Missing man might be endangered
A missing man last seen in Maryland might be endangered, and his family is worried.
Friends and family of 30-year-old David Barefoot are asking for help in locating the Hedgesville, W.Va., man, who has been missing since Monday. They feel he might have suffered a medical emergency and his life may be in danger.
Barefoot has been missing since 3 p.m. Monday January 11. He was last seen leaving the Dollar General at 415 S Conococheague St Ste 200, Williamsport, . He was in his car, a 2012 Toyota Camry SE silver/gray with WV plates 5HA-775.
Barefoot works in Hagerstown and lives in Hedgesville, WV., is about 5’6″ with dark brown hair and glasses. He was wearing the teal hoodie and blue jeans at the time of his disappearance.
“We believe he had a medical emergency because he has a history of seizures,” said his friend, Adrienne Blice.
Last year he had an aneurysm and was missing for six hours before being found in his car.
“That’s the only other time he went a long period without contact,” Blice said. He has been missing for two days this time.
A missing person’s report was filed with West Virginia State Police Tuesday afternoon by his mother.
“We have searched throughout Maryland and West Virginia and have not found his vehicle,” she said. “We are growing more and more concerned that the window to help him if he did have an episode is closing fast. As each day passes, that is another day he is not taking his medication to control the seizures.”
Blice said Barefoot does not have a girlfriend and none of his known associates have heard from him. He has no history of drug use.
“This is completely unlike his character (to disappear without contact),” she said. “Please help us bring our loved one home.”
Anyone who might have seen Barefoot, his vehicle or have any information about his whereabouts can contact Adrienne Blice at (412) 515-6544. West Virginia State Police can be reached for information about the case at 304-267-0000.
