Kent Jacobs, missing since March 10, 2002, has mental retardation and requires medication. Last seen in the Colonial Heights area of Hope Mills, North Carolina, Kent was physically 42 years old but had the mental capacity of a 9 year old.
On that Sunday morning, Kent's mother woke up and got dressed for church as she always did. Kent woke up and walked into the kitchen and peeked at his Mother in the den.
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. Kent would not have had the intellectual capacity to initially sense danger and 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.
Kent is very much loved and dearly missed. If you have any information whatsoever regarding his disappearance, please reach out and help give his family closure.
