Man reported missing from his home in Arcade.
On Friday, September 24, Arcade Police Department officers responded to a White Oak Trl. residence where a man told officers he had not seen or spoken to his male roommate since Friday, August 27.
The complainant stated he carried his roommate to a location in Winder on August 24 that was supposed to be a home for veterans. He said the woman he spoke with at this location kept insisting that his roommate bring $600 with him, but his roommate only had between $400 and $450 dollars at the time. The complainant said he became suspicious of the location and it was very similar to a half-way house.
The complainant said early in the morning on August 27 he saw his roommate in his driveway and his roommate said he was made to leave the facility due to his disabilities and other things that made the other residents upset.
The complainant said he had not seen his roommate since that time and when he calls his cell phone it goes straight to voicemail.
