his person.
He was last seen at 5:00 p.m. that Sunday. He did not meet his 5:00-6:00 p.m. curfew. His mother contacted authorities after speaking with her daughter in Seattle. Her daughter (Kent's younger sister) knew that something was terribly wrong! Her brother had a routine and that routine was disrupted. He had never been late for curfew.
The authorities have been searching for Kent, but continue to hit dead ends. He disappeared only a few yards from Interstate 95, which is a major interstate that stretches from New York to Florida.
