35-year-old Turner lives in Lenoir and drives a truck for a company in Lincoln County called Short Trucking Company.


According to the Hickory Daily Record, Turner’s boss was the last to hear from him because Turner called his boss on April 8 from South Carolina as he was on his way back from a run to Florida.


Turner reportedly had planned to spend Easter weekend with his 2-year-old son, but didn’t make it.  The Record also reports the18-wheeler Turner was driving and his personal vehicle were both found at Short Trucking Company.  Authorities estimate Turner dropped the tractor-trailer off between 3:00 and 5:00 a.m. on April 9.


Turner’s belongings were found in both vehicles and he didn’t pick up his last paycheck.


The Lenoir Police Department, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, and the State Bureau of Investigation are all looking for Turner and investigating leads.


Authorities told the Record it was too early in the investigation to say if Turner may have been killed or kidnapped.


Anyone with information about Turner or his whereabouts should contact the Lenoir Police Department at (828) 757-2100.
